Louis Vuitton has commissioned famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, artist Damien Hirst, and Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs to design special one-of-a-kind pieces to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s on November 17th 2009 to mark to 150th anniversary of the Red Cross.
Annie designed a red-lined back pack filled with compartments to transport camera equipment. Damien, has designed a tall black trunk lined in blue microfibre with several small drawers inside to house his surgical equipment (used when creating his art), and Marc, a travel trunk made with 1500 nails to hold his two pet dogs (Alfred and Daisy) complete with a space for a photo of him and room for a sample of his clothing.
Special thanks to H. Kim for the info. I will post photos of the pieces as soon as I receive them.
