Old designer suitcases and hat boxes...

There is something very timeless about the Louis Vuitton signature patterned trunks, suitcases and hat boxes.
I've always loved old suitcases and trunks.
My grandmother travelled all over the world in the 1920s and she had many interesting suitcases and luggage pieces - my favourite the old metal trunks. In these large suitcases were my grandmother's, grandfather's and my Dad's few possessions. Reminders of a life they were leaving behind in England to start a new life in Australia in the 1950s.
Their travelling trunks weren't of course Louis Vuitton suitcases but they were fascinating and just as beautiful all the same.
