Especially since the turn of the millennium, there have been increasing cooperations that give the French traditional company Louis Vuitton fresh ideas. Over the years, a tradition has developed, self -recurring collaborations with designers and artists take place. Over time, a pool of canva's variants has also been created, which cannot always be assigned directly at first glance. Hence a list of the most unusual results of Louis Vuitton Cooperations over the past few years: 

1st 100th birthday Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas (1996):

Already in the 1990s, such as Vivienne Westwood, designers designed their own designs for the Louis Vuitton house. Your BUM BAG was part of a cooperation on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram canvas. Also participated IIn 1996 Azzedine Alaïa for this anniversary with its unusual leopard creation of a classic Louis Vuitton Alma. Continued to control Manolo Blahnik, Romeo Gigli, Helmut Lang, Isaac Mizrahi and Sybilla this project designs. The pockets of the collection are characterized by the wealth of ideas and a special joke. So Westwood's design was worn at the buttocks. The design by the Spanish artist Sybilla was the perfect accessory for cyclists: in the backpack that was conceived by her, an extendable umbrella found its place.

2. Louis Vuitton X Steven Sprouse (2001 & 2009):

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Graffiti bags that were created in collaboration with designer Steven Sprouse, celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2021. On this occasion, the British Vogue published an obituary for the now deceased artist Steven Sprouse and his rebellious monogran canvas variant. The concept of this logo hack does not appear old for 20 years And is still one of the most aggressive and most contrasting of its shape. The graffiti monogram canvas was used in several Louis Vuitton models and was offered in different color variants. Still surprisingly fresh! In 2009 another posthumous cooperation took place, this time overlaid and adorned a rose print the classic monogran pattern.

3. Louis Vuitton X Julie Verhoeven (2002):

In addition to her creations for Louis Vuitton and Versace, the British artist Julie Verhoeven is primarily known as an illustrator for books. Your style is often described as "Rock & Roll meets Rainbow" And likes to create retro references to the pop culture of the 1970s. The Louis Vuitton bags of this cooperation also wore their characteristic, colorful patches. Only a manageable number of these bags seems to be in circulation today. They represent a rarity and, for this reason, are coveted collector's objects for this reason.

4. Louis Vuitton X Takashi Murakami (2003 - 2015):

None of the work together was as many fruits as that with the Japanese sexton Takashi Murakami. It started in 2003 with his colorful Multicolor Monogram Canvas variants. The bags became bestsellers overnight and still have loyal fans. Only a small number of bags was made from the same year by its modification, the Eye Love Multicolor Monogram Canvas. With this strongly limited variant, colorful eyes mix under the monogran pattern. Only four models were made from the canvas. They carried the right names Eye Need You, Eye Love You, Eye Miss You and Eye Dare You. The bags from Takashi Murakami’s Cerises Monogram Canvas with cherry print, which are only available for a short time, are now being traded at proud prices.

The designs from the cooperation with Prince are already rarely found today and are among the more unusual Louis Vuitton editions.

8. Louis Vuitton X Jeff Koons (2017):

The American artist Jeff Koons borrowed his creative flair of Louis Vuitton in 2017. The result is pockets, all of which remind some of the most famous painters of all time. Jeff Koons likes to use ideas from the world of advertising or pop culture and quotes them. He plays with stimuli and consciously uses them, like advertising itself. Its form of citation with often only slight modifications is still the subject of discussions. However, it cannot be denied that the pockets of the collection are probably one of the coolest of the last few years. Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa for Monogram Pattern has never existed before. Other bags also wear pictures of the artists Boucher, Poussin, Manet, Monet, Gauguin, Turner, van Gogh, Fragonard and Titian. The name of the artist in golden letters always shines on the front. Brand hijacking with different and at the highest level. A wider audience may be likely to his Contributions to BMW's Art Car Colletcion and its Bubbly Dom Perignon Champagne Special Editions be. Wodka, on the other hand, does not seem to like it, until today none of the numerous absolutely created absolutely bottles are wearing his manuscript. Who would have thought!
