Louis Vuitton will unveil Hong Kong’s first Hard-Sided Pop-Up at Gateway Arcade in Harbour City. It will be opened from May 1st until May 13th 2018 where visitors and clients can discover the art of trunk-making which up to today is fine-tuned to each individual’s specific requirements.
Since 1859, the workshop in Asnières has been the stronghold of Louis Vuitton’s trunk-making tradition, giving birth to an astonishing array of custom-made luggage and hard-sided trunks. The work is now carried out in the time-honored ways with tools that have hardly changed and only a precious few craftsmen possess the mastery needed to execute special orders. They ensure that Louis Vuitton’s cases are a perfect fit for the goods they protect – be they bottles of champagne or perfume, board games or make-up, jewellery or grooming tools.
The Pop-Up will showcase a variety of hard-sided trunks and cases for men and women. Besides the iconic products such as the Wardrobe trunk and hard-sided suitcases, other special trunks – which have been created for the lifestyles of its clients – will also be displayed. For the fashion-savvy, they can also view the Petite Malle, rendered in the season’s animations. First launched in Fall-Winter 2014 by Nicolas Ghesquière, the Petite Malle has become one of the House’s most recognizable signatures.
A painter will be on hand at the venue to demonstrate the art of trunk painting and to highlight the personalization options available to clients.
