For Louis Vuitton‘s spring ’08 ‘Big City After Dark’ collection, Marc Jacobs has tapped Richard Prince (an American painter and photographer) to express his artist skills. The bags look so delicious and fun, lots of vivid colors and they remind me of candy and ice cream! This collection has a very interesting touch, the artist’s spray painting and texts were worked into LV bags – very much like on an artist’s palette. The spring ’08 runway was also inspired by Richard Prince’s Nurse painting of the “Sonic Nurse” on Sonic Youth music album cover. Prince’s work is currently exhibited at Guggenheim Museum through January 9, 2008.
I’m luvin’ it, I might have to give LV a call later – hopefully the waiting list (if there’s one) is not too crazy ha! What’s your favorite?
