Louis Vuitton joins forces with Comme des Garçons – here’s one of the results…


This year, Louis Vuitton celebrates 30 years in Japan with the opening of a small concession inside Tokyo’s Comme des Garçons. Comme des Garçons foudner Rei Kawakubo has not only re-designed the entire store to incorporate the famous LV monogram (don’t worry, it’s not permanent), she’s also created a limited edition collection of her own version of some of the bags, including the multi-handled Speedy shown above.

If you want to buy this, you’re going to have to take a trip to Tokyo – they’re not accepting telephone or Internet orders, and according to the press release, it’ll be "several months" before the bag is shipped to the Vuitton store of your choice for collection.

Rei Kawakubo says: "These are party bags to celebrate the 30 years of Louis Vuitton in Japan. In designing them, I have kept Louis Vuitton’s traditional concept as it is, but sometimes two handles become one, sometimes two handles become eight… "
