This year marks Louis Vuitton's 160th anniversary, and it's celebrating by letting a couple other well-known designers do a little work for them. The French Fashion house has tapped Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, Frank Ghery, Cindy Sherman and Marc Newsom to design bags for Louis Vuitton, emblazoned, of course, with the brand's signature "LV" logo.
The collection, called "The Icon and the Iconoclasts," is a limited-edition range available this October, priced between $2,725 and $5,450. While we won't have a full look at the collection until closer to its release, Louis Vuitton executive vice president Delphine Arnault says that Lagerfeld designed a punching bag (complete with a secret compartment at the bottom), while Newson created a men's carryall. Ghery's design is said to be extremely embellished with "a small mirror, hand-drawn LV initials and angular hardware."
Mid-October can't come soon enough. The bags are admittedly pricey, but it will certainly be fascinating to see other designers' take on the iconic Vuitton logo.
