About the project
"Luggage, in addition to being built to hold our most essential items, often holds another, rarer thing: the possibility of pleasure and adventure. A trunk by Louis Vuitton, timeless in its aesthetic and enduring in its construction, can be the only travel companion a jetsetter might need - as faithful and as elegant as it was when it was first designed two centuries ago, it can see you from Toronto through to Timbuktu, from Paris to Peru, and home again in style. Based on one of my original sculptures that depicts an exaggerated, abstracted human figure, the concept for 'Travel Companion' is intended to draw focus on the relationship between the inveterate traveller and their luggage, the two presented together in a mutually-supportive embrace.For two hundred years, the Louis Vuitton trunk has been the traveller’s best friend, a masterpiece of both design and engineering. No globetrotter with an eye for the refined could ask for more."
