Louis Vuitton recently had a dinner to honor Wes Anderson and the movie “The Darjeeling Limited”. What piqued my interest about the event was the appearance of the “Mumbai” Travel Notebook by Louis Vuitton, which was given to every guest.
Mind you, this book is sold out! You can find every other travel notebook on E-Luxury except the “Mumbai” notebook. :(
The notebook consists of illustrations based on India by Florine Asch. Before you make a judgement about the illustrations (about having the “cliched” elephants, maharajahs and turbans), let me tell you that the book has illustrations on landmarks and city scenes(the mumbai dabbawallas!).
The notebook retails for $81, which in “LV” terms is pretty darn cheap, in my opinion. Gosh, now I gotta go and schmooze the sales guy at the LV store to get me one!
Check out the “Mumbai” Travel Notebook on the Louis Vuitton website by searching for “notebook”.
