Louis Vuitton creates tailor-made luggage for the BMW i8

Bound to appeal to the wealthier purchasers of BMW’s hybrid i8 sports car, world famous luggage experts Louis Vuitton have created a tailor-made set of luggage solutions for the discerning owner.

Interestingly, the material they’ve used to make the luggage is no stranger to the i8’s construction itself; carbon fibre. This particularly lightweight yet extremely sturdy high-tech material has been used by Louis Vuitton to create a special textile. It provides great robustness and strength, and as such is made for the rigours of travel – no matter how long and arduous the drive.

The exclusive luggage pieces are designed to fit snugly into various areas within the BMW i8. The Weekender GM i8, with both hand and shoulder carry straps, is custom-designed to go in the boot, while the Garment Bag i8 is a perfect fit for the rear shelf of the BMW i8. The sturdy hardshell Business Case i8 which is also ideal for carrying laptops, matches the shape of the rear seats; while the small Weekender PM i8 is designed to rest on its surface.

The Louis Vuitton luggage series will be available upon request in a selection of Louis Vuitton stores worldwide (Munich, Milan, London, Paris, Moscow, Dubai, New York, Los Angeles) starting April 1st 2014.
