"Breakfast in the Desert" Trunk

This is truly a Tuesday Trunk Tidbitz day. I thought the Cake Trunk was cool enough. Apparently, a Chinese gentleman has commissioned from Asnieres, which will produce anything within reason, a "Breakfast in the Desert" Trunk . The client "wanted to be able to watch television and offer coffee to his friends wherever he traveled in the world, including the remotest desert," LV's Patrick-Louis Vuitton recounts. "We agreed to put two solar panels linked to a battery for the flat-screen TV and DVD player, two-way radio, tuner and coffee machine." The trunk is covered in Damier Ebene with the usual red lining. Interestingly enough, at last night's Met Costume Institute Gala, Marc Jacobs was quoted as saying that luxurious trunks are not likely to make a comeback. "I don't think there's anything practical about travelling with a trunk," Jacobs said. "Luxury travel is traveling with a toothbrush. That's it, end of story. The people who really live luxurious lives don't need to pack. They've got stuff wherever they go." Well said, MJ. Source: luxist.com
