The holidays have arrived and Amsterdam is bursting with cultural exhibitions, light festivals, and shows. One of the cities historical museums theĀ Beurs van Berlage is hosting Louis Vuitton’s “Legendary Trunks the Expo”. A fantasy like adventure into the life of the iconic LV trunks.

As fascinating as it sounds, the stories behind the extraordinary craftsmanship of the prestigious travel baggage is so intriguing, from the written notes of Hemingway himself who claims that not only clothes travel. He further describes his Trunk in detail which held his beloved typewriter and a mini library of books. Fascinating personal stories of the Titanic and travels to Monte Carlo, Paris and London. During the 1900’s travel was hitting groundbreaking changes and people were beginning to take to the globe and where there is travel there is style. Louis Vuitton developed his brand by selling the idea of adventure, elegance and individual personality. Initials have been embossed since the company first opened its doors. Vuitton wanted his clients to understand that they could travel with their most prized possessions and that this needed to be treated like treasures in a treasure chest. The expo is an interactive story telling experience will be on until February 18 2018.
