The Louis Vuitton $2,890 Horizon Light Up Speaker. Is it a centerpiece or a handbag? It’s both!
According to Louis Vuitton, the idea is that the Horizon speaker will serve as an artistic centerpiece of your living room or outfit, a unique blend of fashion and technology that aims to challenge what a portable speaker should look like. Yep.
Louis Vuitton entered the audio market in 2019 with a Masters & Dynamic partnered wireless headphone. Now they’ve moved on to speakers.
Between the glass, stainless steel, and leather construction, 35 LEDs, and the brand’s traditional symbols and logos amply plastered it’s a statement no matter where you…put it.
Horizon comes from a world where speaker and handbag can both cost almost $3000. The company says that the Horizon speaker is inspired by its similarly shaped Toupie handbag, which sold for a similar price, but which now sells used for as much as $4900.
The Horizon features a three-inch subwoofer, two 0.75-inch tweeters, three microphones for voice calls, up to 15 hours of playback off a charge, an included charging / display dock, and both Bluetooth 5.1 and AirPlay 2 for wireless audio. It even charges via USB-C. So clearly worth almost $3,000 to get those things.
The Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up speaker is available to order now from Louis Vuitton’s website, although it won’t ship until July 31st.
