Still travelling. Retracing the Trunk

Louis Vuitton Presents Retracing the Trunk

Hundreds of thousands of luxury trunks have been handmade by Louis Vuitton since the 19th century. They all have their own history. The are scattered through the four corners of the globe. Some sleep in attics, others are in museums, others are still travelling. As Patrick-Louis Vuitton said “once wide open, they are no longer trunks but albums.”

Louis Vuitton celebrates its savoir-faire through light projection and mapping techniques. The short film by Les Courtisans immerses us in the visual history of the prestigious trunk-maker jumping back and forth between the many designs developed by the house throughout the years; Each trunk tells its story through a graphic explosion at crossroads between the late 19th and early 21st century.
