If there’s one thing Louis Vuitton knows how to do well (besides gorgeous apparel, shoes, accessories, etc), it’s travel trunks. The fashion house has been creating them for 162 years.
This time round, Louis Vuitton is taking its iconic trunks into the 21st century with a new Rolling Luggage collection, designed in collaboration with renowned industrial designer Marc Newson.
Having drawn experience and inspiration from a range of industries, including aerospace, technology and fashion, Newson has created a range that’s as functional and practical as it is visually stunning.
Each luggage has an ultra-thin titanium layer that’s bonded to its shell to form a case that’s lightweight, sturdy and durable. The full-width cane is positioned on the exterior of the luggage, allowing the interior to be completely flat so you can fit in more essentials. It also sports a one-zip puller system, and compact wheels that keep the design simple, portable and quiet.
The Rolling Luggage is currently available in two sizes: A handy Mini 50 which is perfect for a weekend getaway, and a larger Cabin 55, which fits the maximum hand-carry cabin luggage dimensions exactly.
Get yours in the iconic Monogram or Damier canvases, that you can then personalise with your initials and Louis Vuitton’s traditional coloured stripes using the Mon Monogram service. Or opt for one in natural VVN leather, soft Taiga leather or the bold Epi leather versions available in a variety of vibrant colours.
Besides the trunks, complete your travel experience with accessories like briefcases, computer sleeves, pouches, suit covers and shoe bags from the line. Also, keep a look out for a bigger check-in luggage trunk and another variation in titanium that will be available from 2017.
Another reason to shop the Louis Vuitton Rolling Luggage — Singapore is one of the first countries to launch the range before the rest of the world does. And who doesn’t like a little exclusivity, right?
