Louis Vuitton has tapped six contemporary artists to bring their touch to one of its iconic bags: the Capucines...

There's no denying that art and fashion go hand in hand. At Louis Vuitton, both worlds have cross-pollinated resulting in artisanal savoir-faire in just about everything the maison produces.

One of its signature handbags, the Capucines bag, is a prime example as it has been treated as a blank canvas to six artists around the world so that they can beautifully reimagine versions of the piece of arm candy.

Bringing their ideas to life, the celebrated international artists include Beatriz Milhazes, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Josh Smith, Henry Taylor, Liu Wei and Zhao Zhao, who have all created stunningly worked versions of the iconic Capucines bag.

Browse through the reimagined handbags below...

From October 30th, each bag in the Artycapucines collection will be released in a limited edition of 200 in selected stores worldwide.

Now, discover Louis Vuitton's new LV Volt collection.
