Louis Vuitton Monogram

One cannot expect anything less than pure brilliance when you have six magnificent art and design icons come under one roof to pay tribute to the most powerful fashion brand’s famous monogram. The LV monogram was created by Georges Vuitton in the memory of his father Louis Vuitton who launched his luggage and trunk business in Paris during the 1850s. 

For the brand’s 160th anniversary, the executive vice president, the chairman’s daughter and the artistic director have invested in a project called ‘The Icon and the Iconoclasts: A Celebration of Monogram’. It brings together Christian Louboutin (shoe designer),  Karl Lagerfeld (creative designer of Chanel and Fendi), Rei Kawakubo (owner of Comme des Garçons), Cindy Sherman (performance artist), Frank Gehry (architect) and Marc Newson (product designer) to create a new series of bags and accessories with the LV monogram. Each piece in this collection has the reflection of its designer’s work. E.g., Louboutin’s creations have its Parisian influence with his signature touch of red. Further details on the inspirations and designs of the icons are on Louis Vuitton’s website.
