With everyone from Jessica Simpson to Ashley Tisdale and Uma Thurman adorning their arms with Louis Vuitton’s monogram totes, it’s no wonder the LV logo is so instantly recognizable. But the brand is shaking things up this autumn with a new ultra-exclusive line designed in collaboration with iconic Japanese fashion line Comme des Garcons. Each of the six avant-garde bags puts a spin on classic Louis Vuitton designs — like this eight-armed Speedy. Even if you have the superstar salary to afford one of the limited edition bags, getting your hands on one will require a jet-set lifestyle to go along with it. The collection will available to order exclusively in person at the Louis Vuitton mini-store inside the Comme des Garcons boutique in Tokyo, starting September 4th. Looking for something a little closer to home? You’ll be able to get a more budget-friendly Comme des Garcons fix this fall when the company’s founder and head designer, Rei Kawakubo, takes a turn as a featured guest designer at H&M, designing a women’s and men’s collections in early November. Tell us: What do you think of LV’s latest look? Will you buy from Comme des Garcon’s lower-priced collaboration with H&M this fall?
