Collaboration time...

Lets all run to Japan...maybe take your massive shoes off first...why? Here's why...

Louis Vuitton and Rei Kawakubo of Commes Des Garcons are opening a shop together in Tokyo which will last for 3 months from this September in an existing CDG store.

The shop will be selling six LV bags specially designed by Rei K, according to the bags will be "‘party’ bags", that "hark back to the styles of 30 years when Vuitton made only bags and leather goods", collector's pieces in the making if ever we saw one.

It may seem like an odd pairing, CDG being a ground breaking designer brand and LV being slightly more traditional but I will hold judgement until I see them...thats very safe of me.
