In recent years, Louis Vuitton has affirmed its engagement with the world of art through a series of high-profile collaborations with the most influential artists of our time. The second series of the Jeff Koons Masters collection builds on the well-established foundation, further exploring the intersection of fashion and art.
This month, Louis Vuitton will launch a second collection conceived with Jeff Koons. Recognized as one of the most influential living artists and based on the artist’s “Masters” series of paintings, this second chapter will debut on October 27th, which will include: Reclining Girl by François Boucher; Delightful Land by Paul Gauguin; Luncheon on the Grass by Edouard Manet; Water Lilies by Claude Monet; The Triumph of Pan by Nicolas Poussin (exclusive for Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme) and Ancient Rome by J.m.W. Turner.
This new set of paintings relates to Koons’ connection to each of the artists. “They are part of my DNA,” Koons says “When somebody walks down the street with this bag, or sits in a cafe with this bag,” Koons says of the Manet Neverfull, “it’s communicating a love of humanism.”
