In the world of fashion, collaborations are a constant thing. Season after season, we see collabs of different designers and even celebrities with several fashion names.

Louis Vuitton’s latest collaboration offering, however, is one of the biggest ones we’ve seen yet.

To celebrate their iconic monogram, Louis Vuitton teamed up with big names in the industry, including rivals Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Louboutin.

Also in the A-list roster are Comme des Garcons’ Rei Kawakubo, photographer Cindy Sherman, architect Frank Gehry, and industrial designer Mark Newson.

All geniuses in their field, these artists got together to create what could possibly be Louis Vuitton’s most epic collaboration project to date.

The Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection includes a variety of bag styles ranging from more normcore-looking ones with stud details and patchwork to completely quirky offerings that have holed-up leather and unusual silhouettes.

These babies have really expensive price tags, but we’re not really surprised. Judging from the names included in the collab roster (and because of the LV stamp), we’ve already anticipated that the handbags will be hurting our wallets.
