Eliza Scarborough   |   04 - 12 - 2017

 

Earlier this year, Louis Vuitton presented a collaboration with Jeff Koons that saw a selection of its most beloved handbag styles printed with some of art’s most iconic images. Following its resounding success and cult covetability, Masters 2 has been launched with 6 additional artists, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, J.M.W.Turner, Claude Monet, Francois Boucher and Nicolas Poussin.

 

This second chapter of the collaboration with one of the world’s most influential living artists, Jeff Koons has situated this second series in the Masters collection within the heritage of Louis Vuitton, using the power of art to connect the present with a shared cultural history.

 

 

The Speedy, Neverfull and Keepall bags become canvases on which works by Masters are transposed, including Nymphaeus by Claude Monet, Ancient Rome: Agrippina with the Ashes of Germanicus by Joseph William Turner, Reclining Girl by François Boucher, Te Nave Nave Fenua  (Delightful Land) by Paul Gauguin and Luncheon on the Grass by Edouard Manet.

 

In addition, The Triumph of Pan by Nicolas Poussin will be available exclusively at the new Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme flagship.
