Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière and stylist Grace Coddington have collaborated to create a collection of whimsical bags and accessories inspired by their pets. The new capsule collection showcases Grace Coddington’s legendary love of animals, depicting her Persians cats, Pumpkin and Blanket. It also features Nicolas Ghesquière’s dog, Léon.
Coddinton’s illustrations adorn some of Louis Vuitton’s leather bags. There are fun cat motifs on the Speedy, the Neverfull and the Petite Boite Chapeau styles and as a special touch, the handbags are lined with signed, mouse-print canvas. The fresh take on the classic bags are a nod to Grace’s iconoclastic style and the bags will make great collector’s pieces.
Those who wish to purchase one of the Louis Vuitton x Grace Coddington handbags or one of the other highly covetable accessories from the collection should make a beeline to the exclusive Louis Vuitton pop-up space in Selfridges. Open until 16 January 2019, the stylish space provides the perfect opportunity to browse the new collection and immersive yourself in the Instagrammable world of the brand.
