A Beautiful Collaboration ~ Christian Louboutin and Louis Vuitton

Christian Louboutin has collaborated with Louis Vuitton for the Celebrating Monogram campaign.

 Louis Vuitton emblem story

Louis Vuitton asked 5 image-makers, Christian Louboutin, Frank Gehry {another favourite}, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Newson, and Cindy Sherman  to contribute to the Celebrating Monogram project.  Through mediums of photography and moving image, each of the collaborators offered their vision of the iconic Monogram design.  
Canadian film maker and photographer Gordon Von Steiner created this short film featuring Christian Louboutin and Saskia de Braux, and his connection with his native city, Paris, for the 160 years of the House, the trolley.
His inspirations: For me, the bag had to be a combination of two DNAs: my own and Louis Vuitton’s. Then I really began to think about what would be a marriage between the two…”  Louboutin explains there is inspiration of Les Nabis in The Monogram design.  It was greatly influenced by the French artists at the turn of the twentieth century, who, in turn, were influenced and inspired by Japanese art.

The monogram Shopping Bags.  I’m smitten with both…

Shopping Trolley ~ Louboutin’s glamorous take on the market tote.  Louboutin said he pondered about something that would be unmistakably Parisian for him, and this is when the idea of the caddy came about. He said the bag is totally attached to the sight of somebody shopping in the markets of Paris –” I once tried to count the numbers of caddies I met in two hours at a Parisian market: 109!
