Louis Vuitton Trunk on Fire
Hollywood’s favourite photographer Tyler Shields is at it again – destroying yet another object of desire of many luxury lovers around the world. From feeding a Birkin bag to an alligator to blowing up a Rolls Royce Silver, this time Tyler’s victim in the name of art was a vintage Louis Vuitton trunk.
Before the trunk got completely destroyed in the fire, Tyler invited his dear friend and frequent collaborator actress and model Lydia Hearst to pose with it in the desert. The result were the two captivating and surreal photographs below. Lydia commented,
“The trunk was bigger on the inside…”
Artworks each come in three sizes (editions of three), so there will only ever be nine original copies in the world. As for the trunk, on the other hand, we bid it goodbye, once and for all!
