Louis Vuitton and Jeff Koons’ partnership has yielded a second installment of their Masters Collection, and already we’re waiting for a third. This time around, the survey keeps largely to romantics and impressionists, although a couple of post-impressionist radicals sneak in along the way.
The first collection included classic LV handbags featuring depictions of art from the likes of Fragonard, Rubens, Titian, Van Gogh, and Da Vinci. This second collection again combines iconic works of art with LV’s staple canvas bags and other accessories, but focuses on a more limited timeline.
The new collection features art from Manet, Monet, Gauguin, Turner, and Boucher. This means classic art fans can now own an LV bag with Monet’s “Water Lilies” or Gauguin’s “Delightful Land.” Koons describes Monet’s work as “one of the most beautiful, sensual images of nature,” making it the perfect selection for an LV handbag.
Other art pieces depicted in the new collection include Manet’s “Luncheon on the Grass,” Turner’s “Ancient Rome,” and Boucher’s “Reclining Girl.”
Each handbag is accented with one of the classic painter’s names in addition to the LV monogram motif, the LV logo, and Koons’ initials.
Bag charms start at $585, the handbags themselves range up to $4,000.
