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.

Trains and steamships transformed transportation in the mid-19th century and opened the world to a new breed of traveler. Louis Vuitton understood the need for more practical luggage, and strove to create products that were adaptable to all situations—and the travel trunk was born. Authors Pierre Léonforte and Éric Pujalet-Plaà curate 100 of the finest trunks the Louis Vuitton company has produced on commission, including boxes made for movie stars from Douglas Fairbanks to Sharon Stone and couturiers from Jeanne Lanvin to Karl Lagerfeld, as well as cases designed for Ernest Hemingway, Leopold Stokowski, and Damien Hirst. Illustrated with 600 images taken from the Louis Vuitton archives and new photographs made especially for this book, this is the definitive history of personalized objects of both practicality and luxury.

In 1835, at the age of 13, a young boy walked nearly 300 miles to Paris; he worked odd jobs and did whatever it took to survive. He eventually learned a craft: box making. Before long, the young boy had earned enough to open his own box-making store. The tale may seem a bit unremarkable until you consider the boy’s name: Louis Vuitton. You know the brand, but not the man; take a look at the genius that created one of the most recognizable brands in the world with this biography.

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.
