Louis Vuitton Celebrate Contemporary Art and Fashion - 27/8/09

Q: What's 400 pages and includes three book-in-books (not shop in shops)?

A: It's the soon-to-be released livre grand by the name of "Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture" due out in September. The tome celebrates the collaboration between Louis Vuitton and many known and unknown artists, architects, photographers and designers over a centenary (or so). According to a blurb on publisher Rizzoli's website, "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 pioneering house continues to be at the forefront of innovation looking to other complimentary and interesting areas such as contemporary art and design. As previously reported at The MO Down, these collaborations, in our opinion, add ongoing cache to the brand and reinforce the investment value in every purchase.
