cindy sherman : for louis vuitton

I was surprised and intrigued to see artist Cindy Sherman’s creation for Louis Vuitton’s Iconoclasts series, in celebration of the brand’s 160th anniversary. She created the Studio in a Trunk featuring drawers, a folding stool and adorned with vintage hotel labels — as well as a Camera Messenger bag.

Fitted with a luxurious vanity case, a Camera Messenger bag and a total of 31 drawers (to accommodate treasures large and small), the trunk’s interior dazzles with hues borrowed from the plumage of Mister Frida, the artist’s pet macaw. The Studio in a Trunk is produced in a limited edition of 25.

Dorky jokes aside, I just ordered these fern stamps from the USPS. And came across some other fern-inspired treasures thanks to a post by Shannon of HappinessIs.

Pretty cool fern print jacket by Leslie R Buchanan:
