according to the official America's Cup website:

"In 1995 the America’s Cup was held in San Diego. Louis Vuitton designed an exclusive collection of luggage cases especially for the occasion. It was a limited, numbered edition that used the famous material and was stamped with the unique Louis Vuitton monogram. Each piece was designed to be practical, functional and refined, and that could be used on a racing boat, the trunk of a luxury car or in an international airport.

Each travel bag could be easily stored, and quickly adapted as a hand or shoulder bag or carried as a back pack. The colours of the collection had been selected to evoke sunsets over the Pacific in illuminating mahogany and polished copper tones. The sheen on the leather is protected by a special fabric treatment that ensures the goods can last thousands of miles of travel without a single crease appearing.

Louis Vuitton has wanted to adapt its designs to the location of each sailing event, and the clasps on the bags were therefore shaped to represent the famous San Diego whales."





size comparison with my other luggage bags!

YUM! The Bag is gorgeous!! I love seeing all these rare LV's, especially one as unique as this one! It's beautiful. I love the whale clasp, it's incredibly cute! The orange color is to die for, as well.

Simply gorgeous! Thank you for sharing this with us. Take care!
