We’re used to collaborations, but this is something else!
In a world where almost every celebrity has a capsule collection with a brand, a collaboration with a modern artist is somehow out of the ordinary. This is why we are very glad about the new pieces created by Louis Vuitton and NY based artist, Koons. (We’re happy about the principle, not the actual look of the pieces).
The collection, titled Masters, consists of handbags and accessories with reinterpreted classic designs of Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Peter Paul Rubens, Jean-Honoré Fragonard and Vincent Van Gogh.
“I believe that these bags are art,” Koons says for Harper’s Bazaar. The capsule includes Vuitton Speedy bags, chain bags and Palm Springs backpacks. The collection will hit selected Vuitton stores on April 28th, with prices ranging from 585 to as much as 4000 US dollars.
