FrontRunners: Trunk De Blancs

The new champagne trunk from the house of Krug (212.251.8436, www.krug.com) promises to be the toast of itinerant imbibers. Each of the 30 limited edition, calfskin-wrapped, 3-by-2-by-1-foot walnut cases ($45,000), which Parisian leather goods maker Pinel & Pinel created for Krug, comes with three bottles of Krug Grande Cuvée and accessories that include a François Bauchet pewter cooler, a truffle grater by WMF, porcelain dishware by Rina Mènardi, mother-of-pearl caviar spoons, and Krug-engraved flutes. Where you partake in the revelry requires little, if any, consideration in advance; the chest has wheels and nickel-plated brass handles, and it contains four leather stools and a table (the trunk’s door removed from its hinges) certain to render the setting of your choosing a picnic. The Krug trunk also can serve as a stationary bar in a movable setting; Fred Pinel, the founder of Pinel & Pinel, will install it aboard a jet or yacht.
