Functional Luxury Luggage

The New Louis Vuitton Roller Luggage Was Designed By Apple's Design VP

— July 18, 2016 — World
Apple's Vice President of design, Mark Newson, was approached by Louis Vuitton to design a roller luggage line for the luxury fashion house.

As Newson tends to travel frequently for work, he understands the problems that come along with many roller luggage bags and how to resolve them. The designer created luggage that was slim and designed from a "shock-proof mesh," while the company's Monogram canvas was thinned out to ensure that the luggage was as light as possible. The bags only have one zipper, which integrates with a lock -- allowing users to secure their luggage in one swift motion. The luggage comes in a variety of colors including orange, blue, navy, red, yellow and black.

The luxury luggage line ensures that users can travel in style while optimizing functionality.
