The Capucines, arguably Louis Vuitton’s most popular all-leather bag, was first introduced in Fall 2013. Named after Louis Vuitton’s original Maison, which was located on rue Neuve-des-Capucines, the Capucines was launched during a transitional period for Louis Vuitton. The brand was shifting its collections to include a greater selection of cleaner, minimally branded designs as an alternative to its logo-focused bags. And even as the Maison has shifted back towards an era of Monogram, the Capucines has remained a cornerstone design. When the Capucines Bag was first released, they bore some of Louis Vuitton’s highest price tags.

The classic silhouette has been reimagined in countless ways, season after season. Its clean lines and minimalist design of the Capucines make it the ideal blank canvas. And, for the fourth year in a row, the Maison taps leading artists to bring their unique visions to one of Louis Vuitton’s most timeless, feminine classics with its Artycapucines collection.

Unmatched Creativity

Artycapucines chapter four is a unique testament to the Capucine’s iconic staying power, and this collection further proves that its sleek, clean shape both delights and inspires. This year, six international artists from various parts of the world – Amélie Bertrand, Daniel Buren, Peter Marino, Park Seo-Bo, Ugo Rondinone, and Kennedy Yanko – have taken the Capucines and completely transformed it, bringing their own unique, creative vision to a timeless design.

Each bag in the 2022 Artycapucines Collection will be released in limited edition quantities, 200 to be exact, and available in Louis Vuitton stores worldwide. Discover more via Louis Vuitton.

The Ugo Rondinone version is to die for! Also the Daniel Buren, especially in yellow!

I like this artistic approach…creativity on classics.

At first glance I thought that the Ugo Rondinone editions were in unsanded patchwork fluorescent shark skin, which would have made them masterpieces of dyeing and assembly. So i was disappointed when zoomed in and saw that the texturing was due to beadwork instead.But then i realized that unsanded sharkskin would have snagged on everything and scraped the wearer’s skin, so yes, beadwork is okay, hahaha!

PS: those studded black Peter Marinos are timeless. and will probably get sold-out way before they reach the stores.

I adore the Daniel Buren. As an art piece, the Kennedy Yanko is cool. Not sure I would actually carry it.

Amelie Bertrand and Daniel Buren looks fun to watch, not sure about carrying daily, but it still a pretty art.
