Louis Vuitton launches pop-up for Grace Coddington collection
today Oct 26, 2018
The luxury French fashion house's artistic director of womenswear, Nicolas Ghesquière, has teamed up with the iconic creative director at large of US Vogue on a feline-themed capsule collection dubbed ‘Catogram'. To mark its launch, Louis Vuitton is opening a temporary boutique in the Big Apple's Meatpacking district later Friday that will remain open through November 12, WWD reports.
‘Catogram,' which was first unveiled at the house's cruise show back in May, spans ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories featuring quirky details, such as cat and dog-shaped clutches that Coddington herself has been teasing on Instagram. The series will launch globally on November 2.
The collaboration is the latest of several big-name design projects for the Welsh-born Coddington, who began her career as a model but made a name for herself as a legendary Vogue stylist. Previous entrepreneurial projects for the industry heavyweight include a collaborative fragrance, "Grace by Grace Coddington," for Comme des Garcons, which was released in 2016, and a ‘Face to Grace' talk show featuring stars such as Ansel Elgort and Sofia Coppola.
