Today my mom approached me with a very interesting question, she's asked me to help her find a (brand new, non-vintage) hard-case luggage that she will put on show in her living room for decoration. She didn't tell me any specific brand, so I suggested her either LV or Goyard. But Goyard will be quite difficult to obtain here as there is no official Goyard dealer in Bangkok. Plus, I think Goyard will be a lot more expensive than LV. So LV is the only way to go unless we check out the antique stores. She told me a budget of US$15,000. We have several LV catalogues at home (not the latest Gold one tho) and I've been having a hard time picking one (the trunks and cases are shown in the first pages). Not sure about the prices as well, will call LV soon. So far I have the Malle Courrier * M13210 (43"x22"x19") in mind. Otherwise we could buy three Alzers (32"x20"x10") and stack them. The Malle Courrier will have to be special ordered (up to a year's waiting time) but the Alzers can be bought immediately. What do you think? Any experience to share?
