It’s raining cats and dogs for French luxury brand Louis Vuitton and Grace Coddington. The collaboration features a capsule collection of leather goods, accessories, shoes and ready-to-wear, designed by Coddington and the creative director of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière.
A former model and the creative director at large at Vogue, Coddington is known for creating complex and dramatic photoshoots — but she’s also famous for being a huge cat-lover. For the collaboration, Louis Vuitton’s iconic brown LV pattern is adorned with Coddington’s own illustrations of her beloved cats, Pumpkin and Blanket, and Ghesquière’s dog, Léon.
Dubbed the Catogram collection, the handbags are lined with signed mouse-printed canvas and the Cats On Leather collection includes a colorful menagerie across natural leather. There are also bag tags and clutch bags that are designed in the shape of cats and dogs.
In celebration of this collaboration, Louis Vuitton will open a New York pop-up store from October 26 to 12.
