When a leading automaker teams up with a luxury fashion brand, great things are bound to happen. So when BMW decided to add a little bit of French glamour to its German engineering, they looked to Louis Vuitton to create a line of tailor-made luggage for their new i8 model.
The resulting bags and cases are made entirely from the carbon fiber, a high-tech, lightweight, yet extremely sturdy material. The collection consists of two travel bags, a business case and a garment bag. All of these elegant pieces feature the iconic checkered Damier patter, leather name tags and a laser-etched Louis Vuitton signature.
All the items are designed to fit perfectly into the interior of the BMW i8. The 4.750 Euro ($6,555) Weekender GM i8, for instance, with both hand and shoulder carry straps, is meant to go into the car’s boot. The 4.450 Euro ($6,280) Business Case i8, great for carrying laptops, matches the shape of the rear seats, while the Weekender PM i8 is designed to rest on its surface.
The collection will be available upon request starting April 1st in a selection of Louis Vuitton stores around the world (Munich, Milan, London, Paris, Moscow, Dubai, New York, Los Angeles).
