Since 1854, Louis Vuitton‘s monogram appears on many products, ranging from luxury trunks and leather goods to ready-to-wear, shoes, watches, jewelry, accessories, sunglasses, and books. When talking about luxury trunks, brand’s latest creation is the Zephyr Suitcase.
Created by the leather goods craftsmen at the Saint-Donat workshop in the Drôme region of France, this four-wheeled travel case in thermocompressed Monogram canvas is suitable for all journeys thanks to its stitching and discreet fibre glass frame. There are also a few cowhide leather inserts on the case, as well as a leather tag for identification. Also, its 360° wheels are subtly silent and agile while the retractable cane has 4 levels of height adjustment.
LV Zephyr Suitcase is available in two sizes: 55 (9.4″ x 22.0 x 14.6″) and 70 (17.7″ x 29.1″ x 11.4″) and can be purchased at Louis Vuitton stores for $3,450 and $4,250 for the 55 and 70 respectively.
The London store tapped the services of New York-based architect Peter Marino, who also designed Louis Vuitton’s Paris store. The 15,000-square meter London outlet has two floors with walls of trunks where the company’s leather products are showcased, a glass and an LED staircase. The first floor houses ladies wear and shoes, the lower ground floor has the men’s collection, while the second storey serves as private client suit open only by invitation.
