Louis Vuitton x Fornasetti

The latest Louis Vuitton collaboration intertwines the exquisitely illustrated world of renowned Italian artistic design atelier Fornasetti with Nicolas Ghesquière’s strikingly contemporary design.

THE CAMPAIGN

Marking the debut of the collaboration, Nicolas Ghesquière’s Fall-Winter 2021 collection integrates Fornasetti’s distinct visual universe into multiple designs. Embodying the two Maisons’ shared sense of experimental traditionalism, the collaboration is an effective blend of Louis Vuitton’s forward-looking creativity and craft and Fornasetti’s magical and visionary depiction of the world.

THE COLLECTION

The collection uses a rich combination of colour, textures, and traditional, cutting-edge techniques including jacquard, embroidery and laser printing. Featuring a broad selection of Louis Vuitton products, the collection draws on Fornasetti motifs, such as buildings, locks, keys, and portraits. These include a captivating version of the Cannes bag in transformed leather, beautifully embellished with a Fornasetti black-and-white architectural drawing and reminiscent of the Renaissance-era Baptistery in Florence, and a reworked Petite Malle that seems to have been inflated and covered with a dome printed metallic leather, creating a striking optical illusion.
