The historic landing of the Apollo 11 on theÂ moon 40 years ago is a moment of celebration all over the world. The television busies itself presenting programmes based on the achievement while movie channels showcase films of similar genre. And guess what Louis Vuitton does? Well, it creates a custom-order trunk called Malle Mars. Now we do wonder, why they didn’t think of a more appropriate Moonie Moon, but that’s a different issue altogether.
Coming back to Malle Mars, we are told that it looks like somethings that comes straight from the sets of ‘Star Trek’. It is an aerodynamic trunk with several compartments to meet all sorts of space requirements when one is on the go, which even includesdrawers for dishware and a folding chair.
LV is celebrating the anniversary at the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History today. The trunk along with some NASA pics, space toys etc will be showcased there. Astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Jim Lovell and Sally Ride will be in attendance.And on the same occasion, we ae told, LV is giving away an undisclosed sum to Al Gore’s Climate Project.
