LOUIS VUITTON LUGGAGE Exhibition • NYC 2017

Travel by AIR…SEA and AUTO opened a whole new world of luggage for Vuitton.

He custom designed for specific needs of his clients.

 

LOUIS VUITTON Exhibition • NYC 2017

Louis Vuitton founded his company in 1854.  He designed the trunks for Empress Eugenie……..and his business took off.  He perfected the “flat trunk”……..his use of fabrics and patterns set his luggage apart from his competitors.


The success of his company was guaranteed when he designed the first vertical wardrobe trunk.  The invention of the tumbler lock allowed the owner to open each piece of luggage with the same hey and some wealthy clients traveled with as many as seventy pieces of luggage.

I collect the original art of the fashion designer PAUL POIRET……so it was fun to discover the personalized trunk he used when traveling.

SUBWAY RIDERS and Posters

The MTA actually calls us ” CUSTOMERS”…..but we still call ourselves RIDERS…… at their mercy.  The New York Times said we have the worst record of any subway worldwide.  At times…..we are packed in like cattle!

There are 1,756,814,800 riders on the SUBWAY per year……thats almost two billion!  Woah!  There are 22 interconnected subways  with the largest number of stations of any system in the world.

 

 

Another ART BUYING BINGE this week

 

I don’t have another inch of space on my walls………but I went ART SHOPPING anyway. No,  I did not  bid on the Leonardo Da Vince “Portrait of Christ”….I was a bit short  of cash……….$450 million to be exact!

I did score a Bonnard….a Charon……….some English Chromolithographs……an antique map and a few other prints.
