In the newest Artycapucines collection, six acclaimed global artists reimagine the iconic Capucines bag in their unique way—Donna Huanca’s nod to the investigation of the female body with an intricate play of blue and white brushstrokes; Gregor Hildebrandt’s trademark “rip-off” technique and an LV signature inlaid with vinyl records; Huang Yixing’s signature oval motif alongside fluorescent hues of a rainbow landscape; Paola Pivi’s complex leather marquetry in yet another surreal exploration of animals in the form of a leopard; Vik Muniz’s playful charms adorning resued Heritage leather; and Zeng Fangzhi’s reinterpretation of a classic Van Gogh self-portrait.

The distinctive designs that speak extraordinary artistry and stunning craftsmanship are limited to 200 pieces each.
