When Art Meets Fashion

Behind the Artist Collaborations You Know & Love

TREVOR ANDREW × GUCCI

TREVOR ANDREW × GUCCI


Trevor Andrew, better known as “Trouble”, has a story fit for the books. As an ex-Olympian and snowboarder, Andrew started dipping his toes into fashion by taking apart and putting together high fashion items. His nickname “GucciGhost” was derived from his transformation of a Gucci bedsheet into a last-minute Halloween costume. He then began painting the Gucci logo all over New York with the hashtag “gucci ghost”, which attracted significant buzz and most notably caught the attention of Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director. Michele’s free-spirited attitude and Andrew’s immense creativity bred a new art collaboration for the younger generations and has since become one of the fashion house’s most sought-after collections.

TAKASHI MURAKAMI × LOUIS VUITTON

TAKASHI MURAKAMI × LOUIS VUITTON


Takashi Murakami acquired a liking for Japanese contemporary arts at a very young age. Murakami’s frustration with the lack of Japanese representation in art inspired him to create a new twist on the contemporary and meld it with traditional Japanese art forms. Murakami’s Superflat Theory involves creating pieces considered as “low” and bringing them into the “high market,” which he did by incorporating Manga and Anime into his work. In 2002, he worked with Marc Jacobs on a new direction for Louis Vuitton, designing some of the most successful pieces ever sold. By taking Louis Vuitton’s traditional monogramming and adding his own artistic twist, he introduced his Superflat Theory to this market. He created a new line of silhouettes and updated several LV staples, tying together his concept of high art and commercialism.

STEPHEN SPROUSE × LOUIS VUITTON

STEPHEN SPROUSE × LOUIS VUITTON


Stephen Sprouse, also known as the “Punk Rock Fashion God,” merged fashion, art and rock unlike any other. He started sketching designs as early as the age of nine, and his parents encouraged him and introduced him to many designers as a teenager. Sprouse’s theme embodied a downtown cool vibe with and uptown luxury feel, which was said to be lightyears ahead of the time. His iconic Graffiti print made its way along many of his collections and was introduced to Louis Vuitton in 2001, and then later again in 2006. His graffiti-printed logos and leopards were considered a worldwide phenomenon, and still continue to sell quickly online.

JEFF KOONS × LOUIS VUITTON

JEFF KOONS × LOUIS VUITTON


You can’t discuss contemporary modern art without Jeff Koons being mentioned. Koons’ influence in the mid 80’s explored a realm of modern and contemporary art unlike his predecessors. The idea that art can be found anywhere, in little trinkets, plastic toys, balloons and objects that people never considered as fine art, was the epitome of his movement and he constantly challenged people to reverse their views on economics, money, art, status, and so much more. In 2017 he displayed this genius mix of old and new by collaborating with Louis Vuitton to create the “Masters Collection”, for which he combined classic art from the likes of Da Vinci to Van Gogh with his whimsical twist.

JOHN BOOTH × FENDI

JOHN BOOTH × FENDI


John Booth, an alumnus of Central Saint Martins in London, gained mass appeal due to his colorful prints and face drawings. His works feature a lot of color, fabrics, clashing prints, textures, and a variety of styles which led to his creative hand in designing many of Fendi’s new collection. Under the wing of Silvia Fendi, Booth’s creative process was quite free (which was very new to Fendi). His attention to detail, playfulness, and spontaneity is what defines his success with Fendi.

YAYOI KUSAMA × LOUIS VUITTON

YAYOI KUSAMA × LOUIS VUITTON


Born and raised in Japan, Yayoi Kusama had an inquisitive and artistic mind at a very young age. She had vivid hallucinations growing up, imagining dots, flowers, and other prints which she eventually brought into so much of her artwork. In the 1950s, she moved to New York and really started to express her art through paintings and sculptures which, in turn, led her to became the voice for the avant-garde, hippie lifestyle that defined the decade. Kusama’s work represents minimalism, feminism, and abstract expressionism, which at the time was revolutionary. This caught the attention of many in the fashion industry including Marc Jacobs, who worked as the creative director at Louis Vuitton at the time. To this day, that collaboration has been one of the most visually-captivating ever created, as agreed upon by many critics.
