Louis Vuitton x Grace Coddington Catogram Collection: 2018’s most charming, cat lady capsule
Too many cat puns to choose from
It's no secret that Louis Vuitton's Nicolas Ghesquière is a Grace Coddington fan. In the September Issue, he fondly recalls an Alice in Wonderland-themed shoot styled by Coddington, for which he was asked to deconstruct and reassemble a complex dress on the spot. Talk about pressure! That cute anecdote speaks to the respect and affection Coddington commands from designers ever-ready to go above and beyond in service of her transporting vision.
For cruise 2019, Ghesquière invited his ailurophile friend to splash her whimsical feline illustrations — a hobby that eventually expanded into a book, titled The Catwalk Cats — on a capsule of accessories, shoes and silk separates.
Coddington's cats Pumpkin and Blanket are joined by Ghesquière's dog Léon on the brand's staple Neverfull and Speedy bags, as well as purses in the shape of their faces, where they are more prominently featured. As if that wasn't adorable enough, the capsule's bags are all lined in — wait for it — mouse-printed canvas. We squee.
