Louis Vuitton is very familiar with this magical universe.
The inventiveness of the Maison’s founders and the skill of its craftsmen were so well known in the circus world that it would appear that Houdini, the famous conjurer who defied every security mechanism in the late 19th century, even decided against confronting the — said to be impregnable — locks on Louis Vuitton trunks. Documents of the time show that the mime artist Kita always had his customised trunk to hand, even on stage.
And because legend and magic go hand in hand, destiny doubtless conspired so that the Rancy family, who owned an eponymous circus, took up residence on
the land next to the Asnières home. A Louis Vuitton trunk was specially designed to offer transportation of choice to a dwarf pony, creating the surprise of the show.
