Luxury Luggage Introduction

“It is very distinctive, it is very stylish – it is very Louis Vuitton… wherever you go in the world you will see people carrying the distinctive Louis Vuitton logo… whether it is a little bag or a huge suitcase.  It talks of distinction and taste” – Cherie Blair at the London Louis Vuitton New Bond Street Maison Opening.

“I think it is an amazing brand, I love that it has got such a heritage and it has been around for such a long time.  I particularly like their luggage and all the trunks”  - Alexa Chung at the London Louis Vuitton New Bond Street Maison Opening.

“My favorite things are the old suitcases, the classic luggage” –  Gwyneth Paltrow at the London Louis Vuitton New Bond Street Maison Opening.

Nothing says class more than quality luxury luggage.  Louis Vuitton famously ran the advertising by-line “show me your luggage, and I’ll tell you who you are.”  In this modern age of mass production there are only two brands which tick the box in my book.  Those brands are Louis Vuitton and Goyard.  Both brands are French and were founded at approximately the same time (1854 for Louis Vuitton and 1853 for Goyard).

The best pieces to own are the hard-sided trunks and suitcases.  These items are made the old fashion way – by skilled artisans much the same way as originally intended.  Trunks are the large boxes used for sea voyages and months away from home.  Trunks today are mainly for ornamental purposes.  Hard-sided suitcases are the most useful items to have.  They can be used for ornamental purposes but still have a use for modern travel.  Famous fans of hard-sided suitcases include Joan Collins, Madonna and Sir Elton John.  Recently on eBay three of Sir Elton John’s Louis Vuitton hard case suitcases were offered for auction.  It is fascinating that these are the best quality suitcases in the world and they are obtainable (yet still very expensive). 

Quality luggage is an heirloom that will last a lifetime and will always bring pleasure in its usage.  Care should be taken on commercial flights as many expensive suitcases have been deliberately damaged by jealous workers. Recently Louis Vuitton has offered there hard-sided suitcases with a strong black cover.  This adds a layer of protection whilst also provided a degree of discretion.

Louis Vuitton is probably the most famous maker of beautiful luggage in the world.  Classic suitcases from Louis Vuitton include the Alzer, Bisten, Cotteville and Braken.  Louis Vuitton also has a range of other hard-sided items to go together with the suitcases including the President Classeur briefcase, Boite Pharmacie cosmetic case and Boite Bijoux Jewellery case.  Louis Vuitton offers these products in a range of colors/patterns including Monogram, Damier, Epi and Taiga.

The Monogram range is probably the most recognizable line whilst Epi and Taiga lines provide a degree of discretion.  I personally have a mix match of colors/patterns to match my mood.
