About the Book



Two decades of fashion history in the making, told through a sumptuous array of images straight from the catwalk



Book Synopsis



Two decades of fashion history in the making at Louis Vuitton, told through a sumptuous array of images straight from the catwalk

"[A] stylish coffee table book... to liven up your living space."--Lauren Eggertsen, Who What Wear

Founded as a luxury leather goods house in 1854, Louis Vuitton was for many decades one of the world's leading trunk and accessories makers. It was through the launch of its first fashion collections, however, that the house reached unprecedented fame, becoming one of the most influential and valuable luxury brands in the world. This definitive publication is the first to provide an overview of Louis Vuitton's influential designs.

It opens with a concise history of the house, followed by brief profiles of designers Marc Jacobs and Nicolas Ghesquière, before exploring the collections themselves. Organized chronologically, each collection is introduced by a short text unveiling its influences and highlights, and illustrated with carefully curated catwalk images. The volume showcases hundreds of spectacular clothes, details, accessories, beauty looks, and set designs--and, of course, the top fashion models who wore them on the runway.

An essential book for anyone interested in fashion, Louis Vuitton offers a complete and unrivaled picture of the collections of the world's top fashion house through original catwalk photography.
