In his Fall 2014 fashion show, Nicolas Ghesquière paid tribute to the legendary Louis Vuitton trunk with a piece of fine jewelry, “La Petite Malle”, to wear as a distinctive pendant.

With over 150 years of history, Louis Vuitton trunks are the secular emblems of the House, synonymous with travel, adventure, exploration, secrets, and treasures. For his very first women’s collection, Nicolas Ghesquière specifically designed miniature trunks to wear as a minaudière bag and as a refined 18 carat yellow gold pendant, as seen here.

This precious talisman will now dress women’s necklines in the form of three different trunks to choose from: a cubic trunk in Epi gold, an open trunk with compartments, and a rectangular trunk in sandy gold.

The exact design of the historical Louis Vuitton trunk is recreated with thorough craftsmanship: corner pieces, delicate padding, handles, saddles, “LV“ initials engraved, nails, Epi leather effect, and a gold bar in the back engraved with hallmark, gold weight and composition. Last but not least, a “lock hole” chain carries each pendant.
