News: Louis Vuitton

CLASH OF THE ICONS. What happens when iconoclasts collaborate? Ask Louis Vuitton. To celebrate its 160th anniversary, the revered brand is launching a special project named “The Icon and Iconoclast,” in which it recruits six renowned and creative iconoclasts: fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, photographer and filmmaker Cindy Sherman, architect Frank Gehry, shoe designer Christian Louboutin, product designer Marc Newson and fashion designer Rei Kawakubo.


Each is given creative freedom to explore, innovate, redesign and even redefine the iconic monogramed range of bags, trunks and luggage which will be available from mid-October this year. The initiators of the project, Delphine Arnault and Nicolas Ghesquière, believe that these individuals represent the best in their respective fields.
