was the cover. And let me tell you, it looks AMAZING sitting on a coffee table. My mother has her fair share of Louis Vuitton handbags (at last count...ten) so this was the perfect gift for her. She absolutely LOVED it! However, I have also found myself drawn to the amazing pictures, history and wealth of information that this book offers. It is something that can be enjoyed by any fashion lover. I highly recomend this book, and so does my beautiful mum!!
If you are expecting just fashion, this is not the book for you. It contains storefronts, (hint:architecture in the title), art and just enough fashion to satisfy a woman. The actual book I received is a little shoddy.The binding does not seem strong and it feels the pages may come out with a lot of use. There also was
tearing on the title page next to the spine, this is a new book and I am a liitle
disappointed in the condition.
