About the project
"This is Los Angeles. The car is king of the city - a city of freeways, dreams and freedom. When I was young, my father wanted to move our family from a small rural town in the United Kingdom to Los Angeles, California. He had a job opportunity to work as a stage technician in one of the big film studios. After his interview, he returned with Super 8 footage he shot, and that weekend we sat in our living room in awe. We saw the Hollywood sign, giant boulevards, neon lights, Disneyland, Venice Beach. But what I really remember were cars. Not ordinary cars, but cars of chrome and metallic candy paint, cars that bounced and hopped. Dropped to the ground as low as they could go. This was America for me - and I wanted so much to live there. My mother, so conservative in her outlook, wished for us to stay in England, so it took me 22 more years before I finally made it to America, where I now reside with my family. Los Angeles is a cultural melting pot. There’s nowhere else that has given me opportunities to work and collaborate with such a broad and culturally-diverse people. For our trunk, Be Good Studios pays homage to Luis Vuitton's spirit of invention and travel. To the communities that make our city. To car culture and the childhood dreams in us all.
