In 2003, Louis Vuitton launched the famous collection called Multicolore. The project was the result of a deal between the former creative director of the French Maison, Marc Jacobs and the Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. The artist created the famous monogram prints for the bags and accessories of the collection.
But now, according to WWD, the Murakami's creations were phased out of retail locations under new designer Nicolas Ghesquière. A store associate at Louis Vuitton's Saks Fifth Avenue shop-in-shop in New York City told the trade publication that the collection is "leaving stores at the end of July, forever."
For a time, the Multicolore handbag was the absolute must-have accessory for Louis Vuitton’s clientele including celebrities.
What remains of the collection in that particular store are a few bags and others leather goods, which are displayed at the entrance. About this fact, Louis Vuitton declared that the brand has made this choice in order to “look forward".
However the French maison didn't leave so much time to all the "Multicolore" lovers to mourn the end of the collaboration, in fact a new project is already in progress. Even if we'll miss the iconic“Multicolore” bag, Louis Vuitton has already thought about a new collection, we are talking about the Stephen Sprouse’s “SC” series expected to be release in a new range of colourful motifs during the fall season. We are certain that this new collection will definitely have a place in our closets.
