Luxury house LOUIS VUITTON teams up with contemporary artist Urs Fischer for capsule collection that playfully reimagines brand’s Monogram’s flowers and initials. The Louis Vuitton x Urs Fischer collection features hand-drawn enlarged and distorted versions of Louis Vuitton‘s monogram, and it also includes a series of whimsical, animated characters.
Given the Louis Vuitton Monogram’s ubiquitous status, I chose to hand-draw it in a really spontaneous way, almost like sketching it from memory. – Urs Fischer
“Available in two colourways, black and red and black and white, this new Monogram is the collaboration’s key decorative motif, and features throughout the collection’s designs. In addition to ready-to-wear, accessories and shoes, seven special-edition bags – a Keepall, Cabas, Onthego, two Neverfulls, Speedys, Pochettes Accessoires, and a charming, hard-sided beauty case – use the Urs Fischer Monogram to particularly impressive effect thanks to an exquisite tuffetage treatment that uses velvet-like material to create extra texture and tactile relief.” – from Louis Vuitton
The collection will launch in Louis Vuitton stores worldwide in January 2021.
