Coppola for LV

Despite the fact that, as we reported last month, Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs is getting sick of the fashion house's frequent collaboration projects, director Sofia Coppola has just signed on to design a new capsule collection for the brand. Coppola, a close friend of Jacobs' who recently appeared in a Vuitton ad (above) with her famed father Francis Ford Coppola, will reportedly create a range of handbags and shoes for the company. Though nothing's been confirmed, it's expected that the new collection will initially only be available in Japan like LV's current collaboration with Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo.
