Louis Vuitton's Home

While I was in Paris during fashion week, I traveled off to Asnières-sur-Seine (around 40 minutes from Central Paris) to visit the Louis Vuitton special order workshop as well as the actual home Mr. Louis Vuitton and his family lived in between 1880 and the 70s. It felt slightly surreal to be walking amongst the homely grounds of the first modern trunk maker, where ideas of waterproofing the canvas or coming up with the Damier print manifested from. The interior furniture was a mixture of pieces from the art nouveau and deco period. Floral motif-ed decors, mint colored walls and ceilings, oriental desks, deco tea sets, and endearing photos of Mr. Louis Vuitton and his friends and family. The home was cozy, warm, and tastefully filled with remnants from Vuitton's many voyages. Then came the archives of different types of trunks that were designed for high profiled clienteles that specifically carried items like mini-closets, sport equipments, cigars, wine bottles, or in one odd 'case' a portable bed. I could go on the list out the fun facts about the special ordered trunks, but since those information can be found elsewhere on the internet, I'd just end this by stating that even a slight anti-monogram person like myself (blame it on being raised in Hong Kong seeing knock-offs on a daily basis), it's hard not to possess a growing appreciation of the process and meticulousness involved in making a trunk. I'm highly tempted to put in a special order one of these days...
