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.

gallery-1506332308-vuitton
Louis Vuitton is once again the world's most valuable fashion brand, based on its financial performance and ability to both influence customer choice and command premium prices.

Continuing in fashion's globe-trotting cruise collections, Nicolas Ghesquière staged Louis Vuitton's Resort 2018 show with a truly spectacular runway in Kyoto, Japan.
Held at the picturesque, I.M. Pei-designed Miho Museum, Louis Vuitton unveiled its new collection atop a metal bridge overlooking the Shigaraki mountains. Models entered through a metal tunnel and walked across a suspension bridge, making for a never-before-seen runway moment.

Six Things To Note From The Louis Vuitton Resort Show

Paying Tribute To Yamamoto
 

In Louis Vuitton's 2018 cruise collection artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière paid tribute to emblematic Japanese designer and artist Kansai Yamamoto, famous for having made an extensive number of David Bowie's costumes but also for the being the first Japanese designer to show in Paris and for reinventing the kimono in avant-garde form for a modern audience. Yamamoto especially created icons and symbols to decorate new accessories and leather goods.

The Setting Was Everything
 

Three-quarters of the Miho Museum, where the resort extravaganza was staged, is underground and was designed by I. M. Pei, the same architect who conceived the Louvre's Grand Pyramid in Paris.

Jaden Smith And Sasha Lane’s Sky-High Ponytails Are a Win At Louis Vuitton

00-holding-sasha-jaden-lv
Despite the sheer number of stars that turned up at the Louvre tonight to see Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2017 collection—Michelle Williams! Sophie Turner!—one front row pair drew the lion’s share of camera flashes with a scene-stealing hair strategy that may or may not have been planned: Jaden Smith and Sasha Lane, who arrived at the show with mirror-image high ponytails.

Smith’s strands were similarly twisted upward but strategically arranged to fall over his face in a deceptively casual manner. Apart, they struck front row gold; together, they made...
