The groom carries a Steamer Bag . Created in 1901 under the name of the inviolable ("which protects your private life"), it is an extra bag, originally an essential edge bag for travelers going on a cruise. It was indeed at the beginning of the 20th century that transatlantic cruises developed aboard very luxurious boats, with comfortable cabins? Whatever their destination, these cruises lasted several days, even several weeks.
Folded at the start of the bleeding crossing to store in the bottom of the closet of the wardrobe trunk or "wardrobe" , the Steamer Bag unfolded to be hung by the leather handle on the cabin door and to store dirty laundry in it. as the trip unfolded.

2013 - The Louis Vuitton Aero trunk
From the end of the 19th century, Louis Vuitton made a specialty of accompanying the elegant traveler in all situations, even the most extreme.
The "Air Ballon" glass dome is inspired by a black ink drawing signed by Pierre-Emilie Legrain, dated from the 1910s. It represents a man sleeping in a Louis Vuitton trunk transformed into a hot air balloon basket. While Louis Vuitton has never designed a carrycot in Monogram canvas, the House has been able to quickly develop practical accessories for traveling in a balloon.
As early as 1906, it presented a project for an unsinkable trunk, whose name "Aéro" would be officially registered two years later. She then designated a trunk that could be attached to the basket of a free balloon. In 1910, the Maison's catalogs and advertisements even claimed that the "Aéro" trunk ensured "the buoyancy of the nacelles in the event of a fall at sea. Rigorously sealed closure".
In 1920, at the fifth air show held at the Grand Palais, novelties were legion and authorized circles wondered what exactly to call these flying machines. "Aéro" is now the name of an extra-light trunk for men. weighing 18 kilos empty, it was designed and studied for air travel, and can carry 8 to 12 kilos of clothing.

History of the fragrance box
Alabaster fragrance box is a unique and luxurious travel item, redesigned by Lousi vuitton in the purest artisanal tradition. This noble ornamental stone extracted from the soil of the Tuscany region was originally used for perfume vases.
Today, Louis Vuitton perpetuates this tradition:
the box, with its rounded shapes, was fashioned with one of the best know-how of Italian craftsmen.
Inside, shards of volcanic stone from Tuscany have been bleeding bathed in a natural concentrate of fig essence. This essence, which recalls the aromas of the Mediterranean, is extracted from the region of Grasse (France), the cradle of French perfumery.
The exceptional properties of alabaster allow a slow diffusion of the fragrance through the translucent walls, which by their purity, make it a wonderful decorative object. The lid is decorated with subtly printed Monogram flowers. The origin of the fragrance box dates back to the Etruscans, a traveling people of the 8th century BC, settled in Tuscany (Italy) who established this custom to embalm the outfits of the time. Lousi Vuitton, a pioneer in the art of travel, is now recomposing this ancestral tradition to perfume your clothes, your room or your wardrobe on a daily basis as well as when travelling. Faithful to its origins as a layetier-packer, the house crosses the generations, with the Box of its know-how in an extreme concern for quality.
Directions for use:
1. When traveling, transport the box in its original packaging.
2. For discreet use, allow the fragrance to diffuse without removing the lid. For a more intense diffusion of the fragrance, lift the lid.
