To commemorate Apollo 11's first lunar landing 40 years ago, the luxury fashion house has designed a “Malle Mars” custom trunk. It opens in multiple places and has several compartments and drawers.

The “Malle Mars” custom trunk is just another example of the fine forward thinking at Louis Vuitton. To see it in person, visit the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History on Monday, where it'll be exhibited alongside NASA memorabilia.

Implications - The acceptance of geek culture has led to a resurgence of the science fiction genre. Even the luxury fashion niche is releasing sci-fi accessories to appeal to upwardly mobile nerds with a passion for opulent design.
