From the City of Lights to the City that never Sleeps- Louis Vuitton Exhibition has arrived in New York City at the historic American Stock Exchange on October 27, 2017.
This past April, Jeff Koons and Louis Vuitton teamed up on a limited edition capsule of
accessories. Aptly titled “Masters”, the special range is comprised of the French Luxury Brand’s Signature handbags alongside wallets, key chains, shawls, and silk squares embellished with the famous artworks of Da Vinci, Van Gogh, Rubens, and Fragonard.
This time the Fashion based powerhouse partnered with New York-based contemporary artist Jeff Koons to their second capsule collaboration of their classic bags like Speedy, Keep all and Never full using Koons’ “Gazing Ball” paintings- interpretations of masterpieces by the likes of Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Francois Boucher, Paul Gauguin, Nicolas Poussin (exclusive to the Paris Vendome Maison) and J.M.W. Turner.
Revealed on October 12, LV has long established itself as a patron of the arts, specifically with its high-profile collection using innovative techniques.
The launch exhibition was glamorized with the famous celebrities including Delphine Arnault, Alicia Vikander, Zendaya and none other than Jeff Koons with many other celebrity guests.
Jeff Koons was even interviewed regarding some interesting questions which were as follows:
Ques 1: If you could paint 300 of single subject what would you choose?
JK: Origin of the World.
Ques 2: What are your favorite museums?
JK: Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Louvre, Prada, Metropolitan in New York and
National Gallery of London.
Ques 3: What does Art do and what does Fashion do?
JK: Both art and fashion excite, they are about being alive what our potential is and to define this moment but at the same time to embrace the past and future.
Ques4: Which painting would you live in?
No doubt this showed the great love for art of Jeff Koons revealing the collection showing erotic charge “reclining girl”, Forbidden Fruit, Referencing Eden, Gauguin’s “Delightful Land” shows a sensual Eve averting her gaze, as a red-winged lizard whispers in her ear, from the Ohara museum of Art in Kurashiki, Japan.
Well remixing the iconic artwork in new ways is seriously an eye gaging affair for the audiences this time.
