This month we are thrilled to present a sneak preview into Louis Vuitton’s AW 14/15 ICONS collection. We recently sent two Lookbookers Tommy Lei and Martin Angulo of high-street style website My Belonging to experience firsthand the new product offerings (read their personal account here!).
As part of its ICONS campaign, Louis Vuitton will also be releasing reimagined interpretations of its monogram by six world-renown iconoclasts – Christian Louboutin, Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Newson and Rei Kawakubo. The monograms, each a result of the respective designer’s personal envisioning, will be affixed to a variety of select Louis Vuitton accessories, from canvas sneakers and dress shoes to luggage bags and handkerchiefs. The collaborative series, named The Icon and The Iconoclasts, as a celebration of monogram, integrates disparate disciplines in art, architecture and design to create a truly one-of-a-kind collection. Its intention is to showcase unique and varying perspectives of those considered best in their fields. Keep an eye out for its release to the public mid-October at select Louis Vuitton stores worldwide, accompanied by an exclusive New York launch party in November 2014!
