The historic Asnières workshop in France has been the heart of Louis Vuitton's trunk making since 1859, where five hundred objects are handcrafted each year. In Milan, alongside iconic designs such as the wardrobe trunk, a selection of novelty hard-sided pieces such as a DJ trunk, a beauty bar trunk, and a picnic trunk are being showcased as examples of the bespoke special-order creations crafted for a wide variety of Louis Vuitton clients. For the Milan Event, a painter will be on hand to demonstrate the art of trunk painting and to highlight the personalization options currently available to clients.
In addition to the special trunks, Louis Vuitton is revealing a selection of exceptional crocodile leather bags where artisans have developed cutting-edge techniques or employed age-old traditions to take luxury to new heights of refinement. Working with crocodile allows the Maison's legendary savoir-faire to create pieces that are not only sophisticated, but utterly contemporary. Also on display are various crocodile versions of iconic Louis Vuitton bags such as Capucines, Cannes, Dauphine Mini, Twist Mini and City Steamer Mini, as well as a selection of men's leather goods.
