Often overrated but never forgotten, our bags (and other small leather accessories) have so many tales to tale, so many dreams to carry! Oscar winning director Wes Anderson knows his way around storytelling and dreamcatching! Mix the two and you get:
Wes Anderson bags and accessories! Not since the happy days of Sofia Coppola releasing her designs for the Louis Vuitton maison I’ve been so excited about movies and practical fashion! Something in Wes Anderson’s mind works in mysterious and unique ways that enchant us all with their magic! From the latest Grand Budapest Hotel back to the Darjeeling Limited and the Royal Tenenbaums, Wes Anderson’s style is fabulous and unmissable!
Every movie has been so inspiring, even the grand Karl Lagerfeld took note and designs were rooted in The Grand Budapest Hotel (with Pharrell Williams’ extraordinary participation). However, Wes Anderson wasn’t afraid to cast serious fashion characters next to his favorite actors. Darjeeling Limited (starring three brothers trying to get back the bond they once had) centers around fancy luggage designed by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton especially for the movie.
That happened, however, more than 7 years ago! The LV Darjeeling Limited luggage was very limited also, never re-issued since. A clever Wes Anderson fan has found the solution, though: he went on to design his own Darjeeling Limited bags. After months of designing and scooping for the right materials, the Italian finance lawyer Alberto Favaretto issued the Darjeeling Limited duffle bag, complete with the whimsical embroidery and owner initials!
Starting his own label ‘Very Troubled Child’ – a nod to Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom movie, Favaretto has released notebooks with designs inspired by Wes Anderson’s movies. Upon their quick sellout, Favaretto started the bag-designing process and expanded his brand offerings to phone cases, small leather goods and even swimwear inspired by The Life Aquatic!
