Louis Vuitton launches tie-up with Takashi Murakami

Louis Vuitton launches tie-up with Takashi Murakami

Designer Louis Vuitton is to launch a spring/summer collaboration with Japanese Neo-Pop artist Takashi Murakami.

The capsule range, called Cosmic Blossom, features Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram flowers on bright, block colour backgrounds. Smiling flower faces sit alongside traditional Japanese pictorial motifs. The collection has a very 1970’s Carnaby Street, flower power-esque feel to it…perfect for those carefree summer days.

The range consists of leather goods, ready-to-wear and accessories; including t-shirts, holdalls, scarves, bandanas, bikinis and shoes.

The collection is fronted by British model Daisy Lowe and the campaign was shot in Miami.

Daisy said:“Louis Vuitton is an amazingly well made, classic, chic and beautiful brand.

“The shoot was so much fun, I always love being in the Miami sun and the team were so lovely.

“I have been a huge fan of Takashi Murakami work for a long time, his work with Louis Vuitton is so playful and exciting.”

The collection will be available in Louis Vuitton stores from April 15, see the website for your nearest store.
