Six contemporary artists bring their unique visions to Louis Vuitton’s iconic Capucines bag

First launched in 201 3 and named after Rue des Capucines, the Parisian street on which Louis Vuitton opened his first store in 1 854, the Capucines bag has quickly become a contemporary classic. With the limited-edition ArtyCapucines Collection, the bag’s distinctive design and silhouette provides an idealU blank canvas” for six leading international artists: Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, Nicholas Hlobo, Alex Israel, Tschabalala Self, and Jonas Wood.

In the spirit of Louis Vuitton’s renowned collaborations with artists such as Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama and Jeff Koons, the ArtyCapucines Collection sees the six artists’ unique visions applied to the Capucines. The resulting bags are a showcase of the artists’ creativity, as well as the innovation and know-how of the House’s ateliers: from the extreme precision of the dying and stitching on Alex Israel’s intensely coloured wave design; to the innovative digital printing and 3D embroidery of Jonas Wood’s creation; the removable, hand-crafted fruit and vegetables of Urs Fischer’s impish design; the intricate hand-laced and stitched leather patterns of Nicholas Hlomo’s vision; the remarkably embroidered leather patchwork on Tschabalala Self’s bag; and the intricate mother-of-pearl work on Sam Fall’s Capucines.

The ArtyCapucines Collection is further proof of Louis Vuitton’s unique ability to aid artists bring their ideas to life by combining its passion for constant innovation with its traditions of artisanal savoir-faire.

Each model in the ArtyCapucines Collection will be released in a limited and numbered edition of 300from June 25th 2019
