Annie Leibovitz guest designs for Vuitton

Times might be hard for legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz at the moment, but that sure hasn’t stopped her upping her uber-fashionable game by turning designer. As one of six personalities tapped by French fashion house Louis Vuitton to come up with a signature special order piece to be auctioned off for charity, Leibovitz will design a monogrammed canvas backpack alongside Marc Jacobs, Damien Hirst and others. Requesting a large enough style to accommodate her personal effects, photo equipment and leave her hands free, Leibovitz’s design is trimmed in black leather and lined in red with a matching shoulder bag. The designs will be auctioned off at London’s Sotheby’s in London on 17 November in aid of the Red Cross, but here’s hoping she’s able to take home some commission. Leibovitz may have reached a settlement with her creditors after nearly losing both her home and rights to her work, following debts that made up a whopping $24 million, but something tells us she could still use a few extra bucks…[WWD]
