Looking for a sense of escapism during quarantine? Globetrotters, hang tight, we’ve got something for you.
Admit it or not, we all need a little wanderlust during this distressing time. To travel far away even without a ticket, there is no better ship than a book.
Luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton has expanded its horizons for its Travel Book Collection and we are all geared up for the new editions. After covering the world’s most iconic municipalities, cosmopolitan travellers can now seek some more enchanting destinations.
As the spring 2020 season kicks off, we will see three new titles and three new destinations — Barcelona, St. Petersburg, and Morocco. Splurge onto an adventurous trip through the eyes of the three talented artists and breathe the culture, see the architecture, understand the features of local life, and learn everything about these beautiful cities.
The Louis Vuitton Travel Book series is an open invitation for us to experience a virtual voyage enriched by intellectual stimulation and touching moments. It’s as real as it can get for now. Flip through the pages and discover each place’s varied architecture and unique culture, through the illustrations of world-renowned artists. Not to mention, you can also travel through the eyes of promising young talents telling the stories of the cities and countries they’ve visited. It’s a deep horizon of not only each city but a record of the passing days and lives of its people.
French figurative painter Marc Desgrandchamps unveils the vivid scenery of Barcelona and lines of the dwindling city, even turning to George Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia to deepen his understanding. Gaze through the Basílica de la Sagrada Família and the colourful streets through his work.
Canadian contemporary artist Marcel Dzama takes us down to the mystical country of Morocco with his bewitching stroke. Imagine sceneries featuring exotic camels, mysterious girls in long velvet robes, stunning landscapes, and a starry night full of magic.
American fashion illustrator Kelly Beeman adds finesse into a Saint Petersburg full of momentum and drive. His vision recreates the likes of towering Peter and Paul Fortress like no other.
