Koons, Le Louvre and Louis Vuitton

Only one art and fashion collaboration could deserve to be launched in front of the Mona Lisa this week in Paris.

Not long ago, Louis Vuitton teased a new collaboration with acclaimed pop artist Jeff Koons.
Now, the Koons “Masters” project with the French luxury house is finally here. The lavish range completely helmed by the artist takes inspiration from his “Gazing Ball” series which was initially developed in 2013 and culls the work of 35 masterpieces such as Monet’s Water Lilies and Klimt’s The Kiss.
For this latest partnership, Koons adorns premium leather goods with five classic paintings produced by Da Vinci, Van Gogh, Peter Paul Rubens and Jean-Honoré Fragonard.
