Untitled #1070
In celebration of 160 years of Louis Vuitton, the French maison has asked six renowned artists to redesign the iconic symbol LV with their own, unique way.

The top fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Newson, Christian Louboutin and Rei Kawakubo, famous photographer Cindy Sherman and the architect Frank Gehry participate in the team project «The Icon and the Iconoclasts», in which everyone will draw their own interpretation of the trade mark of the French brand, and then to “dress” a collection of handbags.

The collection will be released in mid-October and despite the fact that each bag will vary in 2000-4000 eurosthe demand is expected eminently high.

“When we talked with Nicolas Ghesquière about the extraordinary talents we would like to approach we simply went to those who are among the best in their fields,” says Delphine Arnault, executive vice President of Louis Vuitton, who came up with the idea alongside Ghesquière.

She added: “We were interested in people who work with their minds and their hands. I thought it was so interesting – and fun! – to have all of these different points of view on the Monogram. It is inspiring to see how they envision things, to see their perspectives. This is a group of geniuses.”
