The Wes Anderson movie, Darjeeling Limited has been panned in its reviews but thats not the point, is it? The point you ask? But of course, the Louis Vuitton luggage. The movie revolves around three brothers’ journey through India carrying their dead father’s luggage! Louis Vuitton luggage that is. Designed by Jacobs for Vuitton using aged calfskin, velvet lining and a special jungle pattern (the pattern created by Anderson’s brother)!
The luggage was on display at the New York LV store for a limited time and was auctioned off, the proceeds of which went onto benefit UNICEF and the Rawal Mallinathji Foundation, a medical treatment charity in India!
