Louis Vuitton and Cindy Sherman Create the Coolest Travel Trunk, Ever

In celebration of the house's 160th anniversary, Louis Vuitton's new #CelebratingMonogram campaign has brought together iconic artists, filmmakers, and designers to create some seriously drool-worthy swag. Of the impressive team of "Iconoclasts" (including Karl Lagerfeld, Frank Gehry, Rei Kawakubo, and Marc Newson) and their limited editions, artist Cindy Sherman's Studio In A Trunk is an immediate stand-out.  

As a prop stylist (aka bag lady) whose daily grind often includes transporting Uber XL-loads of furniture, decor, flowers, and tool kits around Manhattan, smart storage units always catch my eye.  But an exquisitely hand-crafted case that includes a folding stool and removable vanity mirror?  This is my new gold standard. The 31 drawers are upholstered in a spectrum of jewel-tone hues (inspired by the plumes of Sherman's pet macaw, Mister Frida), encased within an exclusive update of the brand's iconic monogram print, finished with gold brass hardware.

All that said, the studio trunk is produced in a limited edition of 25, and priced for the 1%. Meaning that until I win the lottery, I'll be just fine hauling my mismatching suitcases and armfuls of IKEA bags.
