Latest Lifestyle News: Vuitton Hit the Brand Value High Mark

It may not be the most glamorous side of the luxury industry, but brand valuations are nonetheless a crucial marker of success.

Our lead story today turns the focus away from product and instead to profit, with a report on a recent survey that revealed legendary French fashion label Louis Vuitton to be the world’s most valuable luxury brand.

Elsewhere this week, we take a look at what would be one of the most decadent additions to London’s luxury landscape in the shape of the world’s first 360-degree infinity pool. Still at concept stage, the pool would sit atop one of the capital’s highest buildings, offering stunning views all around.

In the car world, we bring you news of the all-new Bentley Flying Spur, while lovers of the iconic American gangster series The Sopranos now have the chance to purchase the real life house lived in by Tony Soprano during the fictional show.

There’s also a couple of eye-catching technology launches, with Bee & Kin unveiling a smart-tech designer handbag, and the recent design of a copper mug with remote temperature control.

Finally for this week, we turn the spotlight on the latest diversification by peer-to-peer taxi company Uber, and Soho House’s unveiling of a lavish furniture and homeware collection in the US.

That’s all for now. Until next time, have a decadent week and we’ll see you back here again for another luxury round-up before long.
