Space Invaders of the Louis Vuitton Kind: Malle Mars Trunk

"One small step for man, one giant leap for leather goods", says the press kit. July 20 marks the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11’s first lunar landing, and to commemorate, Louis Vuitton has created an out of this world “Malle Mars” Trunk designed for a trip to guess where?...Mars! The aerodynamic trunk, which LVooks like a large egg worthy of Spock, opens up to unveil compartments for our necessities in outer space...drawers galore and shelves for our dishes plus a fold-out chair so we could sit back and relax as we take in the views of Mother Earth from the stars. The trunk, as well as other NASA photographs, space toys, sculptures and astronomy photos, will be on view this Monday, when Louis Vuitton is celebrating the lunar landing’s anniversary with a party at the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History. Vuitton North America president and chief executive officer Daniel Lalonde is playing host with Buzz Aldrin, Jim Lovell and Sally Ride — the history-making astronauts who star in the company’s new core values campaign. For the occasion, Vuitton is donating an undisclosed sum to Al Gore’s Climate Project, and sales of the travel collection at the Fifth Avenue flagship from July 13 to 20 will benefit the organization. I think this is when they would be releasing the Speedy Miroir 35 that I was talking about several days ago. Hmmm...I wonder if Marc could design a spacesuit just pour moi. Special thanks to my Source! LVoe it!!!

  1. mmmmm i am a bit concerned about the direction louis vuitton is heading gone have the days of a family owned company i mean the quality is still there but sadly it is not about the love for refined accessories and travel goods but more about the dollar signs in Bernard arnault's eyes fair enough the people that make and co design these bags with lv are creative geniuses and have a true love for designing these luxury goods but sadly i think things could be a lot more traditional with such an old luxury goods house i understand that lv has to keep up with every one else but really a malle mars trunk i am just not sure
    sorry if i have offended any one but its just my two cense feel free to elaborate or explain
