The famous monogram has been the same ever since its creation, making it a universal fashion symbol. It positioned the brand making Louis Vuitton the company that is today, the world largest luxury brand (according to Forbes).
Delphine Arnault (daughter of LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault) and Nicholas Ghesquière (artistic director of LV) decided to celebrate the monogram´s 160th birthday in a special way. They gathered six of the best designers in their field to interpret in their own way the LV signature monogram. Having such an eclectic group of iconoclasts made each one of the pieces for this collection very unique. The chosen designers for this celebration are:
