'The Icon and The Iconoclasts' is the title of a new collaborative project with Louis Vuitton which sees the brand teaming up with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Cindy Sherman, Marc Newson, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo and Frank Gehry.
The collection is in celebration of Vuitton's 160th anniversary and will be available in mid-October for a matter of months. No doubt the entire fashion world shall be selling their limbs in order to get hold of one of these rare treasures, the pricing is around 2000-4000 euros and will no doubt escalate when placed on eBay.
Delphine Arnault, Louis Vuitton's executive vice president, told WWD:
"We have assembled an amazing group of talents- geniuses, I would say. Each one is among the best in his or her field."
The collaborators are all given the task to give their own interpretation of the Louis Vuitton monogram, known globally and adored by many. Personally, I'm looking forwards to seeing what Sherman, Lagerfeld and Kawakubo come up with. This should be a collaboration that will be adored for years to come.
