Six renowned iconoclasts have each designed a personally-inspired bag and a piece of luggage using the label’s iconic monogram.

Christian Louboutin, Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Newson and Rei Kawakubo team up with Louis Vuitton on The Icon and The Iconoclasts project.

This diverse and remarkable group has created an amazing and unique collection. Each of the six iconoclasts has created a personally-inspired bag or a piece of luggage using Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram to celebrate  both the monogram and 160 years of Louis Vuitton.

The ‘Icon and the Iconoclasts’ project was initiated by Delphine Arnault (Executive Vice President of Louis Vuitton) and Nicolas Ghesquière (Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections).

"We have assembled an amazing group of talents - geniuses, I would say. Each one is among the best in his or her field," Arnault told WWD. "The monogram is at the centre of our house, so we celebrate it every day. But we thought this project was really special because the personalities we chose are fascinating and diverse.”

The details of the project are currently a secret. The limited edition collaborative collection will arrive in mid October 2014 in selected Louis Vuitton stores worldwide. The bags are priced between  €2,000 and €4,000.

The Icon and The Iconoclasts: A Celebration of Monogram launch event will take place in New York City on November 7th, 2014.
