Prior to becoming the biggest luxury fashion house in the world, Louis Vuitton was an atelier that specialised in making trunks for travel.

Last year, in lieu of the founder’s 200th anniversary, the brand held an exhibition — 200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries — that served as a retrospective for their iconic trunks. And fronting their latest travel campaign is singer, idol and creative director, Jackson Wang shot in Paris by Glen Luchford.

Jackson got his start fencing, where he was an athlete practising for the Olympics. However, he dropped the sport to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a performer.

He first made a splash into the entertainment scene through the K-pop group GOT7, where he grew to be a fan favourite for his candid and charming personality.

He further expanded his repertoire as a solo artist, producer and even a creative director at his own label, Team Wang. A multi-hyphenate, his recent partnership with the brand befits the Maison’s rich legacy.
