LOUIS VUITTON has taped on the shoulder of Karl Lagerfeld and other creative icons to reimagine its famous monogram in a unique collaborative project called “The Icon and the Iconoclasts”.
As the brand explains, “Six renowned and creative iconoclasts, CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN, CINDY SHERMAN, FRANK GEHRY, KARL LAGERFELD, MARC NEWSON and REI KAWAKUBO have each been given carte blanche to create a personally inspired bag and/or a piece of luggage, using the iconic MONOGRAM while keeping with the brand’s spirit of innovation, collaboration and daring”.
This fashion designer and creative director of houses like Fendi or Chanel has revolutionised his field with his iconoclastic approach to fashion and its evolution.
Best known for her photographic portraits, Cindy Sherman has redefined many times the boundaries as an image-maker and filmmaker. She frequently presents herself as an icon, yet iconoclastically questions the role of women in the media.
Since establishing his architectural practice in LA in the 60s, Frank has produced some of the most iconic buildings of our era, like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
Known as one of the most influential industrial designers of his generation, Marc has worked in a wide range of industries, from aerospace and technology to furniture and fashion.
This self-taught fashion designer believes in no limits in fashion and has made her way in the industry as very respected rebel. Her firm Comme des Garçons, is a display of her philosophy, featured from graphics, advertising and store interiors to designing and making clothes and accessories.
He opened his first shoe boutique in Paris in 1991 and soon made his trademark red sole a symbol of seduction around the world. The brand has now 90 stores around the world but still maintains its spirit of fascination for the iconic lines of high heels.
These exclusive and limited editions bags will be available in selected LOUIS VUITTON stores worldwide from mid-October 2014.
We are very keen on seeing what these fascinating and diverse personalities come up with! Are you?
