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.

Designer Marco Sodano recreates these three famous paintings with pixelated Lego art. So cool to realize the depth of our familiarity with these images plus the power of color and shape to suggest great detail.
