Many have expressed their wish to “live out of a suitcase” but French hairdresser John Nollet might be the first to work out of one! Boasting a client list that includes the who’s who of Hollywood (Elizabeth Hurley, Vanessa Paradis, Diane Kruger, Kylie Minogue, Uma Thurman and Johnny Depp are just some of the names) John Nollet is the last word in haute hair.
So when Park Hyatt partnered with Louis Vuitton (a few years ago) to present a Tour of the World with “Hair Room Service Around the World” by John Nollet, it was but natural that this hair technician would need a home for his elaborate set of tools.
Louis Vuitton stepped in to provide custom versions of their iconic luggage trunks produced by Les ateliers d’Asnières. The design process alone took a year and Nollet worked with one hundred artisans to customize his dream work box.
Together, the trunks are nothing short of a portable salon. The exterior is crafted in familiar monogram canvas with a black leather trim while the inside is clad in a vivid, festive red with black details.
The trunks boast a wealth of compartments and drawers designed especially to store Nollets hair accessories and tools.
“I was working with these amazing people who are working in Asnieres, the place where special ordered pieces are made. 100 artisans, more special than the next, [worked there]. Unbelievable you can’t imagine. It’s amazing. I couldn’t speak,” Nollet told the Covateur.
The beautiful trunk makes a truly luxe workspace for the hairstylist who has now set up base at the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme in Suite 101. We know we would be way more productive if we could work out of custom LV Trunks!
