Louis Vuitton & Eine

 

 Louis Vuitton team up with street artist Eine to create a

scarf collection, and to celebrate the collaboration the launch

will be on Monday at Selfridges with a textiles pop-up shop -

which Eine will be spray painting this weekend while

shoppers watch on.

 

Eine, AKA Ben Eine, is famous for his alphabet lettering that

adorns many a east London shop shutter in the trendy Brick Lane

and Shoreditch areas, and he is a contemporary of Banksy and

Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett. He began his career as an

underground artist but found fame of a sort when David Cameron

gifted a piece of his work, ‘Twenty First Century City’, to Barack

Obama in 2010. Now he’s designed artwork which is emblazoned

upon Vuitton’s ‘Giant Square’ scarf, which measures an impressive

136cm x 136cm, the scarf will be available exclusively at Selfridges

 until July 1, after which it will be available worldwide at Louis Vuitton

stores and concessions, priced at £465. 

 

 

 

 

Louis Vuitton windows

 

 

Vuitton’s seven stores worldwide revealed today

for its new window installations with dinosaurs.

 

The boutiques on Paris’ Champs Élysées, London’s New Bond

Street, and New York’s Fifth Avenue, will get the Jurassic

treatment, hosting golden reproductions of prehistoric skeletons

in their facades. Velociraptors, Dimetrodons, Stegosauruses,

Tyrannosaurus Rexes, and Triceratopses are just some of the

species that will inhabit the displays, which were apparently

inspired by a trip to the Natural History Museum in Paris

 Les Jardins des Plantes. On view from tomorrow, the beasts

seem fairly friendly, mannequins wearing Vuitton’s Pre-Fall

’13 wares are perched peacefully atop the creatures’ backs.
