Equipaje de Louis Vuitton para The Darjeeling Limited

Consider the creative parallels between Marc Jacobs and Wes Anderson: Both make art that is quirky, highly intellectual, and romantic in an offbeat way. The pair also happen to be friends, and now, collaborators. Anderson's latest film, The Darjeeling Limited, revolves around three brothers' journey through India carrying their dead father's luggage?designed by Jacobs for Louis Vuitton. The monogrammed steamer trunks, duffels, and suitcases play an integral role in the film and were specially designed by Vuitton using aged calfskin, velvet lining, and a jungle pattern created by Anderson's brother, Eric. The brothers (played by Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and Adrien Brody) also wear Vuitton-designed suits throughout the film. Tabloid junkies who have followed Wilson's recent woes will have the opportunity to own a piece of Darjeeling memorabilia touched by the Butterscotch Stallion himself when the luggage is auctioned off, with proceeds going to UNICEF and the Rawal Mallinathji Foundation, a medical treatment charity in India chosen by Anderson-hardly excess baggage.
