Louis Vuitton Create Ultra Stylish DJ Trunk
Louis Vuitton has teamed up with high-end audio experts Devialet to create a luxurious DJ trunk designed to store all the essential tools a DJ needs for a performance.
A modern take on the iconic Stokowski writing-desk trunk created by Louis Vuitton for the famous conductor in 1930 to transport his work kit, this iteration is made up of a folding beech-wood table covered in black cowhide, a custom-made bag in Monogram Eclipse for storing about twenty vinyl, and a box to accommodate a turntable.
For the DJ Trunk, Devialet designed a special limited edition of the Gold Phantom, marked with the logos of Louis Vuitton and Devialet. Its metal sides have a ruthenium finish that perfectly complements the DJ Trunk.
“Only Phantom could meet Louis Vuitton’s requirements of a transportable product capable of delivering a powerful and immersive sound, allowing to experience true emotions at a live concert level from home,” says Quentin Sannié, co-founder and CEO of Devialet.
“The DJ Trunk is the dream come true of an exceptional product combining high technology and unique and secular know-how.”
The trunk was created by hand in Louis Vuitton’s historic workshops in Asnières near Paris. It trades in the traditional monogram canvas for an edgier Monogram Eclipse canvas (a grey and black Monogram), with ruthenium metal accessories on the outside and dark grey microfiber on the inside.
Founded in France in 1854, Louis Vuitton has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned luxury fashion brands.
