Australian designer Marc Newson designs a new collection of technological and lightweight luggage for Louis Vuitton

The new Horizon Soft collection, designed by Marc Newson for Louis Vuitton, includes soft rolling luggage covered in a thermoformed 3D knit with the Louis Vuitton’s signature Monogram. The knit is fully fashioned in a custom-made technical yarn that includes elastic and thermo-fusible threads, using seamless knitting technology.

Prior to the thermoforming process, the knit undergoes a water repellent treatment. On bags and suitcases seams are replaced with tape fused through heat setting; pocket cuts and zippers are made with ultrasound cutting technique.

The new rolling suitcases, available in different colors, have compact wheels, a double zipper and a “U” opening system, guaranteeing practicality. The Horizon Soft bags, designed by Marc Newson for Louis Vuitton, weigh only 1.7 kg, helping you move more easily and making your journey less tiring. Water and oil repellent finishes are in cowhide and plastic. [Text Isabelle Fournier]
