French luxury brand Louis Vuitton has always been famous for its collaborations with noted artists to bring a pop of artistic genius into fashion. Their latest collaboration manifests itself in the form of scarves for their Spring-Summer 2013 collection, which boasts of street art influences. Take your pick from the manga-inspired 4 Seasons Giant Square by US-based Japanese-born artist Aiko, which marries traditional motifs with pop art elements, or the abstract Script Stole by Californian graffiti writer Retna. He uses a mixture of ancient Incan and Egyptian hieroglyphics, Arabic, Hebrew, and Asian calligraphy and graffiti to express his vision.

The last one, Mosaic Square, has been created by graffiti artist duo (and twin brothers) Os Gemeos’ and their silk creation features a repetitive and dizzying pattern with brightly colored Sun and moon motifs.
These vibrant and eclectic scarves by Louis Vuitton will be available from January through February, and the price for these range from $580 (for the Mosaic Square) to S$1,120 (for the Script Stole). This is indeed the perfect way to usher in spring into your wardrobes.
