Louis Vuitton has joined forces with iconic fashion editor Grace Coddington to create a capsule collection which is available now at its pop-up store in New York till November 12. The fancy retail space on Ninth Avenue showcases the animal-filled collaboration with the fashion editor for Louis Vuitton Cruise.
Louis Vuitton X Grace Coddington capsule collection of leather goods, accessories, shoes and ready-to-wear was designed alongside Nicolas Ghesquière and directly inspired by grace Coddington’s legendary love of animals. The illustrations that decorate this collection depict her Persians, Pumpkin and Blanket, as well as Nicolas Ghesquière’s dog, Léon. Leaping across an orange monogram print that reflects her signature flame-colored hair or a graphic monochrome, Grace’s illustrations represent a new chapter in the Louis Vuitton story: the Catogram.
The fashion editor’s creative charm is coupled with the exacting craftsmanship of the Louis Vuitton ateliers: handbags are lined with signed, mouse-printed canvas and every luggage tag meticulously edge-dyed. New Classics, such as the Petite Malle or the City Steamer, along with iconic bags like the Speedy and the Neverfull are given a fresh twist. Even Catogram lambswool blankets and nylon umbrellas are transformed into unique statements. Elegance is seen from a fresh perspective: clutch bags take the cartoon form of reclining cats or sweetly smiling dogs and silk pajamas become refined daywear.
The collection reflects Grace’s iconoclastic style and Ghesquière’s fascination with eccentricity and their mutual adoration of animals. Timeless luxury has been animated by a playful spirit and turned into a covetable collection of traveling companions.
