A guitar case fit for rock royalty Louis Vuitton makes trunks for your shoes, bags for your golf clubs, briefcases for your laptop and even cases to hold a decanter of your favourite Scotch. In fact, they’ll make a bespoke case for pretty much whatever your heart desires—all you need is an idea and a bit of time. So why not a case for your most prized guitar?
For spring/summer 2015, Vuitton’s designer Kim Jones drew inspiration from Jaipur, India, imbuing the menswear collection with the bright colours, bold patterns and vivid textures of South Asia. Because Vuitton is first and foremost a maker of fine luggage, the collection also includes four special-edition trunks, including a record case, a composer’s case (designed to hold music paper, ink and notebooks) and this masterful guitar case, all crafted from aged natural cowhide.
Jones designed the case to keep a very special instrument safe on your next far-flung journey—and the ultra-soft shearling sheepskin lining the interior will ensure this. Any guitar precious enough to belong in here, after all, is a work of art in its own right.
