Louis Vuitton launches the Monogram World Tour Collection that renders its iconic pieces into key travel essentials this holiday.
We get it: the wanderlust becomes stronger as the holiday season draws nearer. Your desire to breathe the air of a distant country has never burnt fiercer, you crave to uncover the untold stories of your adventures, and to pull your memory-filled luggage across platforms. If you find yourself regularly hypnotised by the life of a traveller (or holiday-er, just like we do), expect no less from the Louis Vuitton Monogram World Tour Collection. The latest holiday collection brings you a delightful take on the art of travel through the new 2016 sticker prints on its iconic models.
Nicolas Ghesquiere ventured into the travel archives of Gaston-Louis Vuitton and put a playful spin on Gaston’s treasured collection of trunk labels and stickers from around the world. These trunk labels and stickers are reimagined and decorated onto the House’s representative bag and accessory pieces, such as the Speedy, Petite Malle, Fifty Five timepieces and more. The new 2016 stickers also illustrated the greatest cosmopolitan cities and paintings from the Hyperreality movement that speaks of the seamless blend of fictional endings and beginnings — similar to how we’d perceive our travels to be.
Louis Vuitton Pégase Suitcase Monogram World Tour, Speedy Monogram World Tour
Our picks? The Maison’s classic Pégase suitcase in its newest rendition certainly looks more “travel-essential” than ever — nothing like a Louis Vuitton logo sticker and a pair of pop-art worthy flamingoes to add on to the vibrant buoyancy of the holiday collection piece.
As though the perfect city bag has transformed into Gaston’s trunk, Speedy Monogram World Tour brings back the unique fashion of travel documentation in the form of ticket stubs and cool labels — a beautiful reminder of the places we have been to, and the adventures we will go on this holiday.
The Monogram World Tour Collection is now available at all Louis Vuitton stores.
