A BRIEF HISTORY OF LOUIS VUITTON
Before the Wright Brothers were the first in flight and Karl Friedrich Benz engineered the first petrol automobile, travelers in horse-drawn carriages, boats, and trains longed to find durable yet stylish trunks to accompany them on their travels. When 16-year-old Louis Vuitton began working with admired custom box-maker, Monsieur Maréchal, in 1837, his craft quickly obtained high-regards amongst Parisian travelers.
After 17-years of customizing boxes and trunks at Monsieur Maréchal’s Parisian atelier, Vuitton opened his own shop near the Place Vendome. Stylish, iconic, and durable, Louis Vuitton’s monogrammed "LV" and Damier collections remain some of the most revered handbags and luggage around the world.

Nicolas Ghesquière set the stage for the Resort season in Rio de Janeiro this afternoon. Celebrities and fashion insiders—including Alicia Vikander, Alessandra Ambrosio, Zendaya and Jaden Smith—flocked to Brazil for the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 show at the Oscar Niemeyer-designed Niterói Contemporary Art Museum. The collection drew inspiration from the city's vibrant art and culture, featuring pieces in splashycolors and prints, and futuristic silhouettes with sporty details. Accessories were equally cool—with such standouts as the label's signature trunk made over to look like a boombox and gladiator sandals with an athletic update.
Rio de Janeiro is in the eye of a storm, beset by a collapsing government, economic turmoil and the zika-virus-carrying A. Aegypti mosquito. On top of that, it has an Olympic Games to deliver in 68 days. The metro system isn't finished, let alone the beach volleyball stadium which will be the pride of Copacabana Beach but is currently nothing more than a mass of scaffolding in the sand.
Into this maelstrom last night came Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of womenswear at Louis Vuitton, to showcase his latest cruise collection for the French luxury behemoth. At first glance, his choice of the Brazilian port city seems almost as quixotic as Karl Lagerfeld’s decision to stage a Chanel cruise show in Cuba three weeks ago. It's certainly as much of a fashion ‘first’ as the Havana spectacular since there's never before been a major international catwalk show in Rio. But while the Cubans have been cut off from the wider world in fashion terms for about 60 years, Brazilians have very much kept up with the rest of us. Not only do they have genuine card-carrying supermodels - Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima to name merely three - they are also avid consumers of Vuitton’s handbags, luggage and accessories. And now, surely, of its fashion too.
Ghesquière is a lover of architecture, so the choice of venue was almost as important for him as the clothes he paraded there. And his building of choice was certainly spectacular. The Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói, designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and built in the 1990s, looks like a white flying saucer that has touched down on the tip of a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea about an hour’s drive from the centre of Rio. The only way out of the building is down a curving spool of crimson concrete that spirals down to the ground, creating the most dramatic runway any of the 47 seasoned models there can ever have walked. Louis Vuitton was founded in 1854 in order to help the wealthy travel in comfort and style, and Ghesquière has been true to the brief.
There was a sport and an athleticism to the clothes, whether white-stretch, multi-pocketed trousers, or performance-fabric, zip-fastened mini-dresses, that indicated that, whoever the Vuitton woman is, she’ll be going places this autumn. She’ll also be striding out in comfort since the shoes and boots shown on the catwalk were resolutely forgiving neoprene - and were the thong-toed lace-up boots inspired by flipflops? There were more nods to Brazil in the footballer print inspired by the local artist Aldemir Martins’ paintings of Pelè that adorned some tank tops. Meanwhile the ruffles, hot blues and reds, and cutaway sections on many of the mini-dresses evoked a spirit of carnival.
As did the bags - some of which were styled to look exactly like a 1980s boom box, while others delighted with their fringing, graffiti decoration and vibrant pinks, yellows and scarlets. ‘I’m a Frenchman who’s come to present a French luxury collection but it’s also tropical and exotic,’ explained Ghesquière. ‘Nature is explosive here, and at the same time you have these wonderful buildings. It’s a beautiful chaos.’
Watching this joyous marriage of Vuitton and Rio was a hand-picked group of celebrities including the French icon Catherine Deneuve, the Swedish Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, Jaden (son of Will) Smith, and Adriana Lima. Beautiful chaos indeed.
Marc Newson, pictured with three rolling trunks made in collaboration with Louis Vuitton
Australia's most lauded design export, Marc Newson, has again collaborated with Louis Vuitton on a range of rolling luggage that marries the designer's signature predilection for biomorphic curvilinear forms and bold colours with the 'art of travel' ethos that underpins the storied French house.
Dropping in stores from July 15 and online from September 30, Vuitton and Newson's rolling trunks were 18 months in the making and are a surefire sign that haute hand luggage has reached its zenith. Each piece boasts, per Vuitton, "a new type of self-reinforced polypropylene composite, essentially representing the structure of the trunk, moulded in a mesh matrix of several layers" - meaning the cases are both light and able to withstand the rigours of travel. Other innovations include "a transversal side hinge" that allows for a complete 180 degree opening; a three-digit TSA approved combination lock to secure your invaluable assets and a single zip - all in the name of reducing weight and streamlining your time in transit, and all of which are patent pending.
"I think it’s safe to say that we’re striving to break new ground in terms of developing a product which is one of the lightest on the market, and from a technical perspective is one of the most rigorously designed and engineered" says Newson.
Newson has previously worked with Vuitton on the creation of a leather and shearling backpack 'Celebrating Monogram'.
Gotta catch 'em all, I guess.

The Newson x LV trunk will be available in the signature Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier check print, Graphite, Taiga leather and in natural cowhide leather that comes in seven colours of Epi leather
Newson's designs, 18 months in development, eventuated in an increased internal volume of 15%
"What compelled me to join forces with Louis Vuitton was the challenge to design a great piece of luggage, because like a lot of people, I travel a lot"

If you’re a fan of Louis Vuitton (who isn’t these days, especially with what Kim Jones has done for the mens collection in recent years) and design wunderkind Marc Newson, here’s a new collection from the French luxury house that will get you excited for sure.
In collaboration with Marc Newson, Louis Vuitton has launched a new collection ofRolling Luggages that aims to meet the needs of today’s 21st century traveller. Featuring 3 important innovations that every frequent flyer will appreciate, it a) is made up of an ultra-thin titanium layer bonded to the polypropylene composite shell that makes it super lightweight, b) comes with an external full-width extendable cane (handle) with a simple zip puller closing system and c) is the very first of all Louis Vuitton luggages today to have four wheels, In other words, it’s light, it’s easy to use and most importantly, it will be easier to manoeuver as well, which should cut time spent from the time you disembark the plane to getting into your car by at least a third.
Available in 2 sizes, a Mini50 and a Cabin55 (because God forbid you check in something as gorgeous and as precious as this), this would be the luggage you use for a short two-day trip (use the Mini 50) or go for the maximum allowed onto any airline (the Cabin 55).

Now for the best part. The Rolling Luggages will come in at least 6 different finishes, which means after you’ve decided on the size, you’ll have to choose from between the following: Monogram Canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Epi (a virtual rainbow of choices here), Taiga and something called VVN, which is basically Vuitton’s vachetta leather wrapped around the entire luggage and one that will patina beautifully over time.

Priced from SGD3650 all the way to SGD8100 depending on finish and size, here’s another bit of information that will please all of you in Singapore. Whilst the rest of South Asia will only get this new collection sometime in end-September, we can all buy it now at Louis Vuitton boutiques across the island, from Marina Bay Sands to Ngee Ann City and ION Orchard.
So what do I have my eye on? Right now it’s the Cabin55 in either Monogram Canvas orMonogram Eclipse, which are also the only ones (along with Damier Graphite) that can be personalised with your initials with LV’s Mon Monogram service. How not to #LVOE?
