The latest collaboration from Louis Vuitton and Takashi Murakami for Spring/Summer 2010 is the Cosmic Blossom Collection. The collection features Murakami’s superflat artwork printed on Louis Vuitton pieces.
Fun, frivolous and cute, Cosmic Blossom comes in three gorgeously girly shades on leather goods (Rose, Bleu, and Violet), ready-to-wear and accessories. For leather goods, Louis Vuitton has developed a silkscreen-printed vinyl canvas, whose glossy finish effortlessly makes the transition from city to beach. A convenient holdall in two sizes is joined by the iconic Pochette Accessoires and emblazoned with a heritage Louis Vuitton signature.
These ready-to-use leather accessories are innovative because of the use of the serigraphy technique giving the leather a glossy effect and vibrant color. Cosmic Blossom Collection includes a $550 a pochette (8.3inches x 5.1inches x 1.6inches) a PM tote, priced at $1240 (19.3inches x 11.4inches x 5.1inches) and a GM tote, priced at $1480 (22.8inches x 13.7inches x 7.1inches).
The collection will be available at Louis Vuitton stores on April 15th 2010.
