Louis Vuitton and Infiniti share the ESSENCE OF LUXURY

16.11.2010 / Yokohama - Cairo - Dubai /

Louis Vuitton and Infiniti are two extremely popular and successful brands in most countries in the Middle East and gulf region. You find a lot of Louis Vuitton in Middle Eastern cupboards and you find all the different Infiniti models parked in the garages of their stylish owners.

Now you will find some Infiniti and Louis Vuitton products even 'parked' in the living room, as Infiniti, the Japanese luxury automotive manufacturer announced the production of a Limited Edition collector’s “Essence Sculpture�, inspired by the stunning Infiniti Essence concept car unveiled last year in celebration of the automaker’s 20th anniversary. Made from solid resin, penned by the vehicle’s original Infiniti designer, and supervised by Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Shiro Nakamura, the beautiful ornaments will be restricted to 300 individually numbered units worldwide.

After the actual concept car bespoke luggage, Louis Vuitton has created for Infiniti a carrying case for the specimen number one of the Essence Sculpture. This second collaboration with the world leader in luxury epitomizes Infiniti's quest for ultimate luxury and savoir-faire.

For this special order, Louis Vuitton craftsmen have designed an original Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite design case to serve as a high quality, transport and presentation case for the first Essence Sculpture that will be on display at the global Headquarters of Infiniti in Japan.

This case has been handcrafted in Louis Vuitton’s historical workshop in Asni?¨res (France), where all special orders are made to cater specific needs or to fulfil particular desires.

Although we did not have a chance to test-drive many Infiniti models yet, the Infiniti’s global line-up includes several models such as the Infiniti G sedan, coupe and convertible, the all-new Infiniti M luxury sedan, Infiniti EX compact crossover, Infiniti FX performance crossover, and Infiniti QX full-size luxury crossover.

Infiniti currently has over 250 retail outlets worldwide.

Louis Vuitton on the other hand has been the world leader in luxury and has been synonymous with the art of stylish travel since 1854.

Since 1997, with the arrival of the designer Marc Jacobs, it has extended its expertise to women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, shoes, sunglasses, watches and jewellery, combining traditional craftsmanship with flair and innovation to create a complete lifestyle experience.

Since 1987, it has been part of LVMH / Mo?«t Hennessy. Louis Vuitton, the world’s foremost luxury goods group is headed by Bernard Arnault.

Infiniti and Louis Vuitton surely do fit together somehow.
