Louis Vuitton gets top marks when it comes to playing well with others. From Stephen Sprouse to Yayoi Kusama, a diverse range of artists have collaborated with the French design house over the years to revamp their classic silk scarves and logo’ed leather goods. Back in April, the brand released the latest in its long line of artist alliances: a series of stylish art history lessons taught by Jeff Koons in the form of purses printed with the work of Old Masters da Vinci, Fragonard, and Rubens. Following the success of Louis Vuitton’s Koons collaboration, the house recently announced a second edition of Old Masters handbags featuring paintings by Van Gogh, Monet, Manet, Gaugin, Boucher, Turner, and Poussin on timeless Vuitton styles such as the Speedy 30, Neverfull tote, and Zippy wallet.
The Masters II collection drops on October 27th. If you find yourself wincing at its several-thousand-dollar price tags, just think of how much you’ll save compared to the value of these masterpieces in painting form!
