Experience Hawaii, Mexico and Tokyo with Louis Vuitton
It's always easy to Google image search travel destinations that we dream of setting foot on to fulfil our inner wanderlust. But why look at actual pictures when you can get artistic, illustrated interpretations? Presenting the Louis Vuitton Travel Books, an invitation to real and virtual voyages, enriched by intellectual stimulation and poignant moments. In its pages, renowned artists and young talents from all around the world explore different countries and translate their perspective through various forms of art. Whether it's through drawings, paintings or manga, each piece of work lends a contemporary vision to places we only dream of stepping foot on. Having covered countries from Paris to Vietnam in their previous collections, this year's edition takes us to the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, the quaint architecture in Mexico, and the cityscapes of Tokyo.
Fans of the Aloha State will adore how Croatian comic book artist Esad Ribic — known for his myriad of works for Marvel Comics — cleverly juxtaposes waves and buildings, with a predominant use of earth colours like blue and green. French illustrator Nicolas de Crécy depicts Mexico as a bustling city state filled with colour, while German trio EBOY explores the different facets of Japan like a kawaii video game, using pixelated art and Shinjuku-bright colours, no less. The best part of it all is that each artist explores a country which they've never been to before, so as to confront an unfamiliar place with a viewpoint sharpened with the surprise of the unknown.
With this stunning visual treat by Louis Vuitton, we never have to imagine how different cities look like again.
