Louis Vuitton Tambour Slim Rainbow
Louis Vuitton dresses its iconic model in the colours of the rainbow.
For Autumn-Winter 2019, Virgil Abloh, Artistic Director of the Louis Vuitton Men's Collections, takes us to the incandescent streets of New York with a combination of design and street art. A blend of colours contrasts brightly against the black background of the accessories. Similarly, the new Tambour Slim Rainbow dons an entirely black case with PVD coating.

The matt black dial's geometric motif, a fluorescent rainbow X, echoes the design codes of the leather goods and accessories, setting the tone for the collection. The dial of the Tambour Slim Rainbow watch has been hand-decorated by one of the craftsmen from La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton using the transfer method. The process consists of transferring the painting onto the dial using a silicon‑coated rubber stamp. This operation is carried out by hand, colour by colour, creating a precise result suited to all types of shape and design. It takes 42 layers of paint and the same number of drying hours at 100 degrees to produce the dial.
