Case Study

If Parisian sass and Yankee class had a love child, it would look an awful lot like Louis Vuitton’s “Pégase 45” suitcase in the hue Bleu Infini. The rolling suitcase is the ultimate fusion of quintessential New England neo-prep (credit clean lines and a classic navy-ish hue), discriminating style, and world-wise practicality. This versatile carryall is approved for carry-on use, and features a precisely fitted shield that offers protection during transit. And then there’s that Monogram Vernis texture, Marc Jacobs’s glossy spin on the classic LV design. It’s the height of subtle glam — as at home in the lobby of a grand Boston hotel as it is on a train to Portland, or on the cobblestoned sidewalks of Nantucket.
