Louis Vuitton Catwalk: The Complete Collections
By Louise Rytter
Fashion Curator Louise Rytter brings us Louis Vuitton Catwalk, an excellent comprehensive overview of Louis Vuitton’s cutting-edge fashion collections. Exquisitely wrapped in the iconic orange cloth, the book thrusts us into the world of luxury fashion before even turning a page.
Founded as a leather goods house in 1854, Louis Vuitton launched its first ever collection in 1998. Since, it has pioneered high profile collaborations with artists such as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince and Stephen Sprouse, and Rytter details to us every step of that journey. She records the hugely influential collections designed by artistic directors Marc Jacobs (1998–2013) and Nicolas Ghesquière, who helms the House today. Each collection is aided by a designer profile and brief overview of the inspiration and influence.
Supported throughout by 1,350 jaw dropping photographs from on the catwalk, we see all the splendour of the fashion industry, alongside some iconic rarely seen creations as well. A fashion lover’s dream, and ultimately a treasure trove of fashion inspiration.
