With an epic eye for photography (and a world of trouble in her personal/financial life), photographer extraordinaire, Annie Leibovitz teamed with Louis Vuitton for a luggage design project.
Her design will be auctioned off at London’s Sotheby’s, November 17th with all the proceeds going for the Red Cross. Annie Leibovitz custom LV design is about black leather trimmings and red lining, bonus a camera shoulder bag with outer zipped compartments. (the story continues right after the jump with more images!)
Her special monogrammed canvas design joins fellow charity-designed trunks signed by Marc Jacobs (a dog carrier), Damien Hirst (surgical tools trunk), Argentine Gustavo Santaolalla (Babel and Brokeback Mountain composer who designed a musical instrument trunk), Patrick-Louis Vuitton (yep, that’s like in Louis Vuitton family! his passion for painting drove him to design a painting tools trunk). Given that Sophia Coppola’s designs for Louis Vuitton were an undeniable, unexpected success, will Annie Leibovitz rise to the same huge design-popularity?
(I sincerely think she will, especially with that camera shoulder bag which, I’m sure, will become a huge fash-hit in the ranks of street-fash-photographers/bloggers! A good camera bag costs the world, anyway, so I don’t expect the less from a good camera bag with a fashion label designed by a such a renowned photographer!) (via 1, 2)
