The Mona Lisa takes Its proper Handbag

 The Mona Lisa takes Its proper Handbag


For its latest collaboration, Louis Vuitton has connected with American artist Jeff Koons. Entitled “Masters,” the accessories collection is an extension of Koon’s “Gazing Ball” series in which he reimagines classic artwork with an added mirrored blue ball as the work’s focal point.

Like the name propose, the collection features bags and accessories printed with old Masters paintings, including Titian’s “Mars, Venus, and Cupid” and Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.” AlThough there are no balls in sight, each artist’s name is displayed like a brand name across the bag, which, according to Koons, performs a similar function to the ball in the original series.

Each bag also bears Koons own initials in the iconic LV monogram style and includes a classic Koons bunny-shaped bag charm. The “Masters” collection will be available from April 28.
