A peek inside Lane Crawford x Christie’s exclusive Louis Vuitton trunks collection showcase

·3-min read

Lane Crawford has partnered with British auction house Christie’s to present a collection of rare and exclusive Louis Vuitton trunks, available to check out at Lane Crawford ifc mall in Hong Kong from today until 13 May.

Oh, how we love Louis Vuitton trunks — monogrammed canvas on sturdy constructions, subtle yet confident in showing off their bespoke craftsmanship and prestigious heritage.

The luggage-atelier-turned-fashion-powerhouse’s legacy creations are among some of the most coveted collectibles in the contemporary era, and rightfully so. From staying true to understated classic palettes to crossing paths with Supreme and Jeffree Star (love him or hate him, having an LV monogram shade to call your own is an achievement in itself), Louis Vuitton breaks no sweat in capturing the hearts of generations.

In light of Christie’s Handbags and Accessories Spring and Autumn live auction on 23 May, Lane Crawford is presenting an exclusive preview of all Louis Vuitton trunks on offer at their ifc mall location. Undoubtedly unique, this phenomenal collection is acquired by a Japanese private collector over the span of 25 years, amassing monumental pieces such as the FIFA World Cup trunk and special orders such as the night picnic monogram trunk with telescope. Go have an in-depth look at these masterpieces from now until 13 May: even if you don’t bid later, the images in your mind are free to cherish forever.
