Louis Vuitton Catwalk
The Complete Fashion Collections
By Jo Ellison and Louise Rytter
A complete and unrivalled overview of the collections of one of the worldâ€™s top fashion houses through original catwalk photography.
Founded as a luxury leather goods house in 1854, Louis Vuitton was for many decades one of the worldâ€™s leading trunk and accessories makers. It was after launching its first fashion collections in 1998, however, that the house reached unprecedented global fame, and pioneered high-profile collaborations with artists such as Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami and Stephen Sprouse.
This definitive publication opens with a concise history of the house, followed by brief biographical profiles of Marc Jacobs, the first creative director (1998â€“2014), and Nicolas GhesquiÃ¨re, who helms the brand today, 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. Showcasing hundreds of spectacular clothes, details, accessories, beauty looks and set designs â€“ and, of course, the top fashion models who wore them on the runway, from Naomi Campbell and Gisele to Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne. A rich reference section, including an extensive index, concludes the book.
