When Louis Met Stephen and Takashi

For the spring quarter of my Current Designers class, I added a section focusing on the biggest of big names in fashion such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton. During the lecture, I cited the collaborations masterminded by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton featuring Stephen Sprouse and Takashi Murakami.

Famed auction house Christie's is offering pieces from both of the limited edition collections for Louis Vuitton during an online auction featuring 84 luxury handbags by iconic designers such as Hermès and Chanel. Birkin and Kelly bags are aplenty in the lot. Belts, jewelry, luggage and wallets round out the assortment gathered by Christie's Vintage Couture team. The Vintage Couture: Handbags and Accessories  online-only auction is accepting bids now through June 24th.
