In searching for news about these days controversial Marc Jacobs monogramouflage and hoping to get an idea about it, I found a clip of the advertising campaign for Superflat Monogram by Takashi Murakami for Marc Jacobs (ahem.. Louis Vuitton).
Crocheting away on Alice in Wonderland Theme, this clip is a manga dream, in ways that only a psychedelic Japanese cartoon could do it.
Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art has first exhibited the Takashi Murakami limited Vuitton edition and now Brooklyn Museum in New York will host it for the 2nd time, launching monogramouflage (the MOCA launched the “Neverfull bag”). At least the Kanye West concert comes to embrace art (?) once more. The launch has already started controversy as such moneyfestation maybe shouldn’t be looked at as museum-fitted. What’s your opinion? Should “fine art expand” at handbags?
