Agata Belcen and Nell Kalonji suggest a contemporary update for the 1970s shade, styled on Grace Bol and photographed by Jackie Nickerson for AnOther Magazine A/W17

The colour brown was ubiquitous during the 1970s – injected into interiors, cars, clothes, and everything in between. The popularity of such a drab hue might have been cultural response to the technicolour psychedelia of the preceding decade; corduroy trousers, suede fringing, leather jackets and polyester shirts taking on tones of tan, beige, mahogany and burnt umber in a revolution against brighter hues.

Given its reputation as the black of the 1970s, making brown work in a contemporary wardrobe is no mean feat. Here, as photographed for AnOther Magazine A/W17 by Jackie Nickerson, Agata Belcen and Nell Kalonji explore.

On View: Louis Vuitton X Jeff koons

PHOTOGRAPHY: THERESE ALDGARD

Louis Vuitton and Jeff Koons have collaborated on a series of luxury handbags, paying homage to some of the most iconic artwork in history.

This article appears in the pages of V110, on newsstands now. Jeff Koons and Louis Vuitton’s first round of wearable artworks, dubbed the Masters Collection, was unveiled in the spring. For the pieces, the artist referenced his controversial Gazing Ball paintings. Known for their glistening blue reflective spheres and precise reproductions of masterpieces, Koons’s works and the LV bags they inspired are a thoroughly modern riff on some of the most important moments in art history. In this latest variation of Koons-tweaked Vuitton bags, the gazing ball theme is utilized yet again, appearing in the reflective type treatment. And while...

Much like craftsmanship and travel are ingrained in the house’s rich heritage, art is also key to Vuitton’s monogrammed DNA. There’s the eye-catching artist collaborations, including those by Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and most recently Jeff Koons. There’s also the Frank Gehry-designed Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, an architectural sculpture in itself. The space is currently housing “Being Modern: MoMA in Paris,” which explores MoMA’s history of collection, highlighting works from the likes of Alexander Calder, Jasper...

Louis Vuitton Collaborates With Photographer Solve Sundsbo For Fashion Eye

LVFE-2017-BRITISH-COLUMBIA-1

The famed photographer travels to a far-off destination.

Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has been celebrating the art of travel with a series of photography books lensed by the industry’s most captivating image-makers who are traveling to new horizons and photographing the exquisite beauty of the great outdoors. This season, Vuitton is adding five new titles to the Fashion Eye series, and V is shining a light on the photographs taken by the Norweigan-born Solve Sundsbo who masterfully delivers a fresh look upon the immense territories of British Columbia. For thirteen seasons, Sundsbo’s love of skiing has brought him back to this Canadian province on the edge of the Pacific to the coast down to the snow-capped slopes of the Sellkirk Mountains—an...

Logomania, The 1990s Trend That’s Returned With A Vengeance

As demonstrated by the A/W17 collections, branding is back to assert its place in our wardrobes

The logomania trend, whilst rooted in the excess of the 1980s, truly came into its own during the following decade, as a sartorial response to the US economic boom of the 1990s. Whilst branding initially found its place in fashion as a mechanism to denote prosperity and status, it soon became an aesthetic trope in itself, with Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior logos emblazoned on It bags, splashed across sweaters and seductively printed on underwear. Post-recession, the desire to wear labels in such a blatant manner waned, and a quiet minimalism began to dominate the runways. This season, however, the logo returned with a vengeance...

THE EXTERIOR FACADE OF MAISON LOUIS VUITTON VENDÔME, ORIGINALLY DESIGNED BY JULES-HARDOUIN MANSART, THE ARCHITECT OF THE PALACE OF VERSAILLES.

Located at 2 Place Vendôme, the grand 18th-century building was where the brand's story began over 160 years ago. It was here—below two hôtel particuliers and behind a facade designed by Jules-Hardouin Mansart, the architect of the Palace of Versailles—that a young Louis Vuitton opened his first store. Today, the address has come back to life with the help of architect Peter Marino.

Kendall Jenner Accessorized This Metallic Look with a Literal Work of Art

BACKGRIDKATIE BUCKLEITNER

IDK how Da Vinci would feel about this.

On Monday night, Kendall Jenner was spotted in perhaps her ~sparkliest~ outfit yet — an asymmetric silver gown featuring a plunging neckline and SUPER high slit. She showed off her long legs in matching metallic high heels and used her handy Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons "Da Vinci" bag to prevent any serious wardrobe malfunctions. Do you think Da Vinci knew that centuries later after painting the iconic Mona Lisa, that none other than Kendall Jenner would be wearing his painting on a Louis Vuitton bag? Yeah, probably not.

Jeff Koons’ Second Collaboration With Louis Vuitton Is Literally a Work Of Art

LOUIS VUITTON

Have you ever spent a whole day admiring your favorite paintings at a museum only to be disappointed with the gift shop's lackluster offerings? There must be a better way to wear one's love of fine art than a canvas tote bags, right? This conundrum was remedied last spring when Jeff Koons crafted his "Masters" collection of bags with famous paintings for Louis Vuitton. Graphic and unexpected, the team-up was so popular that the storied French brand has connected with the contemporary artist again for round two.
