The Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection turned a lot of heads when it was announced, mostly because of the perennially bold-faced names from the worlds of fashion and design that had signed on to participate. Louis Vuitton tasked fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, as well as architect Frank Gehry, photographer Cindy Sherman and industrial designer Mark Newson with creating artful fashion pieces using the brand’s signature monogram print, and now we know what each of them did with the challenge.

It was rumored from the beginning that Lagerfeld, perhaps the project’s most surprising participant, would make a punching bag, and not only that, but it’ll come in three sizes, hang with handbag-like straps on its included stand and also function as a regular handbag. For more serious training, a full-size punching bag and storage trunk, both covered in monogram canvas, are also available for an undisclosed price. To finish out the theme, a set of boxing gloves and their weekender-like case are also part of Lagerfeld’s capsule collection.

Louboutin and Sherman went in particularly colorful directions with their contributions, while Kawakubo was as weird as you’d expect her to be and Gehry was duly architectural. Newson’s fleece-paneled backpacks were easily the most wearable of bags in the collection, a sensibility that should serve him well at his new employer: Apple.

Below, check out the full collection, with pricing information where available. More information about each piece is available at Louis Vuitton’s website.

Ugh, I feel like this was such a total let down, this is what they came up with. The backpacks are probably the only things that someone would buy and use vs. something a collector would purchase just to have, I personally would have loved it if Karl did some sort of nod to Chanel, maybe a quilted speedy or something along that.

you’re 100% right. The bag packs are somewhat sensible to use, but kind of ugly and the trunks are cool for collectors, but nothing is realistic or practical. And something that incorporated a little bit of Chanel into it would have be really cool, even a speedy w/Karl painted on it or like you said something with a little quilting.

Are you guys Serious ??? How do you not love the Christian louboutin shopping bag?? It’s ridiculous .. Just purchased mine and I can’t even walk ten feet in public without someone coming up to me to ask about it. Pictures don’t do it justice , it is gorgeous!!!! As for the rest of the collection …. Totally cool, they weren’t meant to look like something you can pick up at Macy’s…. Ever hear of “artistic expression” ????? True artists , all of them

I love LV, Louboutin, and Karl. But ugh! All of these are terrible. 🙁

Lovestruck for Louboutins

The Louboutin ones were nice (apart from the red back) but as for the others… WTactualF?! Especially the last one ???? And let’s not even talk about the insane prices.

Just purchased the Louboutin Shopping bag, it is beautiful just like the other Lv pieces, at £2910.00 it is worth every penny, the photograph does not do the item justice.

Agreed. If I didn’t know any better I’d say 1st semester FIT project. Except for the furry backpacks.
