OIiver Zahm: a photographic diary of Art, Sex and Fashion. However for the aspirational shopper, the most exciting event this week is the launch of "The Icons and The Iconoclasts" from Louis Vuitton.
This project involved handing the reigns to six leading creatives, including Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Louboutin, and asking them to produce a new bag or piece of luggage. Remaining true to the elegance of the brand, these six new designs blast new life into the iconic Louis Vuitton Monogram. The range caters for all tastes: Marc Newson contributes a chic backpack whereas Cindy Sherman produces a playful satchel. Christian Louboutin clearly designed with his shoes in mind. His piece is elegant and structured, the perfect compliment to his signature heel. For those looking for a stronger statement, Rei Kawakubo's shopper bag is for you. Far from practical, the designer takes a modern twist on the old classic through the addition of large, puddle like holes on the side of the bag. As ever, Karl Lagerfeld blends innovation and style. His piece plays with shape and uses a gold chain strap rendering it a must have piece.
