July 20, the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11’s first lunar landing has not only created quite a stir among the lunar pioneers, but has also inspired the watch makers and designers to contemplate on new themes. Latest to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11’s lunar landing is Louis Vuitton’s custom order “Malle Mars” aerodynamic trunk designed to look like a widget out of a Star Trek arena. You want to know what’s inside? The large, egg-like dome opens up to unveil compartments for all kinds of space necessities such as tools, pharmaceutical drawers, dishwasher shelves, and a folding chair to take in the views of the earth.
The Martian trunk and a bunch of NASA photographs, space toys, sculptures and astronomy photos will be put up on Monday, when Louis Vuitton will be celebrating the occasion with a party at the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History.
