While you may already have (or dream about) a closet filled with Louis Vuitton, the French luxury label has just launched a new accessory that is set to take over the rest of your interiors.
The House has announced the launch of the Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up, a new portable speaker that showcases the label’s ability to turn a utilitarian item into a piece of art. With a cosmic-inspired aesthetic and an unrivaled sound quality, this speaker is one of the best smart speakers in both the technological and fashion industries – so naturally – we’re pre-ordering one as we speak.
While the iconic label is not best associated with audio products, Louis Vuitton has already released several high-end technological pieces which epitomize daring design and perfect craftsmanship. The brand takes an unorthodox approach to the everyday, and the Horizon Light Up is certainly no exception.
With high-fashion running through its DNA, the speaker stems from the Toupie (‘Spinning Top’) handbag, designed by Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s collections Nicolas Ghesquière. With its fearless circular design, Toupie created a new generation of evening bags, and now, this speaker will rewrite your modern home decor ideas in the same way.
As indisputable leather masters, the House has a century-old relationship with leather and metal – a heritage that is ever-evident in the craftsmanship of the speaker. The piece is bound in fine leather and metal and is kissed with Louis Vuitton’s legendary emblematic signature.
Once turned on, the speaker adopts a certain space-age vibrancy, complete with a remix of LED lights and a covered woofer that vibrates light a heartbeat. Well, this is the beating heart of the most stylish house parties, after all.
Plus, the UFO shape is not without its acoustic benefits. Alongside looking painfully stylish, the shape means the sound plays at 360 degrees when sitting on its dock. However, if you place the speaker on its side, your playlist can be targeted in a specific direction.
Though, when the party draws to a close, Louis Vuitton created the piece as the ultimate travel companion, so you drench space in music, wherever you are. The speaker uses wireless connectivity through Bluetooth and is also compatible with Apple AirPlay 2 and Qplay via Wi-Fi.
