The first in depth portrait of one of the world's best known luxury brands, this elegant volume traces the remarkable history of the House of Vuitton, which has been making practical but stylish luggage, handbags and accessories for more than 150 years. Written with full access to the company's archives, the book itself demonstrates Louis Vuitton's passion for fine design with a stunning array of archival art, historical images, product designs and sketches, and cutting edge advertising. The book explores the company's tradition of quality and innovation in the context of sweeping changes in society, art, culture, fashion and, above all, travel. Examining the life and times of the company's first three leaders; founder Louis (who invented the modern trunk), his son Georges and his grandson Gaston, the text focuses on the firm's development under their guidance. It also discusses Vuitton's explosive growth toward the end of the 20th century, including the 1987 merger with Moet Hennessy that made it part of LVMH, the world's largest luxury goods company and spurred the expansion of its boutiques to more than 300 locations in 50 countries around the globe.

"Luxury and art have never been more closely linked than they are in these early years of the twenty-first century. Virtually all the world's major luxury houses have associated themselves with contemporary art through sponsorships, commissions, or foundations, and these points of exchange nourish the increasingly symbiotic relationship between fashion, art, and other design disciplines. Of all modern luxury brands, Louis Vuitton can claim to maintain the richest and most varied associations with the world of art. Included in this volume are Louis Vuitton's important collaborations with an elite group of artists, architects, designers, and photographers, such as Jun Aoki, Shigeru Ban, Vanessa Beecroft, Olafur Eliasson, Zaha Hadid, David LaChapelle, Jean Larivière, Annie Leibovitz, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Stephen Sprouse, James Turrell, Inez Van Lamsweerde, and Vinoodh Matadin. The book is structured as a seductive anthology of the house's most visible collaborations. Critical essays examine and position Louis Vuitton's patronage--under the guidance of Artistic Director Marc Jacobs--during one of the most fertile periods of contemporary art and design"--Publisher's description.

This volume is an unprecedented history of Louis Vuitton's women's bags, the most successful line of accessories in women's fashion. At the heart of Louis Vuitton, arguably the most recognizable luxury brand in the world, are its City Bags, a range of women's bags that date back to the turn of the 20th century. Featuring the trademark monograms of the house, the City Bag story began with the Steamer, a resort bag that was designed in 1901 to be packed inside a much larger steamer trunk; these bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. From day-bags to work bags to clutches, these City Bags are distinguished by their witty and often practical aesthetics. Profoundly influential, they are now known to millions by their very descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy), and are still evolving into more fantastical forms. Lavishly illustrated with new and archival photography, historical graphics, landmark editorials and ad campaigns, the volume chronicles the development of the City Bags through a system mimicking the scientific classification of plants and animals. Tracing the origins and history of these specific bag 'families,' the book examines the earliest specimens to today's most sought-after collectibles, including Vuittons collaborations with Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama and Rei Kawakubo; and lesser known designs and one-off projects by the likes of Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Andree Putman, and of course, Marc Jacobs. Reflecting changing preferences in the design of fashion accessories, and not incidentally, the political, economic, and sexual emancipation of women, Louis Vuitton: City Bags is an ambitious volume on the creation and cultivation of a cultural phenomenon.

An exploration of the dynamic and innovative architecture and interiors commissioned by Louis Vuitton. A prescient advocate of contemporary interiors and architecture, Louis Vuitton continues to encourage innovation and playfulness in the designs of their retail spaces without losing sight of the essence of luxury central to its identity. This process of designing places to display high-style objects has created a new venue for cutting-edge architecture and transformed city streetscapes. This exploration of Louis Vuitton's international stores, as well as industrial sites and unrealized projects, includes interviews with some of today's most talented architects and designers who discuss the beautiful and complex structures they have produced in collaboration with Louis Vuitton. This book examines the physical aspects of these buildings as well as the ideas that went into their composition. Acting as both a backdrop for luxurious retail goods and the physical manifestation of the brand, these spaces are a genre unto themselves that invite exploration. With luxurious finishes and unexpected textures, these fantastic buildings represent the intersection of fashion and interior design. The book includes interviews with Jun Aoki, Peter Marino, Christian de Portzamparc, David McNulty, and Christian Reyne.

Chosen by Louis Vuitton to be one of only a handful of artists to illustrate their new Travel Book series, Taniguchi naturally made a story of it! After his mother's death aged 78, the author discovers a beautifully lacquered box which contains what appear to be old photos and hand-drawn postcards of Venice. One photo of Piazza San Marco particularly catches his eye. It is of a Japanese couple feeding a multitude of pigeons in the square dressed in what looked like 1930's styled clothes. Who were they? What relevance did they have for his mother? Armed with the contents of the lacquered box he travels to Venice to track down the places and events displayed in the images and to discover the identity of the young couple in the old photograph. With very few but well chosen words and his artist's eye for detail, Taniguchi portrays 'La Serenissima' of today in a most deserving light.
