Tambour Horizon The spirit of Louis Vuitton Travel

The new Tambour Horizon is a unique connected experience that fully encompasses Louis Vuitton’s spirit of travel, craftsmanship and creative values. Building on the success of previous models, this Tambour Horizon collection boasts a new element of design, new materials and new colours, taking user experience, functions and technical innovation further than ever before.

New exclusive options allow you to personalise the dial with your chosen watch face. In the spirit of connected technology, time display is essentially digital. The digital mode is embellished with emblematic motifs – Monogram, Damier, or even with the V for Gaston-Louis Vuitton. These have all been entirely reworked, deconstructed, and broken down to create transparent effects and contrasts with the Monogram Flowers. The new colour palette, the contrasting bands and the option of adding your initials mean that an almost infinite number of aesthetic combinations are possible all in the image of the House. Special watch faces have been added to the existing collection, featuring the same strong design aesthetic typical of a Louis Vuitton runway show.

Embodying Louis Vuitton’s art of travel, the Tambour Horizon watch enriches the “My Travel” experience by grouping all of your travel information together in one place. The dedicated watch faces sync with your hotel, flight or train bookings, as well as your departure and arrival times.

Accompanying you throughout your day, at work and at play, the Tambour Horizon offers exclusive new functions, combined with watch faces devoted to guarantee perfect readability and clarity. Across the rim, a new 24-hour ring with day/night indicator, visible even when the watch is in ambient mode, lets you view all your data at a glance. With its own watch face, the “Agenda” function separates meeting times from free time with distinctive coloured segments.

The “Step counter” function lets travellers who like to visit cities on foot record the distance treked and the most intensive periods of movement. Again, the watch face has a detailed design with the LV Archlight, the iconic Louis Vuitton sneaker, pictured at the centre.

The “Pollution” function displays the air quality index on the watch face in real time. Air quality projections are displayed in coloured segments. Weather and temperature forecasts put the finishing touches to the Tambour Horizon’s functions.

While the unisex case retains the emblematic Tambour Horizon shape and inverted curved case, the watch is now available in polished white ceramic. The use of this material in craftsmanship smart watchmaking is a true feat of technical excellence. In addition to new versions in polished steel, matte black PVD, white ceramic and white ceramic with gem-set horns, there is also a matte brown PVD model. This colour has been an integral part of Louis Vuitton’s aesthetic since 1854, used most prominently in the emblematic Monogram design.

Complementing Louis Vuitton’s style and expressing the concept of personalisation, interchangeable straps are available in new versions with unique patterns, colours and materials.

Making the Tambour Horizon watch even more intuitive, the various functions are now accessed quickly and easily with a rotating crown that can be turned with a single finger. With the new Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 3100 Platform**, the watch is now boasting an extended battery life of one full day and up to 5 additional days in watch mode (time display only). It also has an improved screen with excellent definition.

Louis Vuitton Miami Design District will be the only store in the US to prelaunch the Men’s Spring Summer 2018 collection on January 10th before the official launch on the 19th.Inspired by the idea of exotic islands and travel, Kim Jones’ Spring Summer 2018 collection is overflowing with colorful prints, technical details and light weight fabrics.

 

In the spirit of the collection, Louis Vuitton has redesigned an iconic VW bus which will be parked outside the Design District store fromJanuary 10th to 22nd, before it departs for Rodeo Drive and lastly heads to Waikiki Gump. 

 

Miami-themed limited edition bumper stickers will be gifted with each purchase from the Spring Summer 2018 menswear collection. Louis Vuitton Miami Design District will also be the first store in the US to offer the SS18 surfboard. Additionally, exclusive Monogram Pacific leather goods will be available for purchase only at the Miami Design District store.


The fabrics are lightweight, modern and fluid. Technical skills, tonic mohairs and seersucker, a paper-thin “scuba” lambskin leather bonded with neoprene – fabrics that travel well and are practical, both demanded by the modern island-hopper and emblematic of the functional, technical roots of Louis Vuitton. Colours contrast the signature Monogram palette of earth tones with shades of khaki and flashes of sports-inspired neon, all “surrounded” by the deep ocean blue. 

The key theme of fusion is literally echoed in the accessories. The new style, the Monogram Split, contrasts different colourways of Louis Vuitton’ s iconic Monogram canvas, emphasized with a centre seam. The style is offered in classic Keepalls, re-engineered with a lateral seam; or the tidtotee with an oversized style split vertically, including the handle, which is taken from those traditionally used on the trunks. From mountains of trunks, to hand-luggage only- this is another journey, from past to present, charting the needs of the contemporary bigger. 

New colourways and treatments of the iconic Monogram are introduced – Pacific, a cobalt-blue, Oceania-inspirwd iteration and Reflect, whose hi-vis reflective finish is influenced by high-impact sport. 

The importance of the sportswear theme-surfing, scuba and trekking- is underscored by a new technical, sports inspired line, “Monogram Outdoor”, which mixes canvas with sports webbing, scuba, zips, cording and hardware based in the coloured metal if a climber’s carabiner clips, creating new styles infused with the energy and and dynamism of outdoor pursuits. Other styles play with the recent archive – blowing up the ‘Noe’ bag into oversized backpacks, and revisiting clog style shoes first offered for women. The footwear cross-breads these clogs with hiking boots, Harajuku with Honolulu. The construction of Louis Vuitton trunks inspire soles in dovetailed lightweight ash and nailhead metallic details – as modern today as they seemed 163 years ago. 

The soundtrack is as unique as the clothes: the musician Drake has recorded a song inspired by this collection, to be premiered at the show. Another fusion – between music and high fashion.
