Louis XIII Heads to London
A collaboration between Louis XIII, Hermès and St Louis invites visitors to be immersed in the brand, and to learn about cognac and the expression of time through their experience.
Taking place at the prestigious Burlington Arcade, the innovative pop-up showcases the heritage cognac trunk before it heads to Sotheby’s to be sold at auction on 17th November, with all proceeds going to Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation.
It’s American brother reached US$134,750 and its Asian counterpart had a starting bid of HK$800,000 so all eyes are set on the EU auction to see what the masterpiece will reach in London.
Inspired by the first shipments of LOUIS XIII in the late 1870s, L’Odyssée d’Un Roi features an entirely hand-stitched leather trunk, three white gold pipettes and LOUIS XIII’s exceptional Cognac blend in a mouth-blown, hand-engraved crystal magnum decanter and glasses.
