The Asnières atelier is the House's true hub and puts its soul into the creation of every special order. The family's sons all learned the art of trunk-making here, including Patrick-Louis Vuitton, who is in charge of these special orders. To this day, each dream finds its special case as long as it can be transported. Shower-trunks, iPad trunks, or even one-off violin trunks… Travel remains at the heart of the House, where refinement is born of careful precision and attention to detail.
Construction of a tailor-made structure in poplar wood, the application of cement, canvas, lozine, metal corners and screws, malletage… Timeless gestures which express an inspirational magic. Artistic Director of Women's Collections Nicolas Ghesquière imagined the Petite Malle, a way of reinventing the trunk, the House's absolute symbol.
