Stephen Sprouse x Marc Jacobs: Punk


In 2001, Stephen Sprouse - the creative mind behind the 1980s style of mixing high fashion with punk - joined forces with Marc Jacobs to create a limited edition range of LV bags. The offbeat design featured graffiti sprawled across the classic LV monogram with the names of Vuitton bag.


Some pieces in the collection were made exclusively for customers on Louis Vuitton's V.I.P customer list. Famous fans of the Sprouse and Jacobs' designs include Kylie Minogue and models Adriana Lima and Agyness Deyn.

Takashi Murakami x Marc Jacobs: Superflat


Takashi Murakami teamed up with Marc Jacobs in 2003 to bring the fashion world a new line of Monogram Multicolore. The duo created 33 different designs on either a black or white background, revamping the classic gold monogram on brown leather.

Murakami created the Cherry Blossom pattern for the collection which featured whimsical emoji-style faces in the centre of flowers. The design has become highly sought after as it only ran for 2003.

Murakami's first series of handbags brought the classic monogram print design into the 21st century, blurring the lines between art, fashion and consumer culture. The collaboration went on to design the Monogramouflage collection, a collection of rugs which were debuted at Art Basel in 2009, QR Codes and the popular Cherry Blossom collection.

Takashi Murakami x Marc Jacobs: Monogramouflage


In 2008, the Monogramouflage Louis Vuitton was launched. Jacobs and Murakami replaced the brown background of the traditional LV monogram with a stylised camouflage pattern.

Yayoi Kusama x Marc Jacobs: Infinitely Kusama


In July 2012, Jacobs enlisted one of the art world's greatest contemporary artists, Yayoi Kusama, for a handbag collection. The bags featured Kusama's signature coloured and black or white dots which have become synonymous with her works centred around pumpkin shapes.

Last year, Time Magazine named Kusama as one of the most influential people in the world. Marc Jacobs penned a tribute entitled ''The everlasting radical'' to the artist. Jacobs recalled their first meeting in 2006, saying how she repeated: ''We must create, we must create, it's important that we create.''

Jacobs went on to describe the power of Kusama's influence: ''This is a woman who’s been around for a very long time, who's done some really radical and revolutionary things in the art world. I admire her unapologetic dedication to her vision, which still allows for plenty of growth and change. When people look back at her work decades from now, they’ll see that her idea of creation and infinity has an eternal endurance.''
