Early 19th C. French Louis Vuitton and Goyard trunk and luggage workshops exported to the traveling upper classes of the world. As trunk-making techniques became more advanced, these makers produced virtuoso examples of the French styles. Complete traveling closets were made to accommodate the elaborate dresses, suits, and uniforms of the Belle Epoque. Collection of nostalgic but highly practical trunk reproductions inspired by originals from the turn of the century.
