CHATWIN is a container that can be opened, made of natural wood, lined entirely with Corian® and engraved with geometric decorations. It consists of two moving parts that enclose a series of drawers made of hickory, assembled with visible dovetail joints and hand-stitched suede handles, which alternate with organised modular compartments: this makes it suitable for multiple uses.

From the beginning of the nineteenth century till today, Louis Vuitton has created hundreds of thousands of wardrobes and trunks, each one with its own story and different destination in the world. Some rest in the attic, others are exhibited in a museum, others continue their journey in miniature size, to wear over the shoulder instead of a handbag.

The imperative is to travel light, yet wardrobes and trunks are back in fashion. Louis Vuitton, who built his name and fortune on luggage, proposes them mini-sized, to be worn over the shoulder instead of handbags. But there is also a designer with a nomadic soul who conceives them as household containers. Gian Paolo Venier from Trieste, possessing the traveller’s spirit like all inhabitants of great ports, created a series of large wardrobes to use instead of cabinets and chests of drawers, relying on the expertise of skilled craftsmen. With coloured exterior finishing and walnut interiors, once open they reveal specialised equipment for storing clothes and accessories, leaving nothing to be desired with respect to classic wardrobes. Functional like the classical furniture, they offer a taste of nostalgia linked to the era of the grand travellers of the last century, projecting the charm of adventure over permanence.

The mobility of Venier’s large trunks is facilitated by flush hinges and rotating micro-wheels that allow easy closure. There is the possibility of applying inscriptions or monograms on the suede handles and on one side there is the possibility of inserting a support which houses a wooden hanger, repositionable inside the cabinet.

If there is one thing that has definitively helped to firmly contribute to Louis Vuitton’s great success, there is no doubt that this is the production of his luxurious trunks, which have always represented the legendary French fashion house in the world. A real symbol, so deeply rooted in the history of costume to be immediately identified with the company itself, becoming an ambassador of the brand in the world for over a century.

After opening its first store in Rue Neuve des Capucines, Vuitton reinvents the trunk, as it was known at the time by changing its top shape, from round to square. As such, one of the most important companies in the fashion industry was born.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
