Louis Vuitton auctions their one-off creations for the world's most famous creatives with proceeds to the Red Cross

The luxury leather brand has crafted personal, relevant and utterly desirable pieces as commissioned by world-celebrated creatives such as the likes of Damien Hirst, Gustavo Santaolalla, and Anne Liebovitz. These pieces are up for auctioning with proceeds to charity, the Nigerian Red Cross Fighting Malnutrition Programme, at a special one-off event held by Sotheby's at their New Bond Street location.

The artist, Hirst has had a medical cabinet constructed from cowhide leather, a luggage piece has been made for Michelin-star chef Ferran Adrià, whilst musician Santaolalla who composed the soundtracks for Brokeback Mountain and Babel, has had a guitar case crafted from black cowhide leather and blue velvet.

Artistic Director, Marc Jacobs himself has requested a 'travelling home' monogrammed carrying case for his two bull terriers, Daisy and Alfred, whilst Patrick-Louis Vuitton, a member of the fifth generation of the Vuitton family has made his Special Order a watercolour case made of brown crocodile leather and red goatskin interiors.

In addition, a Red Cross First Aid Kit has been made to celebrate their 150th anniversary as another exceptionally thoughtful item; with prices from £10,000 upwards, all to go towards the charity.
