Louis Vuitton Collaborates with Famed Artist Jeff Koons on The Masters Collection
After the incredible buzz about Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Supreme, the iconic French fashion house is back at it again, with a partnership that continues its synergy with the art world. For its latest limited accessories assortment, it is working with none other than famed pop artist Jeff Koons.
Inspired by Koons’s “Gazing Ball” series, the names and artworks of Da Vinci, Van Gogh, Titian, Rubens, and Fragonard are transposed onto the house’s timeless silhouettes including the Neverfull, Speedy, Keepall and more. It’s also another first for the brand as their classic LV logo was adapted to include Koons’s initials.
Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Stephen Sprouse are some of the big-name artists Louis Vuitton has worked with in the past, thus the Koons announcement is no surprise. Retailing from $585 to $4,000, our coins will definitely be on the line for this one. They’re certainly way cheaper than an actual piece of art from Koons.
This is also just the first stage of the collaboration between the house and Koons, thus we cannot wait to see what comes next. Mark your calendars for April 28th, as that is when the collection launches. But it will not be available online, so also figure out where your closest Louis Vuitton store is located!
