Louis Vuitton houses master craftsmen at a facility in Asnieres where they have been making all the special order custom luggage and leather goods for 150 years, which is pretty incredible. Aside from the history, I’m still dreaming up what exactly I’d order for myself if I could? (They can even do solar-powered DVD trunks!)
According to WWD, to celebrate this major anniversary they commissioned six luminaries to create their own custom creations to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s on November 17th and benefiting the Red Cross, which also happens to be turning 150 years old.
So who made the list and whatever did they create? For example, LV lenswoman Annie Leibovitz asked for a backpack that could fit her gear and some of her own personal items; Damien Hirst, a black trunk lined in blue with drawers to hold surgicial instruments; and Marc Jacobs, a luxe carrier to hold his terriers, Daisy and Alfred, in the airplane cargo area, complete with a special space for a picture of Marc. Rounding out the list are Patrick-Louis Vuitton, Spanish chef Ferran Adria, and composer Gustavo Santaolalla.
Any thoughts on what you’d have the LV artisans make just for you?
