Since graduating from New York’s renowned Parsons School of Design in 1981, Marc Jacobs has established himself as one of the world’s most influential fashion designers. As Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton, he has initiated a series of creative collaborations with contemporary artists, including Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince, that have not only revisited Louis Vuitton’s historic signatures, notably Monogram canvas, but have profoundly redefined fashion itself.

Jetting frequently between his native New York and his home in Paris, Marc Jacobs travels accompanied by his two bull terriers, Daisy and Alfred. He asked Louis Vuitton to design a travel kennel in Monogram canvas to allow his pets to travel in style in the hold of an aircraft. Not dissimilar in conception to a traditional trunk, with natural leather handles, a brass S-lock and corners, the Niche de Voyage boasts an array of specific features geared to maximum canine comfort: a wire door, generous air vents, a zinc dish for water and food, and even a space for a photograph of the dogs’ owner and a sample of his clothing to reassure them during the flight.

“With the expertise and the superb craftsmanship of the Louis Vuitton Ateliers, I am happy to have created these “homes away from home” for my beloved dogs. It is a privilege and an honour to be involved with Louis Vuitton in helping to raise money for this most worthy cause.” – Marc Jacobs
