Can a handbag be a work of art? Louis Vuitton certainly seems to think so.

This fall, the fashion house is once again teaming up with Jeff Koons on a collection of bags featuring iconic paintings by Franc?ois Boucher, Paul Gauguin, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, J. M. W. Turner, and Nicolas Poussin.


Inspired in part by Koons's "Gazing Ball" series, the new collaboration picks up where the first Masters collection, which highlighted works by Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Peter Paul Rubens, Jean-Honoré Fragonard and Vincent Van Gogh, left off.


"They are part of my DNA," Koons says of this new set of paintings.

"When somebody walks down the street with this bag, or sits in a cafe with this bag,” Koons says of the Manet Neverfull style, "it’s communicating a love of humanism."


As with the first iteration of Masters, Koons has once again manipulated Louis Vuitton's iconic monogram into his initials. Each bag also features a rabbit tag, a nod to motif he has used throughout his career.

The LV x Koons collection is available in stores now. Prices range from $585-$4,000. See all the pieces now on louisvuitton.com.
