Louis Vuitton City Guides are celebrating their 15th year with a complete makeover and a collection that now covers 15 of the world’s most exciting cities. Intimate and delightfully surprising, this global exploration takes us across all the continents to discover these vibrant metropolises.

The soft cover volumes are as practical as ever, with a colorful new look, a streamlined layout, a convenient table of contents and new sections. What hasn’t changed is the hand-picked selection of addresses, from sophisticated to quirky.  Readers are directed off the beaten path to charming hotels, unexpected eateries, cafés and boutiques.

The City Guides are also very much about the writing craft, with insider contributions by journalists, authors or figures from the arts. All share their insights into the cities with a voluntarily relaxed and unconventional style. Also new in this edition are five suggested walks for a novel discovery of the city while getting from one place to the next.

To capture the soul of the cities, Louis Vuitton invited the French photographers’ collective Tendance Floue to convey their take on urban wanderlust. Beyond architecture, this visual promenade focuses our attention on things we might never have noticed.
