Meet the Cosmic Blossom collection, the new collaboration between Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and Louis Vuitton. The collection features Murakami’s superflat artwork printed on Louis Vuitton pieces.
Cosmic Blossom comes in three vibrant colors (Rose, Bleu, and Violet) on leather goods, ready-to-wear and accessories. For leather goods, Louis Vuitton has developed an innovative serigraphy technique which gives the pieces a glossy effect and vibrant color. Also, the bags are emblazoned with a heritage Louis Vuitton signature similar to the one printed in Neverfull bags.
Leather goods pieces in this collection includes a pochette measuring 8.3″ x 5.1″ x 1.6″ priced at US$550 and a tote in two sizes, a PM (19.3″ x 11.4″ x 5.1″) and GM (22.8″ x 13.7″ x 7.1″), US$1240 and US$1480 for the PM and GM respectively. The collection will be available at Louis Vuitton stores on April 15th 2010.
