Louis Vuitton   Exercises in Style with Retna, Aiko & Os Gemeos | Video

Through a frenetically edited short film, Louis Vuitton introduces a new project in which the luxury fashion house tabbed three luminaries from the world of street art to put a new spin on the brand’s iconic silk scarves. Retna, the celebrated graffiti writer from L.A., interprets the Louis Vuitton trademark on a cashmere/silk stole with a combination of water colors. Tokyo-born Aiko infuses the giant silk scarf with splashes of color, traditional kimono patterns and the artist’s signature pop-art lady, collaging them with the LV monogram. Rounding out the trio is Os Gemeos, comprising twin brothers from Sao Paulo famous for their large-scale installations and murals. Their contribution is a regular silk scarf featuring a mosaic sun-and-moon pattern, symbolizing equilibrium and balance. Check out the video below, and find the pieces available now through Louis Vuitton’s online store.
