START body

On October 20, Louis Vuitton celebrated the launch of the third iteration of its highly coveted limited edition Artycapucines collection with a glamorous event in Los Angeles. The soirée, which was hosted by supermodel and Miranda Kerr and stylist Jamie Mizrahi, was an intimate dinner attended by 36 guests and friends of the house at the John Lautner Harpel House. Some of the most notable attendees included Kate Hudson, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Nicole Ritchie, Rachel Zoe, Dylan Penn, Jennifer Meyer, Joel Madden, Kelly Sawyer, and Jasmine Tookes.

The collection for which the event was being held, the third installment of the longstanding French house’s Artycapucines collection, is even more awe-inspiring than the aforementioned guest list. This chapter features the work of six contemporary global artists who were tasked with reimagining the the iconic Capucines handbag.

Debuted in 2013, the Capucines bag is named the Rue Neuve des Capucines in Paris, the street on which Louis Vuitton opened his first storefront in 1854. Since it hit handbag market, the bag has swiftly become modern house classic and staple of the brand. Its design is delicate and minimal, making it the perfect canvas on which the six international artists could clearly display their work. The creatives in-question are Gregor Hildebrandt, Donna Huanca, Huang Yuxing, Vik Muniz, Paola Pivi and Zeng Fanzhi. All presented vastly different, but equally stunning takes on the bag, making each worthy of a celebratory dinner in their own right.
