TRUNK SHOW

The traditional trunk might evoke images of old-fashioned travel by steamer ship or propeller plane. But Fred Pinel has given a 21st-century spin to the luggage, specializing in themed luxury trunks largely destined for home use.

Trunks filled with a Bang & Olufsen sound system, a fold-up bike or an old-school arcade are among private commissions conceived over the past few years by the designer, who recently opened his first Pinel & Pinel flagship, based in a courtyard on the tony Rue Royale. The boutique offers a range of “ready-to-wear” designs, which start at around 6,000 euros, or about $8,400 at current exchange, and a custom-order service. A range of leather goods is also on offer.

Pinel hopes to open a flagship in London early next year at the latest, and a store in Los Angeles or New York is likely to follow.
