Louis Vuitton luggage is the star of the new Wes Anderson movie. The Darjeeling Limited revolves around three brothers’ journey through India carrying their dead father’s luggage. Luggage that is designed by Jacobs for Louis Vuitton! The monogrammed steamer trunks, duffels, and suitcases play an integral role in the film and were specially designed by Vuitton using aged calfskin, velvet lining, and a jungle pattern created by Anderson’s brother, Eric. The brothers played by Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and Adrien Brody also wear Vuitton-designed suits throughout the film.
The luggage will be auctioned off with proceeds going to benefit UNICEF and the Rawal Mallinathji Foundation, a medical treatment charity in India. If you live in NY or happen to visit it then take a look at this collection that is on display (for a short period) at the Louis Vuitton store there. You can enter a silent bid for the pieces there.
