Christian Schoeler for Louis Vuitton


At the Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris, the high-end brand displayed their latest collection of bags designed by young German artist Christian Schoeler and Louis Vuitton menswear designer Paul Helbers. The hand-painted bags were the highlight of the collection, featuring 19th century paintings on three different bag types — a square rucksac and two large weekender-style bags. The designs represents paint stains as Shoeler stated: “All artists’ clothes are covered in stains, like an accidental customization”, he continued, “My life is about creativity and that applies to art, but also to fashion.”
