  • Louis Vuitton's Rolling Luggage

Revamping an icon can be a tricky affair, especially when said icon is the beloved Louis Vuitton rolling trunk.

Globetrotters will be pleased to know that the four-wheeled trunks are 15 per cent more spacious than similarly sized trunks. Besides the classic monogrammed and Damier prints, you can also pick from seven colours in Epi leather. #02-14 Ion Orchard. Tel: 6788-3888.
