Famed fashion house Louis Vuitton have unveiled a stunning new collaboration with some of the world’s leading contemporary designers. The project, called the Objets Nomades, is a 16-piece collection of objects which are foldable, modular furniture, or some form of portable accessory which would facilitate the life of a modern traveler.
Although it’s hard to pick, some of our favorites at the Haute Design Network include the origami-like foldable stools created by Atelier Oïd, the Col de Voyage neck pillow (yes, it’s a neck pillow that is actually stylish) by Constance Guisset and the ultra-covetable Bag Hanger by Perrine Desmons. Each piece is clever, utterly useful and of course beautifully luxurious. Louis Vuitton unveiled the Objets Nomades during Art Basel Miami, but just like their iconic luggage, the collection is already on the move, and is currently on view at Omotesando in Tokyo.
From there, the collection travel to Louis Vuitton boutiques around the world, including their stores at Marina Bay in Singapore, Taipei 101 in Taipei, New Bond Street in London, Champs-Élysées in Paris and finally, SoHo in New York. If you can’t make it to any of those cities, fret not; certain pieces will be available for limited-edition purchase.
This is not the first time the famed fashion house has collaborated with the world of design. Gaston-Louis Vuitton, the grandson of the company’s founder, was involved in the Art Nouveau and Art Décoratifs movements, initiating collaborations with the great artists of the early 20th century, including Legrain, Puiforcat, Conversat and Lalique.
