"Patrick-Louis Vuitton has been the house’s special-order supremo since 1975. This recent assignment – one of 450 per year for the special-order team at the Asnieres atelier – was a reminder of his very first malle (trunk), a 1.10-metre-high, 45-centimetre-wide case for a hi-fi unit with an old-fashioned cassette player and turntable.
Louis Vuitton’s historic special made-to-order service is comfortably attuned to the modern techno age. One client – none other than Karl Lagerfeld of rival brand Chanel – turned to Patrick-Louis for an iPod-carrying trunk of black Taiga leather with trademark brass fittings and a red interior. For 40 iPods. Just what does Karl do with all those earphones?"
