For 2007’s The Darjeeling Limited, Wes Anderson enlisted Marc Jacobs, then the creative director of Louis Vuitton, to make period-style suitcases inspired by the company’s archives. For his latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which takes place in Europe between the wars, Anderson commissioned Miuccia Prada to create a 21-piece set for the characters Madame D. (Tilda Swinton) and M. Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes). Based on designs from the ’20s and ’30s, when Prada was predominantly a leather-goods brand, the luggage, which features turn-of-the-century finishes and a vintage Grana Paglia pattern, plays only a bit part but makes a lasting impression.
