Louis Vuitton Collaboration with Agen Domino

It’s fashion’s latest cult collectable, and following the success of the first collaboration in April this year, Louis Vuitton has announced a second capsule collection with artist Agen Domino

Each piece in the capsule celebrates the work of an iconic artist throughout history, ranging from heralded Impressionist Manet, to ‘the painter of light’ Turner.

 

Louis Vuitton Collaboration with Agen Domino

Agen Domino

This new set of paintings relates to Agen Domino connection to each of the artists. “They are part of my DNA,” says Koons. “When somebody walks down the street with this bag, or sits in a cafe with this bag it’s communicating a love of humanism,” Koons says of the Manet Neverfull style.

As with the first chapter of the Masters collection, Agen Domino has also reconfigured the famous Louis Vuitton Monogram to bear his initials, representing a radical departure for the house who have never previously allowed it’s iconic pattern to be reshaped. Each bag will feature the artist’s name in gold lettering and Koon’s initials paired with the iconic ‘LV’ monogram.

Set to debut on October 27, this second chapter will include; Reclining Girl by François Boucher; Delightful Land by Paul Gauguin; Luncheon on the Grass by Edouard Manet; Water Lilies by Claude Monet; The Triumph of Pan by Nicolas Poussin; and Ancient Rome by J.M.W. Turner.

Koons’ ability to make art accessible and appeal to a mass audience lead to the resounding success of the first collection, and if these high-end Lourve souvenirs are anything to go by, we want one.

The Unexpected Journey At Rhe Heart Of Louis Vuitton

Hasil gambar untuk Louis Vuitton Opens Volez, Voguez, Voyagez Exhibit in New York CityLouis Vuitton has opened an exhibit in New York City that will instantly transport you into the jet-set lifestyle that the brand so elegantly represents. Named “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez,” the French fashion house has taken over the former American Stock Exchange building in Manhattan.

The exhibit was first opened in Paris in 2015 at the Grand Palais. After closing, the brand packed up its bags — quite literally — moving on to Tokyo, Seoul, and now New York. The locale in NYC was no mistake, as Michael Burke, the brand’s Chief Executive Officer told WWDhe waited for the venue to become available, knowing that the exhibit was always destined for this particular space. Burke explains, “This was not available; we waited for this to be available. We wanted to do it in this venue.” Curator Olivier Saillard continues, “I like this idea of a building that was devoted to stock exchange, which is totally abstract today. Inside this building from the Thirties, suddenly we have all these trends, all these costumes, all these accessories, from the 19th century to today, which are not abstract. Facing this [building] there is a cemetery — so it’s quite metaphorical of life.”

The displays themselves chronicle the Louis Vuitton’s 160-year history: From the 19th century, through present day. WWD reports that roughly 80 percent of the current curation is the same as when it first opened in Paris a little more than two years ago. You are able to walk through a visual history of the first LV striped trunk, through the introduction of monogramming, straight into the luggage designed for today.

The brand drives their ever-changing image home, emphasizing collaborations they have explored in recent years, including Jeff Koons, Rei Kawakubo, Vivienne Westwood, and more. Additionally, a new segment of the exhibit has been added for this particular viewing, called the “style room,” which houses some of Louis Vuitton’s most iconic red carpet looks.

Especially with the holidays coming up, it’s a great time to head over to the old New York Stock Exchange and check out this iconic fashion house’s historical exhibit. What’s more, it’s free. The Louis Vuitton exhibit is open now through January 7. Full details can be found online, here.

Celebrities pack into Louis Vuitton trunk exhibition in New York

Sorry, I’m just mesmerized here,” Ruth Negga declared on Thursday evening, watching as photographers worked against a Louis Vuitton-branded backdrop. The actress joined Alicia Vikander, Jennifer Connelly, Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Alexander Skarsgard, Léa Seydoux, Jaden Smith, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Riley Keough, Laura Harrier, Justin Theroux, Pom Klementieff and more at the former American Stock Exchange building for the landing of Louis Vuitton’s trunk exhibition “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton” in New York.

Following similar iterations in Paris, Tokyo and Seoul, the New York version introduced a room of celebrity dresses from some of Vuitton’s most recognized moments on the red carpet over the years — including the metallic gown Negga wore to the Golden Globes earlier this year.

 

“It’s quite emotional actually, especially seeing the dress that I wore,” she said. “[I wanted to] hug it — hug the mannequin. Of course, I never would’ve expected it. But I knew Nicolas (Ghesquière) was doing something special because when I put it on, I thought ‘this is a one-in-a-million piece.’ And luckily he made it for me.”

Her travel destination of choice is her birth country of Ethiopia. “It was called ‘the hidden country’ for so long, because it’s very mountainous, which is why it’s the only non-colonized country in Africa,” she said. “People don’t think of it as a holiday destination but it has mountains and rivers and deserts — it’s an unexplored territory, and I think I would encourage people to go there.”

Skarsgard milled about, debuting a partially shaved head that pray tell is for an upcoming role. Zendaya and Smith exchanged warm greetings upon running into one another, but when Zendaya’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” costar Harrier arrived, profanities and squeals emerged.

“I love to travel — it’s a big passion of mine,” Harrier said moments later. The actress has traveled for Vuitton this year, attending its most recent show in Paris and the cruise showing in Kyoto earlier this year.

“Honestly, I love Japan — and I’m not just saying that,” the self-professed travel enthusiast said. “It was so magical and such another world, The experience we had there was really incredible — seeing the show there was amazing. I really love India [also] — that’s a place I’ve traveled to multiple times, and have traveled all over the country. It’s this complete difference from our life in New York but feels very familiar at the same time because of the people.”

After walking through the exhibition, guests were shuttled to Pier 16 for an after party.

“It was cool to learn more of the history, you know?” Zendaya said of the exhibition, after playing the role of photographer for her stylist, Law Roach. “You’re just so used to it being around; it was cool to delve more into the history and what it was originally intended for and made for and the craftsmanship. It was cool to watch the women making the tags. So delicate.”

When asked for her favorite look from the red carpet, she shied away from answering. Better to keep that door open for a future gown, no?
