It is not the first time that Louis Vuitton is working with another brand or artist. During the last years, the Luxury Fashion Firm has collaborated with outstanding artists such as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince or Yayoi Kusama. Now is the turn of the New-York based artist, Jeff Koons! His work-art is known for being extremely conceptual and with a kitsch style, and this new line in collaboration with Louis Vuitton is just another prove for that.
On the other hand, Louis Vuitton is one of the most popular and established haute couture houses of the entire world. Its recognisable and more or less classical style shifted to a more contemporary design during the last years (in part thanks to their collaboration with artists).
Today we talk to you about latest collaboration of luxury firm Louis Vuitton with Jeff Koons, which is definitely made for Art Lovers. The collection, titled under the name of Masters, is made of different bags, suitcases and wallets designed with the drawings of iconic artists such as Da Vinci, Titian, Rubens, Jean-Honoré Fragonard and Van Gogh.
The design of these bags and accessories could not be more original: The handle and the edges made of leather and painted with really colourful tones act as the canvas, while the rest of the bag is printed with the different paintings!
Between the selected bags for the collection are some of the iconic models of the firm such as the Speedy, the Keepall or the Neverfull one.
But the best of this collaboration is that Koons has reshaped Vuiton´s famous model Monogram adding his own name initials, something that is absolutely new for Louis Vuitton (it is the first time they let someone replace the original Initials – LV – at any of their bags).
Did you ever imagine to wear Da Vinci on your Designer handbag? Well, now you can (You just need to save a little bit!) because the collection went on sale April 28!
We are sure this new collection will be a really promising one, although we know it will have both lovers and detractors! What do you think? You adore it or you hate it?
Scroll up to the gallery to see a little preview of the new must-have bag collection among fashionistas! If you live in Barcelona and you want to take a look to Jeff Koons x Louis Vuitton handbag collection you should visit their store at Passeig de Gràcia, 80.
