First LVook: Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture

Wow, I've learned something already from The Bag Lounge . A new Louis Vuitton book is slated to be released this coming September 2009. Entitled Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture it can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com. I just ordered my copy. LVoe it!!! Here's the product description: "Luxury and art have never been more closely linked than they are in these early years of the twenty-first century. Virtually all the world’s major luxury houses have associated themselves with contemporary art through sponsorships, commissions, or foundations, and these points of exchange nourish the increasingly symbiotic relationship between fashion, art, and other design disciplines. Of all modern luxury brands, Louis Vuitton can claim to maintain the richest and most varied associations with the world of art. Included in this volume are Louis Vuitton’s important collaborations with an elite group of artists, architects, designers, and photographers, such as Jun Aoki, Shigeru Ban, Vanessa Beecroft, Olafur Eliasson, Zaha Hadid, David LaChapelle, Jean Larivière, Annie Leibovitz, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Stephen Sprouse, James Turrell, Inez Van Lamsweerde, and Vinoodh Matadin. The book is structured as a seductive anthology of the house’s most visible collaborations. Critical essays examine and position Louis Vuitton’s patronage—under the guidance of Artistic Director Marc Jacobs—during one of the most fertile periods of contemporary art and design."

  2. This particular Multicolore was part of the "Eye Series" that was designed by Takashi Murakami in collaboration with Louis Vuitton for the Spring Summer 2003 Collection. It has become one of the most iconic images from LV and Murakami. Items that went into production had clever names: Eye Dare You, Eye Love You, Eye Need You and Eye Miss You. They were all bags plus one scarf. Thanks for visiting my blog.
