Marc Jacobs-designed Louis Vuitton travel kennel sold at Sotheby’s auction

kennel_lMarc Jacobs reportedly designed this travel kennel with tongue in cheek — it was one of seven custom Louis Vuitton-branded items sold recently by Sotheby’s in a fundraiser for the Red Cross, and it’s clearly over the top. The exterior is monogram canvas “with hand painted personalisation,” leather, and lots of brass; the interior is “Vuittonite leather,” brass, zinc, and leather. At 39Lx27.5Wx30H, it’s certainly not tucking under the seat in front of you — but given that it was estimated to sell at £25,000 to £35,000, its new owner is likely not to have to worry about pesky commercial airline requirements. (The auction raised £495,000 for the Red Cross.)
