This spring the art and fashion worlds cemented their mutual appreciation—in the form of products. Marc Jacobs and artist Richard Prince created much buzz at October’s Louis Vuitton spring 2008 show in Paris, when Prince brought a fresh perspective to the label’s logo by reworking the LV monogram.
And theirs isn’t the only art and fashion collaboration out there, nor is this type of pairing limited to handbags. Damien Hirst has collaborated with Levi’s to produce a collection of Swarovski crystal–encrusted denim jeans for the company’s Warhol factory X line for spring, and Swedish illustrator Liselotte Watkins has created vivid harlequin prints for the girlish smock minidresses in Miu Miu’s spring collection.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
