Edgy, retro and avant-garde, get ready to look chic and street smart all at once with LV’s Crafty Collection, having just hit stores worldwide. Vivid, bold and magnified, these graffiti inspired graphics on some serious LV icons blow you away. Throwback time it is, and LV paves the way with a trailblazing and stylish assemblage, discovers Priyanka Sippy, in EE’s Fashion Style File 2020 this August.
Drawing inspiration from graffiti art and neo-expressionism, two art forms from the second half of the 20th century, the LV Crafty Collection spins an imaginative tale. Originally urban, underground trends, these artistic expressions found their way into reputable creative terrains, such as museums and galleries in New York, in the 1980’s. Graffiti, though it can be traced back to centuries ago, became fashionable art in the 80’s.
I absolutely love the way Louis Vuitton constantly reinvents and revisits classics and icons from its vast repertoire and comes up with absolutely spectacular new versions and variations. Always a fan of pop style, these accessories definitely caught my fancy.
Watch the Monogram canvas come alive with bold graphics and color. The collection returns to a print selected from the House’s archives and teams it spectacularly with the Monogram Giant motif in black. Available in two color pairings, cream and red or the more fall cream and caramel, LV Crafty makes itself seen on the House’s most iconic creations – Onthego, Néo Noé and Boite Chapeau Souple.
The Monogram Empreinte leather has also adopted the LV Crafty print, adding understated and sophisticated touches around the shapes and handles and to the accessories, which enhance and invigorate the lustrous black or white leather.
Just having debuted in all Louis Vuitton stores end July, the range comprises a full selection of trainers, accessories, ready-to-wear, travel and more to start off the fall season with panache, LV style.
