KEEP ROLLING

The Peak (Malaysia) - - The Brief -

Marc New­son lends his bold spirit to Louis Vuit­ton’s iconic rolling trunks.

Louis Vuit­ton and Marc New­son have joined hands to in­tro­duce the fu­ture of travel with a range of rolling trunks that boasts not only a glam­orous new look, but also rev­o­lu­tion­ary fea­tures. Af­ter 18 months of rig­or­ous de­vel­op­ment and de­sign, the re­sult is a lightweight and ro­bust, yet stylish trunk with 15 per cent in­crease in in­ter­nal vol­ume – the cabin-sized trunk weighs a mere 3kg with a re­mark­able 37-litre ca­pac­ity. The ex­cit­ing in­no­va­tions (all sub­mit­ted for patents) fea­tured on these trunks in­clude a TSA-ap­proved zip-pull lock sys­tem of ul­tra-slim alu­minium in­te­grated with a sin­gle zip­per pull that re­duces wear associated with dou­ble zip pulls. Sec­ond is an ul­tra-thin ti­ta­nium layer bonded to the polypropy­lene com­pos­ite shell that cre­ates a re­mark­ably lightweight, shock ab­sorbent case. The fi­nal break­through is the place­ment of the an­odised alu­minium ex­tend­able cane from in­side to the out­side, adding both pack­ing space and strength to the trunk.

The façade of the trunk is as im­pres­sive as its in­te­ri­ors, with the iconic Louis Vuit­ton Mono­gram can­vas de­signed to be al­most 50 per cent lighter. Ar­dent ad­mir­ers of the French house’s his­toric trunks will be pleased with the sim­i­larly de­signed cor­ners and han­dles cov­ered in nat­u­ral cowhide leather. These rev­o­lu­tion­ary trunks are also avail­able in Mono­gram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather, nat­u­ral cowhide leather and a rain­bow of Epi leather hues that come in two cabin sizes of 50 (50 x 35 x 20 cm) and 55 (55 x 39 x 21 cm).
