Takashi Murakami Wraps Louis Vuitton 5th Avenue

Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has worked numerous times with French leathe goods brands Louis Vuitton. This Holiday season the artist will wrap the entire 5th avenue New York City store.

“Louis Vuitton on Fifth Avenue is being wrapped for the holidays by Takashi Murakami.

The French luxury leather goods company is erecting a vinyl installation this weekend that will cover the entire store in Murakami’s iconic Monogram Multicolore print for the house. The installation will begin going up today and will be completed on Sunday.

“The idea to wrap the Fifth Avenue maison in Monogram Multicolore came about earlier this year in an effort to do something truly unique for the holiday season,” said Daniel Lalonde, president and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton North America.
