Famous Paintings on Bags from New Collection of Lous Vuitton

Louis Vuitton launches a new range of handbags and accessories designed by American artist Jeff Koons. The ‘Masters’ Collection remixes the iconic artworks of the Old Masters and presents them in a way that encourages new interpretations. If the Da Vinci is sure an iconic my favorites are the Van Gogh and the Rubens collection. Koons has brought imagery from his long-standing ‘Gazing Ball’ paintings – a series of large scale hand painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products. Great artworks from Leonardo Da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ to Peter Paul Rubens’ ‘Tiger Hunt’ create a canvas on the bags for Koons to adorn the LV monogram, flower shapes, metallic lettering, and a bunny rabbit bag charm.

Louis Vuitton Escale Worldtime ‘The World is a Dancefloor’

Paul Pettavino, the 19 year old son of Only Watch founder Luc Pettavino, suggested a wristwatch with a chequered dance floor motif, resulting in Louis Vuitton Escale Worldtime “The World is a Dancefloor”. Based on the Escale Worldtime, this unique edition for the Only Watch charity auction is adorned with hand-painted, multicoloured squares on the almost psychedelic dial. All of the dial components are hand-painted, including the two discs that indicate the hours and minutes. The white gold case measures 41mm in diameter, with all the functions of the watch controlled via the crown, hence the lack of buttons on the case. The movement was created by La Fabrique du Temps, a movement specialist now owned by Louis Vuitton. It’s self-winding with a mystery rotor, visible on the back. The rim of the rotor spins around the silkscreened “LV” logo on the sapphire crystal, with no apparent connection to the movement, hence the “mystery” moniker. The rim of the case back is engraved “Only Watch 2015” and “No. 1/1”, since it is a unique piece. The Escale Worldtime “The World is a Dancefloor” is accompanied by one of Louis Vuitton’s signature trunks in graphite Damier canvas with a hand-painted dance floor motif on its lid. All the proceeds from the auction, which takes place on November 7, 2015, will go towards research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy, an illness that afflicts Paul Pettavino and the impetus behind Luc’s creation of Only Watch.

“Larger Than Life” Series for Louis Vuitton by Vincent Bousserez

Luxury brand Louis Vuitton recently partnered with Paris-based photographer Vincent Bousserez to create this whimsical set of photos. Bousserez thought up an innovative way to emphasize the luxury brand’s product features like zippers, clasps, buckles and detailed stitching. With “Larger than Life,” the photographer created a series where miniature people are seen polishing sunglasses, climbing up onto bag zippers, or playing golf under the LV logo. As Louis Vuitton states, it’s “a fantasy daily life where golf players enjoy a night session on a monogram course or a couple who walk down a quite unexpected aisle.” Take a look!

Around the world with Louis Vuitton

These stylish photos are part of editorial project between Louis Vuitton, In fashion magazine and Monica Barreneches Atelier. Inspired in Vuitton’s 2.011 city guides, who are illustrated by the Cuban artist Ruben Toledo, we took six of the cities and we created new vintage traveling posters as a fashion spread for the magazine. For this project Mónica Barreneche atelier invited the Colombian illustrator Carolina Amaya who was responsible for the graphic intervention of the photographs.
