The designers were asked to come up with portable objects inspired by Louis Vuitton’s signature luggage and travel accessories. Fernando and Humberto Campana created a hanging travel cabinet made from leather offcuts from Louis Vuitton’s workshops.
“Each one is different,” Fernando Campana said at the launch in Miami. “We named them after the fruits of Brazil – each one has the name of a fruit, because the first idea was that it would be like a fruit hanging from a tree.”
The name Maracatu comes from a dance, a ritual dance from Brazil,” added Humberto Campana. “They use wigs and clothes with stripes of cloth, and they twist to make this movement.” Inside the travel cabinet are shelves and a light, and it also comes in a more minimal brown leather version without the swinging tassels.
