big hugs to for these photos!

seattle, washington -- i always liked nordstrom. i can't say i've ever bought a single thing there, but i've written about them a lot. this u.s based retailer which specializes in high end items has a taste level and cache that truly makes it more than a department store. to further that appeal, they are releasing a brilliant ad campaign which will debut in spring issues of magazines like vogue and vanity fair. the photos are a collaboration between artist ruben toledo and photographer ruven afanador.

Richard Prince and Louis Vuitton Handbags
If you’ve ever followed the art world, or the world of art thievery, you’ll have heard the name

of Richard Prince. Richard Prince has been considered by some to be an art thief, while by others

he is considered to be a genius. Prince began his career in the art world in 1976 and has been

making headlines ever since. He creates what is known as “rephotography”, which is a copy of

someone’s work that he has taken to the next level. A short time ago, Prince chose to work with

jokes and began making paintings and rephotography that had jokes that he loved printed on them.
Louis Vuitton handbags have now been graced with some of the famous artist’s work. You can now

find select LV handbags that have been created with a number of Richard Prince’s favorite jokes.

Made using an acid canvas with Karung trimmings, the Monogram Jokes Heartbreak Red is a Louis

Vuitton handbag that definitely makes a statement. This handbag not only says something on the

outside, but on the inside as well, with a microfiber ochre lining and antique brass hardware. The

jokes may be funny, but this LV bag is definitely not.
