Before all these collaborations here and there exploded like poptarts being blasted by Decepticons, whoever in charge in the house of Louis Vuiton that time sure made a genius decision of including Helmut Lang to design a vinyl case for the house. I so want one even if it's the only monogram LV I will ever own (I tried but I just couldn't live carrying a monogram LV).
To celebrate Louis Vuitton's 100th year of the LV monogram in 1996, they collaborated with designers like Azzedine Alaia, Manolo Blahnik, Romeo Gigli, Isaac Mizrahi, Sybilla and Vivienne Westwood. The accompanying ad for the LV x Helmut Lang case features the legendary rapper Grand Master Flash. LV is truly a trailblazer when you think nowadays it's just so common for anybody - moviestars, designers, musicians, artists and even bloggers to collaborate with a clothing brand. See the link here.
