Louis Vuitton debuts limited edition collection of outrageously impractical travel objects
The Stool designed by Atelier Oi is part of the Louis Vuitton collection Designer's Wanderlust. Louis Vuitton / louisvuitton.com
Granted the objects are supposed to be more travel-inspired than travel-hardy, LV will never have a more rapt audience than the modish consumers at the premiere’s location at Art Basel in Miami.
Excerpt from New York Times
Louis Vuitton didn’t become a successful purveyor of travel goods by sitting on its thumbs. Over the years, the company, which was founded in 1854, has invented steamer trunks that convert into beds and a padlock that it challenged Houdini to pick.
Vuitton is recalling the adventurous spirit of those designs with Objets Nomades, a collection that was presented in the Miami Design District on Tuesday and will remain on view through Sunday.
