Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Louboutin to collaborate with Louis Vuitton

Untitled #1070
In celebration of 160 years of Louis Vuitton, the French maison has asked six renowned artists to redesign the iconic symbol LV with their own, unique way.

The top fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Newson, Christian Louboutin and Rei Kawakubo, famous photographer Cindy Sherman and the architect Frank Gehry participate in the team project «The Icon and the Iconoclasts», in which everyone will draw their own interpretation of the trade mark of the French brand, and then to “dress” a collection of handbags.

The collection will be released in mid-October and despite the fact that each bag will vary in 2000-4000 eurosthe demand is expected eminently high.

“When we talked with Nicolas Ghesquière about the extraordinary talents we would like to approach we simply went to those who are among the best in their fields,” says Delphine Arnault, executive vice President of Louis Vuitton, who came up with the idea alongside Ghesquière.

She added: “We were interested in people who work with their minds and their hands. I thought it was so interesting – and fun! – to have all of these different points of view on the Monogram. It is inspiring to see how they envision things, to see their perspectives. This is a group of geniuses.”

Untitled #1069
On 2 June, the eyes of fashionistas around the world turned to New York, specifically, the Lincoln Centre, where took place the Association of American Designer awards, aka CFDA Awards. The glamorous ceremony, known as the ‘Oscars of Fashionwere, once again, very interesting (now, there has been no media that has not been dealt with in a transparent dress of Rihanna), while the people who were awarded were indisputably the most discussed (and this) year.
Rihanna
The big winner of the evening. The superstar left, taking with her the prize for the fashion icon of the year. Of course, as usual, the singer from Barbados manages to strongly be discussed, for the revealing outfit. Rihanna appeared with a transparent dress and scarf covered with crystals a barely-there mesh of 230,000(!) Swarovski crystals designed by Adam Selman to the awards show.
Tom Ford
The designer won the prestigious Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, for its overall contribution to the world of fashion. 
 ‘It’s been a wonderful 25 years and I could have never achieved it without all the people in this room,’ he said while collecting the prize.
Joseph Altuzarra

The designer behind the house Altuzarra was named Womenswear Designer of the YearAltuzarra has already been proposed for CFDA 3 times while in 2011 he was the one who won the prize of the Union in order to strengthen the brand. The house Altuzarra exists since 2008 and is known for his feminine silhouettes and sophisticated aesthetic.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
The famous duo behind the label The Row won the award for accessory designer of the year. Olsen were candidate with Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler. This is not the first CFDA in their career as, in 2012, Mary-Kate and Ashley left the event with the Womenswear Designer award.
Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne
Another duo monopolized the interest of the Union in 2014. The reason for Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, behind the label Public School. The two designers left winners for their unique Menswear, which is inspired by the monochrome and their cool streetwear.
