louis vuitton "1995 lv cup" garment bag

le package from zurich

they squeezed it into a tiny box...

which when unfolded becomes this huge suit carrier

lined with cotton on the inside...

even the hanger bears the vuitton inscription

the classic vuitton zippers...

with a rubber whale covering the lock!

details on whale reads "1995 vuitton cup"

details of one of the side flaps

the garment carrier can be transformed into a duffel too

details on the front

details of the other side flap

when the sides are not buttoned down, it creates more space on the inside. just how big is this bag?

very biiiiig. it might sound surprising, but these are the only 3 vuitton items i've owned, all bought this year. the red tobago keepall 50 in may from geneva, the green taiga leather helanga in july from paris, and now the san diego sunset red garment bag in september from zurich.

final parting shot, with flash.


i took the pics in my room at night without flash, so quality isn't at it's best. this bag is HUMONGOUS. i don't know what i will do with it, but i am glad i bought it even as a collectors' item.

  14. hi anon,

    i got this bag from a second hand shop based in switzerland, costs slightly less than US$800. the lv cup series are rather rare, so you might need to search a bit for it.

    here's a lv cup duffel in blue from the 1992 series: http://www.malleries.com/authentic-louis-vuitton-cup-1992-blue-duffle-bag-limited-edition-rare-i-15809-s-94.html

    happy shopping!

  17. Hi!
    Do you know if luxury-shops.com has something as a SALE or sale discount or reduction or something like that with a code (as oki-ni offers too...) ???
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  18. anon: i've not heard of discount codes for luxury-shops. they do have seasonal reductions on certain items, just got to keep checking their site really.

    happy shopping :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes i know.
    But a really discount on all items i have never found (only on selected).

    And is there again a discount and code for OKI-NI?
    Thank you!
