Louis Vuitton has a long history of pairing with stars of the art world to create artwork we’re proud to carry; in fact, they basically invented it. Louis Vuitton’s most recent collaboration is with streetwear kings Supreme and fine artist Jeff Koons. Just like artwork, these collaboration pieces increase in value–often selling at or above their original retail price for years after their original release due to their exclusive nature. We’ve turned heads with a Louis Vuitton Graffiti Neverfull and captured hearts with the Takashi Murakami Cherry Blossom Papillon, but which cult art collaborations are our favorites?
Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami wanted to give some freshness and cheerfulness to the iconic monogram pattern–and the Cherry Blossom collection was planted. Takashi Murakami’s cherry blossom flower became a hallmark of his work, representing Murakami’s Japanese heritage and resembles the Kawaii-pop-art style he was known for. The Cherry Blossom collection featured the LV all-over logo print with the flower design, featuring a tiny smiley face at the center. Unlike most other limited edition collections, Louis Vuitton never produced a Speedy in the Cherry Blossom print.Signature dark and light brown Louis Vuitton “LV” monogram bag incorporating Takashi Murakami’s cherry blossoms with smiling faces; trimmed with gold-plated studs and light brown leather bow at closure with gold-plated lock engraved with “LV”; with keys, leather hangtag engraved “Louis Vuitton Paris,” and brown flannel bag cover printed with “LV.”
This special LOUIS VUITTON pochette bag is from the brand’s collection with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. The brown signature monogram canvas has been given a cute twist by Murakami with the addition of a pink cartoon cheery blossom print. A collector’s piece that you’ll cherish forever
