To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Red Cross, a movement initiated on the battlefield of Solférino in 1859, Louis Vuitton has created the Boîte Spéciale Croix-Rouge. The hard-sided case in Monogram canvas, equipped with Louis Vuitton’s signature natural leather handle, brass S-lock and corners, opens frontally to reveal an array of red and grey aluminium medicine boxes arranged in such a way as to form the familiar emblem of the Red Cross. The logo of the Red Cross is hand-painted on the front of the case.

“When reflecting upon our collaboration with the Red Cross, it came to my mind to create a special Red Cross kit. The compilation of the red and silver aluminum boxes to form a red cross on the inside along with the logo on the outside make it visually impactful and a truly unique piece.” says Patrick-Louis Vuitton

“When Louis Vuitton, the world-famous company informed us of its ambition to reproduce the original first aid kit, inspired by the 1914 pattern, we were looking forward to seeing the result. The final design is superb. With its pure aesthetics, it has the highest symbolic value, representing the power of its red cross.” says Oliver Brault, Managing Director of the French Red Cross.
