Last week I attended the cocktail Vuitton hosted to present it's new window: a piece of art by Nadim Karam. The lebanese artist has been collaborating with Vuitton for a year now. He got involved with the famous Fashion House when they decided to create the first Family Room ever in a luxury shop. The result was presented in March 2011, was and still is impressiv. The artist worked with kids to create a joyful, and chic piece of art called the "Travelling Elephant" which is made up of 12 individual canvasses worked on by each child that come together to produce one final and emotional piece.
Lately, the Artist ran an other project with Children based on Sweets and Pastries, and his last collaboration can be seen in the Vuitton Windows at the Mall of Emirates and is a piece of art evoking his Chidhood Souvenirs.

I can somehow relate to this piece: it reminds me of the kitsch Children Books my Grandparents used to read us in the 80's, in the South of France.
