Louis Vuitton is a world-famous luxurious clothing brand, and now they have extended their product to whole new level. It has revealed details of its first bicycle collection, a collaboration between them and the Parisian manufacturer Maison Tamboite.
The bikes are covered in Louis Vuitton monograms and wrapped in leather. And as one could guess, it’s crazy expensive. One cost $ 28,900, literally costing an arm and a limb.
According to Cycling Tips, there are two styles of bike: a step-through and a “closed frame” – which are both chrome-accented town bikes. There is one size for each. The step-through is suitable for riders from “4’9″ – 5’4″ / 150 – 165 cm” the other one claims to fit riders from “5’2″ – 5’9″ / 165 – 180 cm”. (For those bike enthusiasts, you know what these numbers mean.)
Depending on the model you choose, the bikes come equipped with leather-accented porteur racks or rear pannier racks – a good location to put whatever you have on your hands, maybe a Louis Vuitton bag?
Maison Tamboite, the builder of these bikes, is a boutique town bike manufacturer located in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. Its website talks up its confidentiality and discretion, its secret courtyard off rue Saint Nicholas, and its four-generation history of making luxury bicycles for Parisian elites like Edith Piaf. That said, it does not reveal the price its bike cost, because pricing is hidden in the locked ‘Confidential Universe’ section.
