Now here come the collaborations to end all collaborations. Nicolas Ghesquiere and Delphine Arnault are launching a new project for Louis Vuitton called The Icon and The Iconoclasts, wherein designers, artists, and architects including Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Cindy Sherman, Rei Kawakubo, Frank Gehry, and Marc Newson will put their own spin on the monogrammed bags and luggage (plus a punching bag by Karl!).
Remember when Marc Jacobs had a similar project during his tenure at LV? Collaborations with Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Yayoi Kusama all ring a bell? They all had different interpretations of the LV monogram. This time, however, they say Nicolas will bring the tie-ups with the creatives to a whole new level. Anyone ready to splurge for this? Make sure to prepare a few thousands of dollars as prices will range between $2,725 and $5,450.
