RICHARD PRINCE LV BAG

Artist and photographer Richard Prince has designed a new Louis Vuitton bag to coincide with his first major U.K. solo exhibition this summer at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Prepare yourself for a major waitlist as only 50 limited-edition, signed and numbered ostrich and canvas ‘Jamais’ bags have been produced. The handbag features a blue and red-colored, smudged take on the classic Louis Vuitton monogram.

   
 
The purse will be sold exclusively at the Louis Vuitton Sloane Street store in London during Prince’s solo “Continuation” show June 26 to September 7. A portion of the proceeds from the bags sales, which will retail for 9,000 pounds (approximately $17,800), will go to the Serpentine.

Prince and Vuitton’s artistic director Marc Jacobs have previously collaborated on a line of handbags for the fashion house’s spring/summer 2008 collection.
