Made In Korea: Kakao Friends X Louis Vuitton Exclusive Collaboration
Kakao Friends are making friends in pretty high places these days!
Ryan, Apeach, Tube, and friends have teamed up with French luxury brand Louis Vuitton to create an exclusive line of gift shop items fans can pick up when attending the “Louis Vuitton: Volez Voguez Voyagez” exhibition at Seoul’s famed Dongdaemun Design Plaza.
Running through the end of August, the exhibition showcases major highlights of Louis Vuitton’s history in fashion, spanning over one and a half centuries. Attendees to the event are the only ones who have access to products from the exclusive collaboration, and pictures of what they’ve got to sell have us absolutely drooling with envy!
Want to take a peek? (Warning: Heavily cute and subtly chic Kakao Friends below.)
Attendees each receive a special KakaoTalk collaboration card, which gives them a special KakaoTalk X Louis Vuitton emoticon pack they can use for 30 days.
The emoticons themselves are incredibly high fashion and feature our favorite Kakao Friends in some very editorial-ready poses – riding yachts, flying private jets, and buried in Louis Vuitton’s iconic logo luggage pieces.
Many of these emoticons are available as large stickers, so you can rock your favorite character on notebooks, laptops, and more.
The images are also available as embroidered patches than can be put on clothes, bags, and more to make your very own customized items.
For the fashionista willing to drop cash, Louis Vuitton created a special version of their Vachetta leather luggage tag featuring Kakao Friends’ popular Ryan character. Only 1,000 were made, each being sold for 245,000 won (approx. $215 USD). Each tag can be custom embossed with your initials on site.
If you’re going to be visiting the Seoul area sometime this month, make sure to stop by Dongdaemun Design Plaza’s Louis Vuitton exhibition to get your hands on some of this limited edition swag!
