City Sweets from Louis Vuitton
In 2009 Louis Vuitton installed three bee hives on the roof of its headquarters, attracting as many as 200,000 bees. This year, the luxury brand will celebrate their first honey harvest from these “Belle Jardinière” hives. The label bears the French fashion house’s signature symbols and reads “Produit a Paris par Louis Vuitton” (produced in Paris by Louis Vuitton).
The honey — not available for purchase — will be given to friends, colleagues and good clients. via Pursuitist

“What we have shown is that when a honeybee is subjected to a manipulation of its state that in humans would induce a feeling of anxiety, the bees show a similar suite of changes in physiology, cognition, and behavior to those we would measure in an anxious human,” (Geraldine) Wright (of Newcastle University) said. “In terms of what we are able to measure, a shaken honeybees is no less ‘anxious’ than a lonely dog or a rat in a barren cage.”
