Louis Vuitton’s new Spirit of Travel collection.
Everything is devoted to high-end travel at Vuitton, now more than ever, with recent highlights of that spirit including Neil Armstrong-space-themed ads, one-off luxurious travel bags by contemporary artists, and now the label’s new fine jewelry collection, which will be unveiled at an exclusive event October 7. Named Spirit of Travel, the range consists of six sets, each including a unique necklace for $2.5 million, created by jeweler Lorenz Bäumer, who said that he was inspired by a lifetime of travels. – From The Independent
