If you are a world fashion enthusiast and make it a point to visit the most stylish cities in the world, there is probably no guide that you will spare that is published by a renowned fashion house. This alone appraises the fact that how seriously the fashion houses measure the must visit cities against a severe yardstick and how important it is to anybody to who is interested.
And when it comes to Louis Vuitton, who would dare but cross their supreme results? Nevertheless, a recent decision and edition of their world city guides has sparked quite a bit of a controversy. Word is that while the brand was considering Scotland, it ended up choosing Glasgow over Edinburgh, which also happens to be the capital of Scotland.
Amongst various debates and arguments, let’s try to find why.
People who are absolutely crazy about stylish luggage have surely heard about Louis Vuitton and deeply admire the products. Though the brand has branched out into several other avenues, the brand still remains to be well loved for its luggage.
Though the brand is yet to reveal as to its sudden and unexpected predicament, various theories have been put forward as to why Glasgow was chosen over Edinburgh. The roads and the trams, it seems, has come to be the capital’s Nemesis. Moreover, many feel that Glasgow is much more vibrant and pays attention to style and statement and Edinburgh has just become a waste of time.
In fact, many experts have argued that the city of Glasgow is getting way more important in the eyes of the global market and is proving its mettle both culturally and as a style and retail hub. Moreover, Glasgow it seems is steadily growing in both numbers and quality and have sprout several restaurants, bars and entertainment centers, making Louis Vuitton choose it to cover.
The problem of why Louis Vuitton is being called quite the Grinch lies somewhere else entirely. While Glasgow has been twice named as one of the must-visits and is being covered the second time for the 2013 slot, the store of the French brand was nevertheless opened in Edinburgh, the capital.
Other cities to be included for the 2013 guide include Venice, Vienna, Budapest and of course Cannes. London and Manchester have been covered too. The list strongly focuses upon the cities from Britain only. As such the whole guide packs in 40 cities from around the world.
