The Next Generation of Louis Vuitton Travel Trunk

By Rose-Hannah Lishman

If you like luxury fashion, you probably never thought you’d see the day when practicality and new era design flair were used in the same sentence, let alone see the two come together in an accessory. But, the day is finally here. Showing us that high-end fashion can be practical is Marc Newson, and he’s the aerospace and technology designer giving Louis Vuitton luggage a whole new reason to be lusted over.

The bar was set high for Newson. Louis Vuitton (or LV as they’re often branded) has a history of producing luggage for people who want to transport their fine things inside a fine outer shell.

It makes sense… why carry your beautiful pieces of designer clothing inside an ugly but practical suitcase from an unknown brand? For the last 150 years, Louis Vuitton made is possible to pack up and jet off in style, as cliché as it sounds.

Born a French-box maker, the packaging professional began to create beautiful trunks in his countryside abode, bound in leather and sealed with that infamous LV mark of approval that would eventually become converted by luxury-lovers all over the world.

Fast-forward to the 21st century, and the brand are taking their iconic travel trunks into the future, releasing their new collection which showcases all that history, grandeur and demand but with less of a weight on their shoulders.

Thanks to innovative materials, the classic suitcase has been transformed into a lightweight, 4-wheeled cabin-worthy piece, which not only offers the maximum interior capacity for your prized possessions, but also has 4-wheels and still offers an air of travelling with elegance. The new collection will take you from resort to runway with ease and sophistication.

A rolling trunk for the 21st century luxury traveller is definitely what Louis Vuitton should be producing with thanks to Marc Newson and the iconic appeal of one of the world’s leading luxury brands.
