BMW i8 owners are going to travel in more style with Louis Vuitton's tailor-made set of luggage for the plug-in hybrid sports car. It includes two travel bags, a business case and a garment bag.
Made from entirely carbon fiber like i8's passenger cell, LV has used the high-tech material to create a special textile that offers robustness and strength. It will feature a carbon-black look on the chequered Damier pattern and a laser-etched Louis Vuitton signature.
All items in the collection feature leather name tags and the iconic Louis Vuitton padlock - with the exception of the garment bag.
The Louis Vuitton luggage series will be available upon request in a selection of Louis Vuitton stores worldwide (Munich, Milan, London, Paris, Moscow, Dubai, New York, Los Angeles) starting April 1 2014.
