Louis Vuitton taps Los Angeles-based artist Jonas Wood for a new textile collection exploring the fashion house's silk carré, shawl, and stole. The project finds Wood showcasing his vibrant and colorful artistic vision on 11 pieces, as he has reinterpreted Louis Vuitton's iconic monogram pattern.
A subtle version of the monogram pattern is featured on silk and wool shawls, silk carrés, and a silk and cotton stole, offered in sea blue and bright pink, and juxtaposed with an orange basketball, a yellow flower, and a black and white pot. Two silk and wool shawls are then decorated with Wood's graffiti-like hand-lettering, also boasting the monogram pattern.
The artist makes use of his collage style on classic silk carrés, as two arrive in bright blues, reds, and greens, with lush vegetation. The third carré is double-sided, boasting versions of the Louis Vuitton signature over a black and grey pattern.
Lastly, the collection includes a cotton and silk stole with a hand-drawn wood grain print, the hand-lettered name, and Wood’s signature.
Jonas Wood's Louis Vuitton textile collection launches in stores worldwide September 12.
