Luxury French fashion brand Louis Vuitton has collaborated with contemporary American artist Jeff Koons on a new limited-edition range of accessories. The Masters collection celebrates the works of major artists, including Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s Girl with a Dog and Vincent van Gogh’s Wheat Field with Cypresses. Koons’s masterful reproductions of these artworks feature on the brand’s cult Speedy, Neverfull and Keepall bags, reinterpreting the iconic paintings for a new audience.
Each bag is emblazoned with the name of the artist and also showcases Koons’s reconfiguration of the Louis Vuitton monogram which bears his own initials – the first time in the brand’s history that it has allowed its world-famous motif to be modified. The bags are finished with a rabbit-shaped leather tag in a tribute to Koons’s stainless steel 1986 Rabbit sculpture, one of the artist’s most celebrated works.
As well as appearing on bags, the famous works of art have also been transposed on to Louis Vuitton shawls and silk squares, and these pieces would make the perfect souvenir of your time in Paris this spring.
The Masters collection launches in-store on 28 April 2017.
