Louis Vuitton is serious about carbon fiber. After designing carbon black BMW i8Luggage set, the French fashion house has released the Damier Carbone Keepall Bandouliere, made from the lightweight carbon fiber material which is usually used in supercars, planes and yachts.
Louis Vuitton first forayed into using the innovative material in 2010 with the Damier Carbone Keepall 45. This year, the Damier Carbone Keepall is a bigger, better and 35% lighter version of its Monogram counterpart.
The carbon fiber coated canvas provides high tensile strength, chemical resistance and high-temperature tolerance ideal for robust travelers. The Damier Carbone Keepall features a removable and adjustable shoulder strap with patch, rounder leather handles for easier portability.
Aluminum and silver brass metallic pieces bear the brand’s padlock. The ultra-light microfiber lining is helmed with cowhide leather trimmings with name tag, handles fastener and zipped closure.
The Damier Carbone Keepall Bandoulière comes in two sizes: 45 (17.7″ x 9.8″ x 7.9″) for 2.380 Euro ($3,300) and 55 (21.7″ x 11.8″ x 9.4″) available for 2.630 Euro ($3,650).
