Louis Vuitton’s Ultimate Carry-on Bag & Travel Essentials
You probably know that Louis Vuitton is known for their exceptional quality travel and luggage lines. But frequent traveler Lisa Armstrong, fashion editor for the Times of London, still dreamt of her ideal carry-on bag, packed with all of the essentials and comforts for her travels.
After bringing up the idea of this “perfect” bag in December 2006, Louis Vuitton, CLIC Sargent (a children’s cancer and leukemia charity), and Armstrong got together to start work on the project.
The final result is a carry-on that is modeled after the Louis Vuitton Eole bag shape. This bag features the classic monogram canvas and an interior lined with the finest purple/violet calfskin leather.
Inside the bag, custom Louis Vuitton travel essentials include:
- Matching Canvas Monogram Passport Cover
- Rolling Wheels and Pulling Handle
- Cashmere Travel Blanket and Eye Cover
- Laptop Case
- Detachable Toiletries Kit
- Storage for Jewelry and Valuables
- Evening Clutch
- Laundry Pouch
Sadly this bag is a one-of-a-kind creation that is going up for auction in London, with all proceeds going to the CLIC Sargent charity. Starting price is set at $20,448 USD. Auction ends on December 18th.
