Bespoke luggage probably adds $20k to the price of the car.
French fashion house Louis Vuitton has created a tailor-made set of luggage for the BMW i8 comprised of two travel bags, a business case and garment bag that fit snuggly into the plug-in hybrid’s interior. Made entirely from carbon fiber, LV’s signature checkered Damier pattern and laser-etched Louis Vuitton logo adorn the luggage range, while the i8’s trademark brand colors of black and electric blue feature in the microfiber lining.
The Weekender bag fits in the trunk, the garment bag is a perfect fit for the rear shelf, while the business case matches the shape of the i8’s rear seats. Patrick-Louis-Vuitton, Head of Special Orders at Louis Vuitton and great grandson of the House’s founder, says, “This collaboration with BMW i epitomises our shared values of creativity, technological innovation and style. Our craftsmen at Louis Vuitton have enjoyed the challenge of this very special project, using their ingenuity and attention to detail to create a truly made to measure set of luxury luggage. This is a pure expression of the art of travel.” The Louis Vuitton luggage series will be available upon request at select stores from April 1.
