One of the masters of modern architecture, Frank Gehry is one in a formidable line up of artists all invited to create their own distinctive pieces in the classic Louis Vuitton monogram. Chosen for their iconoclasm, the full collection contains items created by Cindy Sherman, Rei Kawakubo, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin and Marc Newson, from boxing gloves to a traveller’s trunk which Sherman fancies “might come in useful for a drag queen!” Seen here modelled by Julia Nobis in an exclusive film by Dazed contributor Pierre Debusschere, Gehry’s creation echoes the warped lines of his infamous buildings, like LA’s Walt Disney Concert Hall and the newly built Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation in Paris – the location of Nicolas Ghesquière'sSS15 show. A true innovator, Gehry is used to his ideas generating resistance. “In my work I am usually pushed back if it’s new – that’s when I know I am doing OK, when I get the push back,” he says. In this case however, Vuitton instantly “loved” the architect's design, to his suprise: “I thought: ‘What is going on?’”
Before the collection launches on October 15th, see Gehry’s design come to life above and the rest of the collection below.
