A French luxury fashion brand is putting a new spin to one of its iconic products. Travelers with a little too much money to burn just love the LV Bisten series. These luxurious suitcases boast top-notch craftsmanship and quality that’s perfect for the affluent globetrotter. Now it’s taking a bold approach by replacing some materials its using for the construction of this range of luggage. The Louis Vuitton Bisten Monogram Titane is a collection of three classic trunks made of titanium.

A couple of months ago at the Cruise 2020 event, the luxury label was once again in the headlines for something innovative. Highlighting flexible OLED technology, the fashion industry got its first handbags with integrated display panels on the sides. Instead of earning praises, the feedback was mostly negative from the majority of fashion critics worldwide. However, the Titane series appears to be on the right track as the innovation everyone would rather have. The lightweight metal components should make it more durable than normal.

Mimicking the design of the traditional model, the Louis Vuitton Bisten Monogram Titane etches the prints using lasers. The titanium side panels look elegant as it wraps around the entire suitcase. To add some contrast, certain parts such as the lock, side clasps, and edges use ruthenium instead of the classic brass. Furthermore, the corners and handle are still made of cowhide leather and gray microfiber lining. There are three sizes to choose from: 50, 55, and 60. No need to wait long because these pieces are now available for purchase online or at official boutiques.
