Those familiar with Wes Anderson's films will know his characters - from the estranged patriarch in "The Royal Tenenbaums" to the eccentric Steve Zissou in "The Life Aquatic" - tend to carry around a lot of emotional baggage. Now fans can get their hands on baggage of a different kind--- The whimsical Louis Vuitton luggage featured in Anderson's latest, "The Darjeeling Limited". The luggage is available through a silent auction benefiting UNICEF and the Rawal Mallinathji Foundation, a medical treatment charity in India. Though the film premieres at the New York Film Festival on September 29, you can start bidding now at the LV store on 57th and 5th Avenue. If LV luggage is not in your budget, you can also check out the auteur's 17-minute short, 'Hotel Chevalier', starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman, for free at 9 pm tonight at the Soho Apple Store. --NATALIE GUEVARA
