Louis Vuitton and Maison Tamboite Team Up to Create a Stylish Bike
Louis Vuitton has always been associated with the art of traveling. The brand’s luggage pieces have become a staple for luxe jet-setters, especially the classic trunks that have become a LV signature. But in a year when we all forgot about vacations, the French maison wants you to discover the world in a new way, which is why we are now drooling over the stylish Louis Vuitton bike.
Developed in collaboration with Maison Tamboite – a company that might come to mind when you’re daydreaming about handcrafted French bicycles, the LV bike by Louis Vuitton x Maison Tamboite is basically a refined version of the Maison Tamboite Paris model. They had to start off somewhere.
The two Parisian names, masters of their craft, joined forces in order to deliver unrivaled luxury in the form of a stunning hand-made bicycle.
Featuring a seat and frame wrapped in the signature LV monogrammed leather – with a lovely Monogram flower chain set and an interlocking LV-shaped frame incorporated into the design, this beautiful bicycle also shows off bright red leather-wrapped handlebars, as well as a monogram leather luggage rack right above the rear wheel.
The unique LV Bike also benefits from a few old-school touches, such as the incorporation of wood for the mudguards and multispoke rims lined with a superb wooden red-and-white LV branded wheel trim.
But the LED lights, built-in tracker, and the strategically positioned shock absorbers underneath the seat quickly remind you that this bike was designed for the 21st-century shopper. Do you like what you see?
Not one, not two, but four versions of this stylish, ultra-luxurious Louis Vuitton bike is now available at Louis Vuitton stores worldwide – made to order.
You can have your own LV bicycle monogrammed with red Louis Vuitton perforated Mahina leather, or perhaps go for a “Damier Graphite” look with black, gray, and yellow details. There’s also a special “Lime Yellow” colorway and an exclusive Nicolas Ghesquière-designed “Since 1854” Monogram. Take your pick.
