American Vogue’s famous former Creative Director, Grace Coddington, has done it again. The beloved fashion editor, known for her iconic photoshoots and eccentricities that caught the spotlight in the popular 2009 documentary The September Issue, worked with Louis Vuitton and their womenswear Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière to create a capsule “Catogram” collection featuring Coddington’s whimsical drawings of her cats, Pumpkin and Blanket, as well as Ghesquière’s dog, Léon.

The new collection features leather goods, accessories, shoes, and clothing, each featuring one of Coddington’s adorable illustrations. The combination of the brand’s iconic Monogram pattern and embellishment of hand-drawn figures bring a unique liveliness to classic LV styles.

The refined daywear is embellished with smiling dogs, clutch bags have cartoon cats, and sneakers are sparkling with feline figures. Grace Coddington has always been celebrated for her innate creative talent and everlasting youthfulness, but now she has expertly infused her personality into the unparalleled craftsmanship of Louis Vuitton, making for a compelling collaboration.

Last night saw the opening of the New York City exclusive pop-up, running from October 26th to November 12th in the Meatpacking district. Celebrities like Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore, Sienna Miller, Justin Theroux, Sofia Coppola among others were in attendance to unveil the exciting new collection.

The Catogram capsule is part of  LV’s Cruise 2019 collection that showed earlier this year.
