THE ART OF PACKING
A colleague of mine at work introduced me to this nifty feature on the Louis Vuitton website called -The Art of Packing. And I'm sure as hell glad that he did! Honestly, this is such a timely find, especially for those who will soon be embarking on their RTW Fashion Week journey's to far flung fashion capitals!
Following suit the celebration of The Art of Traveling a few months back, this feature showcases some of the brand's most iconic luxe travel bags - The Alzer, The Keepall and The Pegase - all with instructional videos on how best to utilize the space available in each one with all of your travel essentials. Not only that, they also showcase tips and tricks on packing, folding and so much more. I adored going through the neat packing trips, unique to the bag's style and make. In general the tips will work for most bags of the same style and make as they are actually quite common sensical and useful to the nth degree. For instance keeping all the heavy pieces at the bottom of your travel bag, opening collars to ensure no creases are on the outer portion, packing together heavy clothing like trenches and slacks, rolling up shirts and cardigans and the list goes on and on!
One thing I noticed though, going through all of this, made me want to run down Louis Vuitton and ensure that I'm all decked out in their travel bags & accessories ASAP. Genius on their behalf if you ask me. Well who doesn't want to travel in extreme luxury? After all, I think that's what their travel pieces stand for. Sheer luxury and art. As they say - travel [and in this case packing] is an art, so why not work with the best option you've got eh?
