Fashion fix

Legendary trunks

Louis Vuitton has launched a book called Louis Vuitton: 100 Legendary Trunks.
This book, with a preface by Patrick-Louis Vuitton, showcases  some of the beautiful creations from the fashion house through more than 800 photographs. The trunk-bed, steamer trunk, tea case, toiletry kit, circus trunk, library trunk, and caviar box are just a few of the many pieces featured here, along with stories of their creation. The edition reveals the secrets of making a Louis Vuitton trunk.

The Deluxe edition comes with a hard slipcase with monogram canvas, reinterpreted from the 1896 original pattern and with hotel label stickers.

From the first domed trunks to the most modern designs produced in the workshops of Asnières today, the spirit of the House of Louis Vuitton  hopes to evoke a desire to elevate travel to an art.
