Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Louboutin to collaborate with Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s new creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, has invited six visionaries from the worlds of fashion, art and design to reinterpret the brand’s iconic monogram.

Stepping up to the plate for The Icon And The Iconoclasts project is Chanel and Fendi creative director Karl Lagerfeld, Comme des Garcons founder Rei Kawakubo, French shoe designer Christian Louboutin, photographer Cindy Sherman, architect Frank Gehry and industrial designer Marc Newson.

They have each been given ‘carte blanche’ to create a bag or piece of luggage which will go on sale from mid-October in a very select number of Louis Vuitton stores this year. Described as ‘limited-edition’ and ‘very exclusive’, prices will range from £1,625 to £3,250.
