One of the most widely recognized figures in contemporary art, Koons has brought imagery from his long-standing ‘Gazing Ball’ paintings – a series of large-scale hand-painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products.
His re-creations of masterpieces by da Vinci, Titian, Rubens, Fragonard and Van Gogh have been transposed on to such iconic Louis Vuitton bags as the Speedy, the Keepall and the Neverfull.
Koons has also reconfigured the houses monogram logo to bear his initials, which is a first in the history of the French fashion house. Each bag also features a tag of the inflatable rabbit, a recognizable feature in Koons’ work as well as an inside, biography and portrait of the Master whose work has been recreated.
The collection will be available at select Louis Vuitton boutiques on April 28th
