After opening its lofty museum-like flagship store in Midtown Manhattan earlier this year, retail giant H&M and artist Jeff Koons are continuing their collaboration by producing a limited edition Balloon Dog leather cross-body bag. The bag features a printed design of the artist’s iconic $58.4 million “Balloon Dog” sculpture.
For a price much cheaper than the original Koon’s artwork, the H&M’s version of the Balloon Dog is priced at $49.50. However, this time the limited edition bag has a pink balloon dog (the previous edition sported a yellow dog). The bag features a zip at top, one inner compartment, and narrow, adjustable shoulder strap.
H&M will also curate an exhibit at its Fifth Avenue New York flagship store. Jeff Koons: A Retrospective will travel from New York to the Pompidou Centre in Paris, where the exhibition will be seen from November 26-April 27.
The bag will be available to purchase from December 10, exclusively in the H&M store at the Champs-Élysées in Paris, or online via hm.com.
