Rei Kawakubo for Louis Vuitton

This fall, the designer of the brand Comme des Garçons – Rei Kawakubo – decided to make the big gender gap: after drawing an ephemeral line for H & M, she now sign a capsule collection of bags for Louis Vuitton…

Nonconformist, Rei Kawakubo still is. This did not however stop attempting adventures ranging from mass market to high-end leather goods. However, if the collaboration with H & M has more to stunt as the favorite, it is quite different from its association with Louis Vuitton. The creative evokes emotion with his earliest memories about the brand …

That was thirty years ago, when it moved to Japan, making the French luxury accessible to a generation of young women. Quality, know-how and the symbolism of the brand monogram ravished then definitely the heart of the young designer. Despite never having owned a section Vuitton, it has always put the brand on a pedestal.

So when the idea of ​​a collaboration Comme des Garçons / Louis Vuitton germ between Marc Jacobs and Adrian Joffe (the husband of Rei Kawakubo), this one is seduced by the concept, despite owning a diametrically opposite worlds that of the French brand. It would indeed be able to dive back into his memories and affix these luxury basics a little personal touch.

Having worked closely with Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince in the last editions ‘arty’ Monogram, Marc Jacobs left this time Rei Kawakubo only master on board.

However, despite having carte blanche, the designer did not yet launched a completely crazy interpretation Vuitton products. On the contrary, we feel within six pieces constituting the collection controlled creativity, finesse, honoring the classics of the brand. Moreover, Rei Kawakubo did not desire to change the monogram, which for her is equivalent to genuine Proust’s madeleine.

The fruits of this collaboration (limited edition) will unfortunately little or distributed in France, they are destined for Japan, to celebrate thirty years of the mark on the ground Nippon. Too bad, because the speedy mutant with multiple loops is more intriguing and tasty as Monogramouflage Murakami…
