Artist Damien Hirst Designs Creepy Trunks for Louis Vuitton

Posted on: Dec 31

Louis Vuitton has commissioned modern British artist Damien Hirst to create an exclusive piece to celebrate the label's 150th anniversary. The result is this rather sinister twin trunk set designed to carry surgical equipment.

The macabre approach isn't so surprising though considering Hirst was inspired by David Cronenberg's film Dead Ringers. The assignment was to design a piece to reflect Hirst's art, rather than the luxury of Louis Vuitton, so I suppose this creepy creation fits the bill!

Hirst oversaw the development of his trunks in Louis Vuitton's Asnieres workshops. Each is made from black nomade leather covered in blue microfiber fabric. The interiors are decorated with an odd combination of butterflies and silvery skulls.

No prices or launch dates have been announced as yet, although we can apparently expect a global release. For now though, we'll just have to be content looking at the photos!
