For Sale: Vintage Vuitton

03/08/2010 § Leave a comment

Got a few thousand dollars to burn?  Love vintage luggage?  On 28 September, Christie’s London will be auctioning off several pieces of vintage Louis Vuitton luggage during its Interiors: Style & Spirit sale.  Dating from the late nineteenth century through the 1940s, several of these well-traveled pieces still bear the marks of their former owners and mementos from the places they have been.

The traditional hand painted initials and distinctive stripes are the inspiration for the recently revived Mon Monogram service offered by Louis Vuitton.  For those who find themselves without an amazing vintage luggage collection to add to, you now have the opportunity to start with a fresh piece and create the “vintage” all on your own.

Bon voyage!
