Louis Vuitton and the 150th Anniversary of the Red Cross

Louis Vuitton celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Red Cross by commisioning six designers and artists to create six distinctive luggage pieces. They are illustrious photographer Annie Leibovitz, British artist Damien Hirst, head of LV SO, Patrick-Louis Vuitton, Master Chef, Ferran Adria ; Oscar-winning musician Gustavo Santaolalla and of course the Marc Jacobs . Every designer has created a special and practical suitcase according to personal occupation and interest. Annie designed a camera case, backpack and shoulder bag; Damien, a tall black trunk with trays to hold surgical instruments (tools for his artwork); Patrick-Louis a trunk to hold paints and brushes; Ferran a roller bag, Gustavo an instrument case and sweet darling Marc, a trunk made for his two pet dogs complete with pet bowls and a place to store his clothes and a photo of himself so that they wouldn't go LVoesick. The pieces will be auctioned by Sotheby's in London on November 17. Special thanks to SL for sharing this info and for the photos.
