The stunning video contrasts a story about the brand’s history with advanced technology. It jumps back and forth between the many designs developed by the house throughout the years, providing a graphic explosion at the crossroads between the late 19th and early 21st century.

Hundreds of thousand of trunks have been handmade by Louis Vuitton since the 19th century. They all have their own history. They are scattered throughout the four corners of the globe. Some sleep in attics, others are in museums, others are still travelling. Trunks are like special possessions, carefully preserved or lost forever.
