|Vintage suitcase with labels from word travels (source)|
The image of an antique steamer trunk covered in hotel labels has always been the ultimate symbol of travel for me. I think of the Golden Age of travel, when different modes of transportation made the unreachable finally reachable. During this time hotel labels were in high fashion and served as a memento of one’s past journeys.
Luggage labels captured the spirit of adventure, long before travel blogs and flickr albums. There were men and women who had the foresight to know that these labels would eventually tell a grand story. One of the most enthusiastic o fwanderers of his time was the grandson of Louis Vuitton, Gaston-Louis. Over the course of his international travels he collected 3,000 unique hotel labels from all corners of the world.
As a tribute to traveling and the artof collecting beautiful things, the Louis Vuitton brand published reproductions of 30 different hotel labels from Gaston-Louis’s private collection. These labels are packaged as the beautiful and timeless Louis Vuitton Hotel Label Postcards Box and this is my gift to one lucky winner!
