RICHARD PRINCE FOR LOUIS VUITTON



source: http://www.style.com/


After Takashi Murakami, Louis Vuitton collaborates with the artist Richard Prince who created some funky accessories for Vuitton's Spring 2008 Ready-to-wear collection. I appreciate the increasing trend of artists working for fashion labels because thereby art becomes more involved in our everyday lifes.


Nach Takashi Murakami holt sich Louis Vuitton nun wiedermal einen Künstler ins Haus: Richard Prince entwarf originelle Accessoires für Vuittons Spring 2008 Ready-To-Wear Kollektion. Mir gefällt diese spartenübergreifende Zusammenarbeit zwischen Künstlern und Modelabels, weil auf diesem Wege die Kunst verstärkt Teil unseres Alltags wird.
