Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Talking Points -

Hot on the heels of its streetscene world tour, Louis Vuit­ton teamed up with three in­ter­na­tional street artists on its em­blem­atic silk square. The colour­ful col­lab­o­ra­tions be­gan last sea­son with Aiko, Retna, and Os Ge­meos, all of whom con­tin­ued the sto­ried mai­son’s tra­di­tion of mem­o­rable part­ner­ships with con­tem­po­rary tal­ents the likes of Stephen Sprouse, Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Mu­rakami, and Richard Prince. Join­ing in for Au­tumn/Win­ter ’13 are Eko Nu­groho from In­done­sia, Ben Eine from the UK, and Franco-Tu­nisian El Seed.

Born in Yo­gyakarta, Eko is no stranger to Louis Vuit­ton’s world of con­tem­po­rary art, hav­ing pre­vi­ously shown in the ‘Fan­tasy Is­lands’ group ex­hi­bi­tions in Hong Kong and Sin­ga­pore as well as ‘Trans­fig­u­ra­tion & Con­tem­po­rary Mytholo­gies’ in Paris. This sea­son, he clev­erly mixed ur­ban and pop influences with tra­di­tional In­done­sian mo­tifs on the Trop­i­cal Gi­ant Square, upon which blue and khaki scales cam­ou­flage a myth­i­cal beast of clash­ing hues.
