An exhibition of his latest works, entitled Continuation will be at the Sepentine Gallery from 26 June - 7 September, and to mark the exhibition Louis Vuitton on London's Sloane Street will be selling 50 Limited Edition, Jamais handbags, designed by Marc Jacobs and Richard Prince himself.
The collaboration is not the first time Marc Jacobs (an avid art collector) has teamed up with an artist for Louis Vuitton, he famously worked with Japanese artist Takashi Murkami on 2001's hottest bag, that saw Louis Vuitton's classic monogram transformed with candy colours and cartoon eyes, as well as the the co creation of the graffitied Speedy with American artist Steven Sprouse.
Profits from the sale of the Jamais bag will go toward the Sepentine Gallery and will be on sale for the duration of the exhibition.
