The car of the future needs luggage to match: To mark BMW’s new i8 rechargeable hybrid sports vehicle Louis Vuitton has teamed up with the luxury car manufacturer to create “luggage of the future.” The four piece set is tailor made for the futuristic vehicle and features two weekender bags, a garment bag, and hardshell business case. Crafted from woven charcoal-gray carbon fiber fabric in the iconic Vuitton Daimer check, the pieces are laminated inside with an electric blue coating to match the i8’s electric blue hue. Attention to detail is shown with a specially designed handle, leather address tag and signature padlock. All four pieces are designed to fit seamlessly in the car’s interior.
These understated luxury pieces, described as- “a pure expression of the art of travel,” by Patrick-Louis Vuitton, head of special orders for the brand- are available upon request at Louis Vuitton boutiques worldwide from April 1.
