Louis Vuitton reveals the second chapter of their collaboration with artist Jeff Koons.

 

The new Masters series of accessories will include Reclining Girl by François Boucher; Delightful Land by Paul Gauguin; Luncheon on the Grass by Edouard Manet; Water Lilies by Claude Monet; The Triumph of Pan by Nicolas Poussin (exclusive for Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme) and Ancient Rome by J.m.W. Turner.

 

Launching on October 27, Koons spoke of his connection to each artist and added: “When somebody walks down the street with this bag (Manet Neverfull) or sits in a cafe with this bag, it’s communicating a love of humanism.”

 

In addition to elements from this new Monogram that have been crafted by Louis Vuitton in metal and placed on the exterior of the bag, as has Koons’ own signature, each piece will carry a tag in the shape of the inflatable rabbit as a tribute to contemporary artists work throughout his 40-year career.

 

Fashion and art have often crossed paths and Louis Vuitton has been known to work with leaders in their field such as Stephen Sprouse, Yayoi Kusama, Cindy Sherman and Daniel Buren. Watch the video below to learn more about the latest venture.
