CAR CULTURE: In recent years, Louis Vuitton has collaborated with Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince. The house’s newest partner, though, is not from the arts world. At the Louis Vuitton Classic Awards, which were held in Geneva on Monday, the company unveiled that it teamed up with Infiniti, the luxe division of Nissan Motor Co., on a new set of luggage for the brand’s Essence hybrid concept car.
