The Game Parade
Graphic artist Honet takes us on a psychedelic journey with this second part of our focus on Louis Vuitton and games.
Games have always been popular at Louis Vuitton: Gaston-Louis made and collected board games, and jugglers were even exposed in store windows playing yo-yo in the 1930’s. The legendary chessboard, but also games of skills, cards, or dominos were edited with the colours and style of the Maison for specific occasions. Later in 2008, Louis Vuitton chose to open a new game-playing area by creating a line of Monogram cases and chests for poker, backgammon, dice, and even mahjong.
For this second interpretation of the Louis Vuitton game universe, French artist and illustrator Honet has created this graphic video, in one continual, spiralling thread. These graphic compositions feature the many board and table games Louis Vuitton once created, ranging from the pool table down to the classic chess board whose pattern recalls the iconic Damier print of 1888.
