Newsflash: Murakami's Exhibition & Limited Editions at MOCA

Does the name Takashi Murakami sound familiar? Well, it should. Murakami is the artist who collaborated with Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton to bring us collections such as the Monogram Cerises (Cherry), Sakura (Cherry Blossom), the Monogram Multicolore Range and other cutesy Limited Edition collections at the House of Vuitton.

From now until February 2008, Murakami's artworks will be featured at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. But wait, there's more! For the duration of Murakami's exhibition at MOCA, there will also be an Exclusive Louis Vuitton Store at the venue!

Unlike your regular Louis Vuitton Boutique, this one that is specially set up at MOCA features only products specially designed for the occasion by Vuitton and Murakami. The exhibition store will feature a new Murakami-designed 'Neverfull' bag with an LV Hands print and a round Monogram canvas coin purse with the same design. In addition to that, Murakami has also designed a Limited Edition diary/organizer/Agenda/Year Planner featuring a new character called Chibi Kinoko (Little Mushroom printed on Vuiton's signature Monogram Canvas, Monogram Multicolore (available in both Black and White).
