    Default Louis Vuitton Takashi Murakami Monogram Camouflage Bag Line

    January 23, 2008

    Video clip: Interview with Takashi Murakami by Jonathan Ross on Japanorama. Skip ahead to 2:10 for a good laugh. The reporter obviously doesn’t know how to tell the difference between a replica on the street (literally) and the real deal.


    Video clip: Marc Jacobs, artistic director for Louis Vuitton, discusses his collaboration with Takashi Murakami in advance of the exhibition. At the very end of the clip designer Marc Jacobs reveals the new limited edition handbag collaboration.. hmm, makes me dying to know what’s blurred out in the background behind Marc-ey Marc!!

    I for one am not a camouflage fan, however this new addition will have a creative bold pop-design twist to the look - it’s will be designed by prolific contemporary Japanese pop artist, Takashi Murakami!


    You know T.M., he’s the creative mastermind behind many of the limited edition Louis Vuitton designer bag lines: The smiling pink Cherry Blossom Flower line, the super adorable cartoon Panda line, the delicious red Cerise cherry line, MOCA LV, the Eye Love You line and of course the Monogram Multicolore made up of 33 different vibrant colors on a white or a black background. All of the collaborations with Takashi Murakami are all highly sought after valuable collectors pieces. So I can only imagine that the monogram camouflage bag collection will be as big as the previous limited edition bags.

    Date still unknown, but rumor has it the new line is due out sometime this year.

    Working on the occasional collaboration project with Louis Vuitton isn’t his only creative venture. Murakami, who attended the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, works in both fine arts media, such as painting, as well as digital and commercial media. He founded the "Kaikai Kiki," a studio where Murakami formulates the ideas but then has his 100+ assistants produce his work. In addition to producing art works for exhibition in galleries and museums, KaiKai Kiki is responsible for the design of an enormous range of mass-produced products featuring Murakami's signature images: figurines, plush toys, keychains, t-shirts, posters, and more. I still can’t wait until the Takashi Murakami & Dream Works animated film to be released. Disney is so out.

    They announced in Nov. that this line would be released, and if it looks anything like the Fendi camouflage, I'm definitely NOT a fan...!!!

    Although I am not a fan of camouflauge... I am sooo curious to know what this line is going to look like... When I think Takashi.. I think color... So I can't really picture Camouflague... on Canvas??! I dunno...

    i love takashi murakami, being an art student and purse fanatic, i can't get enough of him. I just did a report on him last semester and had to create murakami inspired pieces and it was fun. I can't wait to see the new stuff, i'm not much for camo but i don't think i've come across one of his collaborations that i wasn't so crazy about, if its anything like i'm thinking it may be i might actually have to (try to) get one!
