I recently had the great pleasure of collaborating with Louis Vuitton.
Louis Vuitton’s Noe bag was originally designed in the 1930’s to carry 5 bottles of champagne. Can you imagine going out into the countryside with nothing more than a picnic blanket and 5 bottles of champagne in your bag?
I imagined a picnic in a vast, open landscape on a long hot Summer’s day, where the sweet afternoon rain cools down the earth and kisses your cheeks.
… I thought of my youth in Australia and walking for miles and miles without seeing another soul to the point where the landscape becomes a companion; wandering its magical expanses and seeking the perfect spot to rest…
… I recalled the haunting beauty of my favourite Australian artist Norman Lindsay’s Sirens and the evocative film, Picnic at Hanging Rock, which tells a story of schoolgirls entranced by the landscape.
Some 80 years on from its creation, the Noe bag continues to inspire the imagination to wander.
never seen such gorgeous photos, you’re so unreasonable BEAUTIFUL . Wish I can see more
