Annie Leibovitz to design for Louis Vuitton

Photographer joins guest designers to help Louis Vuitton raise money for the Red Cross.

Iconic photographer Annie Leibovitz and British artist Damien Hirst are just two guest designers creating their ultimate piece of Louis Vuitton luggage for charity.

Along with Vuitton creative Director Marc Jacobs, who has created a travel trunk for his dogs to fly in luxury in the hold of a plane, Leibovitz has designed a red-lined back pack filled with compartments to transport camera equipment.

Damien Hirst has designed a tall black trunk lined in blue microfibre with several small drawers inside to house his surgical equipment (used when creating his art).

The pieces will be auctioned on 17th November at Sotheby’s to mark to 150th anniversary of the Red Cross..
