  11. So understand you! I just had a convo with the hubs and fam on Mother's day about LV luggage. He asked what's the point? What's the point? LV started as luggage, and look how incredible the vintage ones look on display?! For sure he will be shown this post!

  13. Definitely a need! We did an upstairs/downstairs tour in one of the Newport mansions, and they had a whole room of LV luggage, including the huge wardrobes they took for their European vacations. Swoon-worthy!

  19. My parents bought me a trunk when I was a teenager (obviously not a LV one!) I so wish I'd taken better care of it, it's all beaten up now and sits in my storage area in my basement.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I disagree -- a vintage LV suitcase is a NEED! I am desperate for one :)

  32. The classic LV trunk. Short story...Years ago I took a weekend trip to the seaside coast of Cornwall (UK), anyway part of the fun of mini road trips for me is stopping at all the little antique and secondhand shops along the way. Well, I found a particularly old smelly one that had so much useless junk I wondered how it ever got any business. Just as I was about to leave I saw what appeared to be a trunk under piles and piles of tatty magazines. On closer inspection it was a vintage LV trunk in lovely vintage condition. The crazy old fella who owned the shop had been using it to house magazines and newspapers. I said I wanted it and he made a big deal out of having to find something else to stash his stuff so I offered him £30 (approx $50) on the spot and he took it. Since then I have been the proud owner of my very own classic LV trunk! Love Xx

  33. "Want," "need," what's the difference? Louis trunks are alltime, absolute classics and a MUST on every girl's wishlist -- or shopping list! :)
    So glad you came over for it led me to your beautiful blog!!

  35. Really nothing more classic than an LV trunk. The older and more beat-up, the better.

  36. Am in love with thiose cases. The Blakes Hotel in London has quite a few of these darlings at the bar. I go there just to place my drinks on them;-)

  37. You'd always have that wonderful homecoming traveller feeling. I haven't bought any leather suitcases or trunks because of boring practical considerations, but as a coffee-table surely I could have one of these: http://www.globe-trotterltd.com/main.html ?

  47. Oh, Vuitton! French god of suitcases and other lovely items to carry along. Hear my prayer...
    Let me find a wonderfully old dusty trunk in one of those old second hand places and nobody has any clue!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Before I finished reading I said to myself, this is a want for Sue, if it was CC it would be a need!

    ReplyDelete
  49. It does seem that want and need are one in this case. I think you must have Louis!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Want.. need.. they're interchangeable at this point! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I've never owned LV, but these are so beautiful and useful too. I think if you want it, you should have it! Surely you have a birthday coming up?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I adore the idea of encasing a vintage trunk in a lucite box for a coffee table. It would be great in a smaller version for accent tables as well. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. There is one item I have to buy (one day) and it is indeed the LV trunk and the wardrobe.

    ReplyDelete
  54. OMG!! I NEED an LV vintage trunk for a table:) My, my wouldn't it be nice to buy something like that and not have to worry about how much it costs? Like they say if you have to ask haw much, you can't afford it. I'll just have to dream about one or just keep coming back to this post to drool! Thanks for sharing such a marvelous post :)

  55. I would like to have one of these LV luggages, someday.... :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yes the classic LV is always desirable. I was lucky enough to be able to buy a weekend bag and matching handbag some 15 years ago (in Rome). I still love them and find them getting more and more beautiful as time passes.
