Louis Vuitton Monogram Eclipse: Travel With Horizon

IMAGE: JSK FOR LOUIS VUITTON

The Horizon, also known as the luxurious rolling luggage designed by Marc Newson for Louis Vuitton, is quite simply a sight to behold inMonogram Eclipse. Basically the Black/Grey rendition of Monogram Canvas(you would know this if you’ve read the first and second posts of this series), you could say it has come full circle as far the Horizon is concerned.

In honour of his late father Louis Vuitton, who started the business making travelling trunks for the crème de la crème of society, Georges Vuitton created and dedicated the Monogram Canvas pattern to him all those years ago. Today, it continues to adorn the luggage pieces of modern travellers, with this being one of them.

Only available in size 55 as far as the Horizon in Monogram Eclipse is concerned, it’s only an ultra-light piece of the luggage, the SGD4250luggage measuring some 55 cm by 39 cm by 21 cm is also the ideal carry-on size for most airlines. Framed by a cane handle that tucks away completely when not in use, the larger than normal handle isn’t big just from a design perspective, it also allows for eased manoeuvrability. And with the 4 compact wheels at the bottom, moving from point to point within the airport (even if you’re in hurry and with a full luggage) would be easy.

On the inside you’ll find generous compartments that are also flat, which is possible only because the cane handle is positioned at the sides and not in the middle like most other four-wheeled luggages. Finished with a pull zipper closure padlock system that’s also TSA-approved, this is the perfect carry-on for the executive on the go, shuttling from city to city on an almost weekly basis.

For this, and more pieces from the Monogram Eclipse collection, you can follow this link to have a look. Better yet, pop into Louis Vuitton boutiques across the island, including ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Ngee Ann City to see how tradition and modernity have combined to culminate in the most beautiful effect.

Louis Vuitton has launched an innovative new line of rolling trunks for the 21st century traveler. Imagined by Marc Newson, widely acknowledged as the most influential industrial designer of his generation, the Horizon collection optimizes travel with sophistication and flare. 

Harking back to the original trunks, Horizon is the first four-wheeled case with a completely flat back shell which allows for optimized space. Every detail from the new line exudes innovation and lightness – from the new discreet TSA-approved lock to the most comfortable wheels ever designed by Louis Vuitton, the new trunks are on the cutting edge of travel. A range of special accessories have been created to pair with the luggage. All items are available at Aventura Mall at the end of September.

MEET THE FUTURE 001
The trunk comes in three sizes, mini 50 x 35 x 20 cm, cabin 55 x 39 x 21 cm and maxi 68x 46 x 26 cm.

Louis Vuitton is launching an innovative new range of rolling trunks for the 21st century traveller, designed by Wallpaper* Power Lister and internationally renowned industrial designer Marc Newson.

Its core is moulded as a slim and elastic, shock-proof mesh matrix of self-reinforced polypropylene composite. To achieve the greatest lightness possible, Vuitton’s celebrated Monogram canvas has been slimmed down 50 per cent without compromising its original characteristics.

Unlike most rolling trunks, the extendable cane, engineered in lightweight anodised aluminium, has been relocated to the outside, adding structure and strength and removing bulky bumps and ridges from the interior, allowing for more packing space. A new transversal side hinge is built into the structure of the trunk, and the three-digit combination zip-pull lock system – with a single zipper pull – is designed to reduce weight and avoid the usual stress points of double zip pulls.

The new trunk comes in three sizes: mini (50 x 35 x 20 cm), cabin (55 x 39 x 21 cm) and maxi (68 x 46 x 26 cm). All three sizes are available in the classic Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather and a rainbow of seven colours of Epi leather.

Newson and Vuitton worked rigorously to achieve some impressive stats: 36 litre capacity for the cabin size – an increase in internal volume of 13 per cent compared to a similar sized trunk – and a weight of a mere 2.7kg for the mini version and just 3kg for the cabin size. Development took around 18 months, although frequent flier Newson says he's ‘probably spent 20 years designing these things in my head, long before I knew that I was going to be doing this for Louis Vuitton’.

‘I think it’s safe to say that we’re striving to break new ground in terms of developing a product which is one of the lightest in the market, and from a technical perspective is one of the most rigorously designed and engineered,' explains Newson. 'I’m obsessive about packing everything into a bag of a certain size, which is why it was so important for me to design a product that could tick all of those boxes and be the perfect piece of luggage for a person like me, [who] won’t travel with anything more than is absolutely necessary.'

To accompany the launch, the French maison will offer shoppers who purchase their cases a 48 hour after-sales repair service in 14 global cities, which will also be integrated into the Louis Vuitton travel app.

Louis Vuitton has just launched the “Horizon” collection.  Designed and inspired by Marc Newson, widely acknowledged as one of the most influential industrial designers of his generation, Horizon is “Travel In Style” with a 4-wheeled cabin luggage, which offers surprisingly large interior capacity and feather like lightness.
Exceedingly practical and versatile, Horizon is the first four-wheeled case with a completely flat back shell, of which the storage space inside has been optimised thanks to the ingenious design. The object, whose appearance reveals at first glance a small suitcase in its simplest form, is actually a small jewel of technology. It took no less than eighteen months of development and filing of three patents. Every detail exudes quality, sleek styling and lightness: the discreet, secure lock, the smallest, quietest wheels possible, and a dedicated connected service within the LV Pass app (best addresses in the Louis Vuitton City Guide, personalised after-sales service, care advice, etc.)
Horizon exists in a Cabin size and a mini cabin version; it is available in the famous Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather, in natural cowhide leather and a rainbow of 7 colours of Epi leather.
Marc Newson says “The process of travelling tomorrow could be a little more elegant and a little more seamless and a little more enjoyable.  I think the market has a real need for this type of product, both very technical and very sophisticated from a functional point of view. We set to work and we ended up with a result that has no equivalent on the market.

Travel is an integral part of my life both for work and pleasure. I have been in the market for new carry-on luggage for quite some time now. We have been using the Tumi line for the last couple of years, but packing and planning, especially for longer trips has been somewhat frustrating with my Tumi suitcases. I will explain why in detail now.

Obviously as PurseBop is my life, my laptop is almost always with me. When traveling, easy access to my laptop whether it be for quick removal at TSA or in-flight use is imperative. Now unlike most people that carry a laptop, I choose NOT to physically carry my computer in my hand or personal bag. Illogical…well maybe? But having my laptop in my suitcase makes the most sense for me. I am not leaving home without one of my favorite handbags, and as of late it is either a Birkin or Kelly bag. Since neither my B nor K is going to carry my laptop, it has to go in my carry-on suitcase. My Tumi carry-on does not have an outside pocket, so just imagine my frustration at TSA unzipping the entire suitcase to remove the laptop – or even more of a nightmare, trying to take out the laptop in-flight!

Global Entry/TSA pre-check has taken care of all domestic headaches, but I travel extensively internationally, in which case the TSA pre-check benefits no longer apply. The laptop must be removed and placed in a tray for X-Ray.

Ideally, my carry-on should have an exterior pocket that can accommodate my laptop and enough interior space for either a quick get away/light weekend trip amount of clothing. If I’m taking a longer trip, my carry-on should have enough interior space for all my additional handbags (of course, I make use of my efficient nesting technique (Read: Bag Nesting – How to Travel with Handbags). Since I never check-in any handbags, they must all fit in my carry-on luggage.

Whether I am traveling alone, or with Mr. PurseBop is an important factor that dictates my carry-on contents. If alone, my carry-on must independently meet all my needs. If traveling together with two carry-ons, there’s a little more leeway (which essentially means more space for me, LOL).

The search for a set of new carry-on luggage was on the back burner until the release of the new Louis Vuitton rolling luggage launch. You’ll quickly see why these new LV suitcases excited me!

Starting from the fashion house’s early days, Louis Vuitton was a malletier that produced custom luggage, like their iconic trunk suitcases, for the aristocrats and nobility among Europe. LV continues to live on as a luggage legend with the introduction of their new Rolling Luggage line by Marc Newson.

The Newson Luggage collection is a luxury traveler’s dream come true. Aesthetically, the luggage pieces in this collection are sleeker and more modern than past releases. In terms of functionality though, the New Luggage Collection is by far Louis Vuitton’s most well-designed and well-built set of suitcases to date.

Marc Newson is an influential industrial designer who has played a role in creating everything from furniture, household objects, bicycles, cars, and even commercial aircraft. Newson’s breadth of knowledge about object usefulness and practicality is definitely evident in the Rolling Luggage collection.

Designing the perfect suitcase can be tricky. With a lot of luggage, the extendable handle is often positioned in a way that obstructs the interior of the suitcase, which means some items can’t lay flat and you aren’t truly using your space in the most efficient way possible.

With Newson’s collection, the extendable handle of the suitcase has been relocated to the outside and runs from the bottom to the top of the luggage, which means there are no awkward bumps and ridges in the interior space. This is a 4-wheeled suitcases, which allows for more mobility when walking through the airport.  Other new features include a three-digit combination zip-pull TSA lock system, which reduces weight and causes less tension than a double zip system.

Newson meticulously designed these suitcases to be user friendly, lightweight, and hassle-free.

The new, hard-bodied rolling suitcases, the “Horizon” model,  come in 2 sizes:

  • Mini (50 x 35 x 20 cm)
  • Cabin (55 x 39 x 21 cm)

Available materials include Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather, and Epi leather.

Prices

Suitcase Model Price in USD
Horizon 50 $2,660
Horizon 55 $3,100

Interior of the bag is completely flat to maximize space.

After looking at the pictures of the new suitcases and reading the product descriptions, you can clearly see that there are still no exterior pockets on these suitcases. You may be wondering…wait a minute, PurseBop what’s all the fuss about? Don’t you NEED an exterior pocket? What about your laptop?

Well…even with this dilemma, new LV suitcases did manage to join our luggage collection!

Cheap LV Luggage – Learn How To Stay Away From Bad Replica Luggage!

Travel

I too would love to buy cheap LV luggage pieces if I knew they were reliable but I know better than this. It’s true, you can find affordable fake Louis Vuitton luggage but don’t mistake affordable for cheap.

Cheap LV Luggage - How to stay away from bad replica

A Louis Vuitton luggage set is a really good investment in my opinion because they are the most classic faux designer luggage items and they are also extremely practical and useful. So here are some tips on how to choose the best LV luggage pieces!

Today I’m going to show you some photos of cheap LV luggage you should stay away from. Even those who are not looking for the perfect replica with exact details should think about the fact that when it comes to luggage bags, sturdiness is also an extremely important factor. More than with any other replica bags.

Affordable vs Cheap LV Luggage

The Keepall and the Pegase are not only the most sought-after LV luggage styles but also two of the most popular Louis Vuitton bags replica ever. This means you are going to find a lot of replicas for these bags that vary from very cheap LV luggage to really expensive replicas. It’s really important to learn how to choose the replica Louis Vuitton best prices without sacrificing quality.

You shouldn’t buy Louis Vuitton fake luggage just because it is stylish and a fashion statement recognized worldwide but also for its durability and high functionality. So even though cheap LV luggage may sound like a good idea, be careful! It may look pretty good on the outside but it’s probably not very resistant to wear, which kind of makes it useless. And the worst thing that could happen is for your fake designer luggage to start falling apart while you are traveling and need it more than ever.

If you’re looking for the iconic Pegase rolling suitcase for example, don’t expect it to be among the cheap LV luggage pieces. Just think about how much material and work is needed to get a good replica! And most importantly, this is a piece that should last you for years, not just a season, so like I said, think of it as an investment more than just a fashion whim.

The Keepall on the other hand could be considered one of the cheap LV luggage items. Compared to the Pegase, at least. The Keepall is the most iconic and timeless Louis Vuitton carry on luggage and the perfect travel companion, great for women and men alike. Plus, it comes in a variety of sizes and materials, so you can choose the most convenient for your own needs. Since this bag is also an all-time celebrity favorite, you really don’t want your Keepall to look cheap and fake!

In case you were wondering how cheap LV luggage pieces look like, I’ve selected some photos for you. There are many things you need to check to see if your Louis Vuitton Keepall replica is one of the good ones or not: the canvas, the leather trims, the leather tag, the stitching, the hardware engravings and the interior are all important pieces in this puzzle.

The Canvas

Look at this replica Louis Vuitton Keepall in Monogram Canvas and this one made of Damier Graphite for example. The canvas is obviously of poor quality and it’s almost as thin as paper! So how long do you think these bags would last?

The Stamps

When you’re buying really cheap LV luggage, this is what you get. These stamps are terrible! In my opinion it’s better to buy no-name luggage pieces than poorly made Louis Vuitton luggage fake items you’ll be ashamed to wear.

The Stitching

This is a major fake giveaway right here. Not only is the shape of the leather tag wrong, but the stamp is horrible and the stitching is not V-shaped like the original. Please note that not all Keepall bags feature this V-shaped leather tag with yellow stitching. You will also find this signature feature in the Speedy bags.

The Interior

Even though Louis Vuitton is not using a luxurious material to line its luggage pieces, it’s still important that the lining is at least the same color as the original. So make sure you check that too.

LV replica bags made of canvas are usually cheaper than replica bags made of leather, so it’s really not impossible to find good replica LV luggage at good prices. But just don’t expect a good LV replica Pegase to cost 100 bucks because that’s not going to happen…

This is not a how to spot fake Louis Vuitton luggage guide but rather a how to stay away from bad replica LV luggage guide. If you have any other questions about a particular LV luggage piece or you are trying to find out where to find the best LV replica, I’m here to help!

THE LOUIS VUITTON PALM SPRINGS BACKPACK PM

Travel

Satisfying a thriving interest in monogram products while courting higher-end consumers with more expensive and exclusive leather options is a difficult balancing act, and it’s not one that Louis Vuitton has always pulled off perfectly. The brand has made strides in its leather game under the creative direction of Nicolas Ghesquiere, though, and now that monograms feel trendy again, LV has debuted at least one bag that I’m betting will capitalize on the increased interest: the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack PM.

Taking the ubiquitous LV monogram and making it feel fresh without changing it significantly is a tall order, but it’s something this design accomplishes. Stripping it of the beige vachetta leather trim that most of LV’s monograms sport helps a lot; the black leather feels luxe and sporty simultaneously, which is a combination that’s huge in seasonal fashion right now and makes the monogram feel current by association. The casual, simple backpack shape is also important, and both it and the trim remove the print from its traditional, somewhat stuffy original context. It’s a monogram bag that can appeal to consumers who weren’t old enough to buy designer bags last time monograms were cool.

The bag is part of the brand’s current Cruise 2016 collection, and we’ve already spotted it on the arms of Chiara Ferragni and Kylie Jenner, who are exactly the type young, high-profile women who can introduce Vuitton to a new group of potential customers. For my part, it’s the only Louis Vuitton bag I’ve felt drawn to in recent memory, as well as the only one I’ve thought might make sense with my own personal style. That’s not exactly a tiny shift for someone like me, who doesn’t gravitate toward logos at all.

The bag is also well-positioned in Louis Vuitton’s price structure for it to make maximum impact: at $1,650, it hits a full-on luxury price point without being as astronomically unobtainable as the brand’s leather options. The Palm Springs is a very smart addition to the brand’s lineup, and I’d love to make it an addition to my closet.

Louis Vuitton Remained the World’s Most Valuable Luxury Brand in 2014

Travel

Louis-Vuitton-Fall-2015-Handbags-27

Louis Vuitton has changed a lot over the past couple of years, and by the numbers, the shifts in strategy are starting to look like they’re working. According to research firm Millward Brown, Vuitton held onto its spot as the world’s most valuable luxury brand in 2014, and it was one of only two that gained value.

Every year, the Millward Brown BrandZ Study looks at metrics like corporate earnings and consumer attitudes for global brands in a variety of categories and assess how they’re performing, both relative to their competition and their own previous valuations. This year, of the luxury brands measured, only Louis Vuitton and Chanel gained value; LV rose 6% to $27.4 billion and the top spot on the luxury list, while Chanel grew 15% to a $9 billion valuation, which brought the French powerhouse in at fourth worldwide. Louis Vuitton has been ranked first in luxury for ten years running.

According to Bloomberg Business, Millward Brown analyst Elspeth Cheung attributes both Louis Vuitton’s and Chanel’s increasing value to recent strategy changes; Louis Vuitton’s revitalization is working, and Chanel’s price harmonization across markets has encouraged in-store consumption.

On the whole, though, luxury brands did not fare so well in 2014. The second and third place companies (Hermès and Gucci, respectively) each saw valuation decreases, and even in the top ten, the category was down an average of 6%.

As a consumer, do these findings reflect your perceptions of the brands in question?
