In honor of the house’s 160th anniversary, Louis Vuitton has enlisted six creatives, the Iconoclasts, to reimagine the legendary logo – including Christian Louboutin. Joining giants of art and design such as Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Newson, and Rei Kawakubo, Christian gave his spin (with a familiar shade of red) on the famed Monogram by way of two beautiful new accessories, a shopping bag and a shopping trolley. Here is Gordon Von Steiner’s interpretation of these accessories.
