Editorial Reviews

Review

"For those who can’t travel to Paris to see the current exhibit, Louis Vuitton/Marc Jacobs chronicles the storied past and present of the fashion powerhouse." ~Harper's Bazaar
 
"Presenting an array of antique pictures mixed with essays from its top tastemakers, the book is a testament to how prominent the brand remains to be within the fashion industry." ~Fashionotes.com

"...chock full of glossy pics, editorial throwbacks, and a little bit of history about both the men that shaped fashion beyond comprehension." ~ Refinery29.com

This is a nicely produced book focusing on the contributions of both Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs to the world of fashion.
The book is divided into two sections, the first is devoted to the history of Louis Vuitton and its rise as a powerful label. The text is enhanced by several clear b&w photographs,rare archival materials, and some period advertisements.
The second section focuses on the reign of Marc Jacobs, his creations and artistic collaborations. This section is mostly pictorial. The fashion shoots are clear, large and colorful, and they present a selection of Jacobs' creations and campaigns since he took the helm at Louis Vuitton.
The book ends with a small section reproducing a selection of small photos highlighting the label's recent ad campaigns and fashion shows.
The overall quality of the book is beautiful and it is a recommended addition to any fashion collection.

Book clearly outlines history and evolution of Louis Vuitton company, products and family organization. It revealed facts I was not aware of such as how a fourteen year old young man, who could not read or write, invented a way to transport clothes for travelers in the 1800's and became a global business success. A remarkable story. The photos offer a view of a number of trunks and the quality of craftsmanship that led to their fame. The images demonstrate how the travel items were coded in a manner to signal to porters as to which traveler's bags to spot and carry. The coded images also created one of the most famous logos in the world. It makes a global enterprise seem more personal and allows one, surprisingly, to see that the snooty luxury trade stereotype does not always fit. A good discovery and read.

I just wasn't wowed by this book. It was only about Marc Jacobs and his short collaboration with LV. Not that many pictures and lots of copy about things I just wasn't interested in. If you're a March Jacobs, you might like it.

This book is absolutely stunning. It comes with a book cover, which is seen in the main photo as well as the gallery, that ends with a diagonally-slanted flap which reveals the actual cover of the book (the white background, gold letters). The book feels sturdy and durable while still retaining a sense of high quality. It is obvious that this book was meticulously crafted. From the feel of the pages to it's textured cover, this book represents everything Louis Vuitton stands for. The book contains text about Louis Vuitton's life and the progression of the company from a small boutique to the internationally-acclaimed fashion house it is today. The Louis Vuitton portion of the book also includes photos of early Louis Vuitton projects and commentary on the fashion at that time. The Marc Jacobs section of the book, however, elaborates on the era of experimentation on products brought on by Jacob's direction, rather than focusing to much on the company itself. Overall, this book is incredible and the photos are extremely glamourous. This book is definitely a "must buy" for any fashion lover, like myself, or anybody who appreciates photography. One thing I will say, though, is that the preview for this book is somewhat misleading, as there are much more photographs in the book than presented in the preview.

Book was a little dented on binding with is a bummer but not a deal breaker. Other than that it is beautiful and in wonderful everywhere else. Product was received within two days of ordering it, which was a nice surprise because I was expecting to get it in no less than a wee!
