The Japanese Neo-Pop artist behind the cult reinterpretations of Louis Vuitton's classic Monogram canvas, Takashi Murakami is going back to the drawing board for their S/S '10 collection.
With 'Cosmic Blossom', Takashi Murakami's vision has found a new canvas with a bright, block colour background where Louis Vuitton's iconic Monogram flowers jostle playfully with smiling flower faces, a recurrent theme in Murakami's art, which famously fuses manga graphics with traditional Japanese pictorial motifs.
Shooting Daisy Lowe in Miami as part of their campaign, the line comes in three shades on leather goods, ready-to-wear and accessories from a silkscreen-printed vinyl canvas, and a convenient holdall in two sizes, joined by the iconic Pochette Accessories, emblazoned with a heritage Louis Vuitton signature. The Cosmic Blossom motif also makes an appearance on T-shirts and scarves, bandanas, bikinis and shoes lighting up summer days with irresistible candy colours.
The limited-edition Cosmic Blossom collection is available in Louis Vuitton stores from 15th April 2010.
