Re-designing the Louis Vuitton monogram

Louis Vuitton's The Icon and the Iconoclasts capsule collection

by 04 June 2014


Louis Vuitton is celebrating its 160th anniversary this October and has gathered an amazing group of talents for an exceptional capsule collection. The French luxury giant Louis Vuitton's executive vice president, Delphine Arnault, has asked six top creatives - photographer Cindy Sherman, architect Frank Gehry and designers Marc Newson, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo and Karl Lagerfeld - to lend their interpretation of the signature LV monogram for a series of bags and luggage.

The anniversary collaborative project is aptly coined The Icon and the Iconoclasts, and the bags will only be available for a matter of months, and no doubt will be sold out within the first week of its launch

Priced between 2,000 to 4,000 euro, the bags will be available in mid-October. And its come at a good time, not long after the French label launched its first Cruise Collection.
