Annie Leibovitz, Damien Hirst Designing For Vuitton
Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz is trying her hand at designing for Louis Vuitton.
Leibovitz has joined a host of other famous faces who are creating a new piece of luggage for the luxury brand to help raise money for Red Cross. Annie’s bag takes the form of a backpack lined in red, complete with several different pockets to make transporting camera equipment easier.
British artist Damien Hirst, famed for artworks that featured dead animals preserved in formaldehyde, has also created a piece—his is a big black trunk featuring drawers to store the surgical equipment he uses for his artworks.
Louis Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs has also got in on the action, creating a trunk to put his dogs in so they can fly with him on planes. The specially-created items will be sold at London’s Sotheby’s auction house on November 17.
The sale is to mark 150 years of the Red Cross, a charity which aims to help people worldwide without discrimination.
