Louis Vuitton: Holiday gifts

Louis Vuitton had released a limited edition collection of handbags and trunks designed by a group of influential people not only in the fashion industry but also in the field of art and architecture. This project is called Celebrating Monogram in which those designers and artists were asked to designed their own point of view upon the classic Louis Vuitton monogram motif. The multi-talented Karl Lagerfeld is feeling sporty this time and comes up with boxing theme collection. The red sole master, Christian Louboutin, put his signature red color and infamous stud, not as sharp as his Loubis, on the body of a bag. Rei Kawakubo always shock her audience, now by burning the front part of the bag to create some holes. If you love modern architecture, you should know Frank Gehry who does not only design the latest Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris but also a very beautiful and architectural box, my wish list. I do not know who is this Marc Newson but he creates a colorful backpacks that I love best. The last collaborator is Cindy Sherman, an American photographer and film director who creates a special trunk with her touch of characters.

This collaboration project is now displayed in all Louis Vuitton boutiques all over the world under the holday themed concept. There is a big gift box with its flowing long ribbons and balloons flying around. If the display is showing the Celebrating Monogram collection, the collaborator initial, like K.L. or C.L. or R.K. will appear on the top of the gift box. Beautiful, playful, with a touch of art, architecture, and futurist theme.
