Louis Vuitton AW11 x Pop Artist Barry Reigate










In an editorial splashed with cartoon art from pop artist Barry Reigate10 Magazine has teamed up with photographer Christian Anwander to shoot Marike Le Roux (styled by Sophia Neophitou) clad in top-to-toe Louis VuittonThe fashion house has long been a fan of going graphic, and combined with Reigate's signature humour, the result is a theatrical and edgy spread, featuring floating logs, clown faces and candy-land like bubbles superimposed onto Anwander's pictures. The pieces from L.V.'s AW11 collection are also cleverly showcased without being overshadowed by the art. I'm pretty sure that wouldn't have been the case if Reigate had taken inspiration from his 2005 work "Criminology". In a macho fetishism of painting with a frivolous twist, the artwork featured a cluster of disembodied breasts with gloved letchy Mickey Mouse-esque hands (below).
