Just in time for the Christmas season, French luxury house Louis Vuitton has launched a stunning collection of scarves designed by New York-based Japanese creative Aiko. Featuring series of sumptuous graffiti-inspired prints, the scarves were launched in Tokyo and will be retailed at the Dover Street Market Ginza before hitting other LV boutiques later this month. 
Taking place simultaneously, Editor-in-Chief of French fashion magazine Purple Olivier Zahm debuted Foulard d’Artistes, his series of portraits of rising Japanese starlet Shiori Kutsana wearing various styles of Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection of scarves. The project coincided with an exhibition of Zahm’s photographs celebrating Purple’s 20th anniversary taking place at Tokyo’s Last Gallery. The show was delayed by two years due to the Tsunami and also the death of the gallery owner Fumihiro Hayashi.
The photographs and the scarves will be on display on the 3rd and 6th floors of the Dover Street Market until 8 January.
