How are the fashion world's designers celebrating 160 years of Louis Vuitton?
Top Designers Celebrate Louis Vuitton's Anniversary
Christian Louboutin, Karl Lagerfeld, Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry, Marc Newson, and Rei Kawakubo are honoring Louis Vuitton’s 160th anniversary with reinterpretations of the brand’s famed monogram. Pieces in the Celebrating Monogram collection include Kawakubo’s Bag With Holes and Strip favorite Christian Louboutin’s Classic Caddy, accented with the same red that adorns the soles of his shoes. “For me, the bag had to be a combination of two DNAs: my own and Louis Vuitton’s,” says Louboutin. The entire collection lives interactively through a custom website (celebrating. monogram.lv) and is available for purchase at two of Louis Vuitton’s stores in Las Vegas.

Rose gold is having more than a mere moment this fall, and legendary jeweler David Yurman is upping the ante with his first complete collection crafted in rose gold. Yurman’s new Venetian Quatrefoil collection is composed of striking, intricate pieces fashioned in interlocking diamond patterns (quatrefoil means “four leaves” in Italian) inspired by the elaborate architecture and stonework of Venice. “This is an exalted form we’ve been playing with for over 12 years,” says the designer. “There’s something very delicate and classic about it.” Accented by white diamonds and precious stones such as amethyst, they’re the perfect pieces to celebrate the holiday season on the Strip.
