THE NEW LUXURY

Cutting up luxurious Louis Vuitton gown or one of its iconic monogrammed purses might be verboten—even sacriligeous—in most circles but don’t tell that to the 24 Parsons School of Fashion students who ripped into the luxury-goods purveyor’s archives with fiendish glee. No, they weren’t seized with a sudden, collective fit of insanity. Rather the designers were participants in “Reconstruction 2.0,” a daylong competition to turn deconstructed press samples into travel blankets-cum-conceptual art that embodied the spirit of Louis Vuitton. Click through our slideshow for a glimpse of the creative process, as well as the final looks that resulted.
