Frequent flyers know a first-class suitcase is the cornerstone of airport style. Most turn to Louis Vuitton, the pinnacle of luxury luggage since the 19th century. The house has continuously updated the classic silhouette, making it both trendsetting and functional for the modern globe-trotter. Following a successful hard-case collaboration in 2016, Marc Newson is back with the Horizon soft collection—primed to make any seasoned traveler swoon. He has custom-designed every inch, using only the most innovative materials. The 3D knit outer shell—with Newson’s own interpretation of the iconic LV monogram—is lightweight and water-resistant, and the production process was tailored exclusively for Louis Vuitton, featuring technical yarn, seamless knitting and heat formation. Awkward bumps and ridges have been removed for increased packing space, while an ergonomic TSA-approved lock can be opened with one hand. What truly makes these pieces unique is Newson’s personal touch. He designed them based on his own flying experiences and understands the practical needs of luggage. A suitcase from Louis Vuitton is already one of the most covetable fashion items. Now, with the ingenious twists of Horizon, you’ll be the most envied passenger during takeoff.
