Jeff Koons Teams Up with Louis Vuitton

Take your Van Gogh on the go.

Take your Van Gogh on the go.

Louis Vuitton’s latest artist collaboration is with Jeff Koons, the contemporary artist perhaps best known for his massive installations of metallic balloon animals. With Vuitton, Koons blends iconic artworks with the brand’s varying handbags and scarves. Want to take a Van Gogh on the go? Great. Maybe throw a Rubens on your back? Even better.

The collaboration is the perfect mash-up of luxury and pop, classic art in a contemporary context, which is exactly what Koons does best. The artist, prolific in his own right, was thrust into the mainstream after a name drop from Lady Gaga with “ArtPop,” the album title track to her third studio release (Koons created the album artwork, as well). Unfortunately, there is no chance you’ll catch this collaboration on iTunes, but you can definitely count on Lady Gaga as a fan.

The Masters LV x Koons line will be available on April 28. Find out more on www.louisvuitton.com
