With Louis Vuitton, travel has always been at the heart of the Parisian luxury label that’s famed for its signature trunks and luggage. Besides keeping their contents safe, these trunks allowed travellers to look their best as they move from one exotic locale to another. But that was back then. Today, what was originally created to house and protect items on long-haul travels have evolved into everyday bags that we use on our daily commute. While significantly shrunken in size, these bags still retain elements from their predecessors and hold the very essence and heritage of the brand.
From the traditional Hat Box that has evolved into today’s Petite Boîte Chapeau, along with leather bucket bags originally crafted to carry fine bottles of champagne that is today the Noé BB which we have come to know and love today, to giant trunks that have been shrunken into the Petite Malle that’s become an icon in her own right, it’s amazing how Louis Vuitton manages to retain its heritage of trunk-making and the love of travel till this very day in the form of its latest adaptations.
And if you want to witness Louis Vuitton’s Elegance in Motion for yourself, you can by heading down to ION Orchard to visit their ongoing #LVTimeCapsule exhibition that will end its run on 5 November 2017. Open from 10 to 10 every day, this is an experience you won’t want to miss, especially since admission is also free.
