Womenswear designer Jonathan Riss rolled out a limited-edition “Embroidery Collection” featuring Louis Vuitton pieces earlier this year. The eponymous women’s label titled JAY AHR first launched back in 2005. On the brand’s Instagram page, a few additional pieces have been shared recently. One of the pieces from the aforementioned vintage embroidery collection was a large Louis Vuttion carry-all with a design on the front that appears as though it has been stamped on the piece.
Lenny Vuitton first caught our eyes after he created a custom Louis Vuitton handbag for Cardi B. Originally a fine artist, he now utilizes his current designs to merge “cultures, styles, interests and lifestyles,” as the artist explains to us via email. His striking work features vibrant colors paired with eccentric detailing. For the custom “Kulture” Lenny Vuitton bag, he created a piece which highlights graffiti, money and consumerism.
A recent graduate of Oregon State University, New York-based artist Jynwaye calls herself “funemployed.” Her designs center pop culture characters such as Sailor Moon and The Power Puff Girls. Her Instagram feed is filled with options like tote bags, backpacks and even customized electronics. Her eye-catching designs are nostalgic and colorful.
