Louis Vuitton’s iconic Capucines bag gets a 2021 remix this season with the Artycapucine capsule, distinctively redesigned through the eyes of six global artists.

Clockwise from the top: Capucines MM bag (in cowhide and patent calfskin leathers) Louis Vuitton Capucines by Gregor Hildebrandt Capucines BB bag (in cowhide and calfskin leathers) Louis Vuitton Capucines by Vik Muniz Capucines MM bag (in cowhide and taurillon leathers) Louis Vuitton Capucines by Donna Huanca ($8,850, available at select Louis Vuitton stores.)

Vik Muniz’ reinterpretation brings the bag into a world of colorful clip art; Donna Huanca works in abstract prints, meshing embroidery, printing, and hand-painting into a vibrant swirl of pigment; Huang Yuxing uses detailed brushstrokes to embroider a rainbow river across the bag. As a nod to Van Gogh, Zeng Fanzhi recreates his portrait, while Paola Pivi uses gold-leaf gilding in leopard print and Gregor Hildebrant experiments in monochromatic linework. The world is your canvas; the Artycupicines is your brush.
