Louis Vuitton’s Horizon earphones received a refresh for the New Year. The French fashion house revised the line with new, themed entries that more closely align visually with Vuitton’s colorful ‘Horizon’ line of luggage and accessories—and sport noise-cancelling to boot.
Vuitton’s initial forays into wireless earphones appeared last winter, and featured classic understated Vuitton iconography. The new entries trade in the classic uptown travel-ready look for a more active, beach-ready appeal. Colors are strikingly affirming, with bright red, yellow, and pink represented; black or white options are available too, for those who prefer all colors in one, or none at all.
Like the initial entries, the new, ‘Horizon’-themed earphone designs are Bluetooth-enabled, and may of course be used with Vuitton’s Horizon smartwatch. That puts all controls and selections within easy reach, via simple navigation.
And the Vuitton logo is still in there, more forcefully expressed on a shining chrome badge. The lone exception is the pink set, which expresses brand allegiance more subtly, via classic Vuitton arcana.
