THE COLLABORATION LOUIS VUITTON AND RICHARD PRINCE

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Marc Jacobs was inspired to work with art world anti-hero Richard Prince after his controversial Spiritual America exhibition in 2007. The collaboration was unveiled at the SS08 runway show, which opened with 12 models (including Naomi Campbell) dressed as nurses, each with a letter emblazoned on their hats to spell out ‘Louis Vuitton’. It was a nod to Prince’s famous Nurse paintings (as seen on Sonic Youth’s Sonic Nurse cover). As for the bags, they featured his Jokes series – their messages printed over a reimagined, washed out monogram, with snakeskin accents for good measure. More recently, one of Prince’s Joke works was used in Raf Simons’ debut campaign for Calvin Klein, appearing in the art gallery backdrop of the images.
