Louis Vuitton has unveiled its new range of soft luggage, designed by long-time LV collaborator and industry legend Mark Newson. The Horizon Soft collection joins the previously launched Horizon Luggage line, which featured hard luggage reimagined from Louis Vuitton’s traditional trunks. Touted as one of the most influential designers of his generation, this time Newson brought his innovative vision for travel to life by designing a collection of light-weight but resilient soft luggage and duffel bags.
The designer credited rigorous engineering and mindful design for this line of revolutionary soft luggage, which features a durable yet stylish outer-shell made from 3D-knit technical yarn with elastic and water-repellent properties. Offered in eye-catching colours like fuchsia and yellow as well as Newson’s interpretation of Louis Vuitton’s classic monogram, it’s easy to see why this collection has already become a favourite of many jet-setting celebrities.
Newson elaborated on his guiding philosophy: “Design, by definition, is disruption and innovation. If it’s not new then, what’s the point?” The designer added, “I’m a frequent traveller and like a lot of people I know I’m travelling non-stop so I know what I want my luggage to do. Travel is so intrinsically linked to luxury, from the historical context to a functional context. The two just go hand in hand really.”
The Horizon Soft Luggage Collection is now available in Louis Vuitton MBS, Ngee Ann City, and ION boutiques, from SGD $3,850.
