BMW has teamed up with French fashion house Louis Vuitton to create bespoke carbon fiber luggage to match the new carbon fiber i8 plug-in hybrid.
The match isn’t as cynical as it might seem either, as the French malletier was the godfather of fine luggage in the 19th century and BMW has an equally illustrious history in the automotive sphere. Carbon fiber anything is also very cool.
It’s sure to be an expensive union, however, given that the i8 will cost more than $136,000 when it arrives in the US this summer. Made exclusively from carbon fiber the luggage is unlikely to be what most would consider ‘affordable’ either.
