On the heels of Jeff Koons’ “Gazing Ball” series, in which an iridescent blue sphere was placed was placed in front of repainted versions of various masterworks, classic paintings are getting the Koons treatment yet again. As part of a new collaboration with Louis Vuitton set to be unveiled at the Louvre tonight (the same venue where Nicolas Ghesquière staged his Fall show), the partnership will see the French luxury house’s iconic bags—yes, that includes the Speedy—redesigned with five of the most iconic artworks in history, from Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” to Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s “Girl with Dog.”
In line with Koons’ signature kitsch, each bag is adorned with gold block letters spelling out the artist’s name, and the leather detail around the handle has been reconfigured as the New York-based contemporary artist’s signature bunny. What’s more, each bag also boasts Koons’ initials in the same style as Louis Vuitton’s signature “LV” monogram—a first for the house. Inside each is a brief description and portrait of the artist.
