Why You Need It
Louis Vuitton began specializing in “packing fashions” in 1854, when he introduced stackable flattop trunks made of light and water-resistant canvas. Today, his namesake company defines luxury in luggage and handbags. Louis Vuitton’s quality and craftsmanship are the industry standard, and the travel fashion powerhouse sets the style with its signature monogram and impeccable attention to detail.
Why It’s Special
The LV monogram stands as much for sophistication and status as it does the founder’s name. Individual pieces cost several thousand U.S. dollars each and multiple-piece sets run in the tens of thousands. Additionally, Louis Vuitton operates a special-order workshop outside Paris that produces custom pieces designed to hold everything from holiday ornaments and sports equipment to dolls and silverware.
What It Costs
A 10-piece Louis Vuitton luggage set, complete with three trunks, four suitcases and three handbags, retails for US$60,134/€44,037. For more information, visit louisvuitton.com.
