The Louis Vuitton trunk is famous for being the world’s most popular travel trunk or luggages it also can be called. But how did it all start? They were tailored for strength and lightness, thus they were ergonomically designed.
What Made Them Stand Out
Back then, in 1854, luggage used to be shaped round, but Louis Vuitton made his bags rectangular in order to make the placement more convenient for his privileged customers. The market demanded this sort of style when travelling started to become even more popular when it was made easy to go travelling by train or boat.
The Classic Turned Icon
The classic vertical wardrobe luggage came into life 1875 and put a new definition to Parisian chic. There was no need to only pack the bare minimum back then, Louis Vuitton revolutionized the luggage industry by allowing his customers to almost pack their entire wardrobe in just one luggage.
Louis Vuitton became famous for his bespoke trunks and different luggages. His customers were able to decide on the material they wanted as well as on linings, curvings, suppleness and drawers. One wardrobe takes around 150 hours to finish, but a bespoke one can take until 6-8 months.
The Old Man and The Trunk
LV adjusted their luggages to the market’s demands. In the beginning of the 20th century, people started to realize that everything could travel, not only clothes but books as well as champagne bottles. One bespoke article that has become especially renowned is the book case for Ernest Hemmingway.
