Angelina Jolie flashes new Louis Vuitton bag

Louis Vuitton’s latest bags are being flashed by the rich and famous in Hollywood, with Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie spotted sporting a shopping bag from the fashion house’s new special anniversary collection.

The star was photographed in Los Angeles on November 30 stepping out of a luxury SUV with the new bag created by French shoe designer Christian Louboutin as part of the house’s ‘Celebrating Monogram’ collaboration with six art and design legends.

Jolie has been a fan Louis Vuitton for several years and has also appeared in the house’s advertising campaigns.

Louis Vuitton traces its roots back to 1864, when French entrepreneur Louis Vuitton Malletie launched a luggage business in Paris, and its LV monogram, designed by Vuitton’s son in memory of his father, has gone on to become one of the most recognisable symbols in the world.

This year, to commemorate the 160th anniversary, Louis Vuitton asked German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, Canadian-American Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, American photographer Cindy Sherman, Australian industrial and product designer Marc Newson, Louboutin and Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo, to reimagine the fashion powerhouse’s iconic LV monogram.

The collection includes Louboutin’s Shopping Bag and Shopping Trolley; Sherman’s Camera Messenger and Studio In A Trunk; Gehry’s Twisted Box; Lagerfeld’s Punching Bag in three sizes, Punching Suitcase and Punching Trunk; Newson’s Fleece Pack; and Kawabubo’s Bag With Holes.

Meanwhile, actress Charlotte Gainsbourg and supermodel Liya Kebede were among the celebrities spotted wearing Louis Vuitton at the British Fashion Awards which were held in London, UK, on December 1.

Louis Vuitton’s Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquiere won the 2014 International Designer Award at the star-studded event.
