If only art could be worn or carried in tow! Well, making it happen for us is Louis Vuitton with the Capucine bags! The marquee recently launched the fourth edition of the Artycapucine series in association with six artists — Amélie Bertrand, Daniel Buren, Peter Marino, Park Seo-Bo, Ugo Rondinone, and Kennedy Yanko.
Kennedy Yanko’s version features a crumpled effect with a removable handle and a pouch underneath while Park Seo-Bo’s bag transplants one of his paintings onto the canvas of the Capucine which he has created in collaboration with his grandson.
On the other hand, Ugo Rondinone has fused two recurring icons in his work — clowns and rainbows to create a unique artwork for the bag and Peter Marino has stayed true to his love for architecture by creating his version inspired by a medieval box he discovered in Venice.
Lastly, we have Daniel Buren’s creation which features vertical strips with handles that have been remodeled into a graphic black-and-white circle, and Amélie Bertrand’s version is inspired by the stunning sunsets of her hometown, Cannes – reflected with bold ombré shades on the bag.
Each Artycapucine comes in limited numbers of 200 and is listed/available on the brand’s official website and select stores worldwide. Care to get one of them?
