June 26, 2023: In collaboration with Louis Vuitton, auction house Sotheby’s will auction off 22 classic artist-designed Louis Vuitton Artycapucines bags. Each of these Capucines bags was recreated using LV’s exacting savoir-faire and the 22 participating artists' signature style.

All the pieces in this splendid lineup are signed by the artist and given in a monogrammed Louis Vuitton Boîte Chapeau, which is a contemporary take on a vintage LV hat box created in 1924, each personalized by the 22 participating artists.
