Louis Vuitton reveals its latest artist to collaborate with New York-based artist Jeff Koons in a new range of bags and accessories. The collection features Koons’ Gazing Ball paintings, a series of large-scale hand-painted reproductions of works by da Vinci, Titian, Rubens, Fragonard and Van Gogh, all Old Masters of the art scene.
These paintings have been transposed to iconic Louis Vuitton bags such as the Speedy, the Keepall and the Neverfull. The bags also feature a reconfiguration of the Louis Vuitton monogram bearing Koons’ initials, a first-ever for the Parisian house. Each bag carries a cute tag in the shape of the inflatable rabbit, a popular motif in many of Koons’ work throughout his 40-year career.
