Louis Vuitton first launched it’s now iconic Capucines bag in 2013, and since its release the Capucines has been reimagined in many different iterations. Named after Rue des Capucines, which is the Parisian Street on which Louis Vuitton’s first store was opened, the Capucines has become somewhat of a contemporary classic. This summer, Louis Vuitton has once again introduced a new take on the Capucines bag, tapping into 6 contemporary artist’s unique visions to create 6 limited edition styles.
This capsule collection is called the Artycapucines Collection and the Capucines bag provides an ideal ‘blank canvas’ for an artists individual design. Each artist has taken this classic silhouette and created a bag that is distinct to their artistic vision. These six international artists include Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, Nicholas Hlobo, Alex Israel, Tschabalala Self, and Jonas Wood. As the brand states, the Artycapucines Collection is further proof of Louis Vuitton’s unique ability to bring artists ideas to life. Each Artycapucines bag retails for $8,600 and is available via Louis Vuitton.
