Founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton launched its first fashion collection in 1998. Unprecedented global fame ensued, as did pioneering high-profile collaborations with artists such as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Stephen Sprouse.
Louis Vuitton Catwalk records the hugely influential collections designed by artistic directors Marc Jacobs (1998–2013) and Nicolas Ghesquière, who helms the House today.
Every ready-to-wear collection is represented from the arrival of Ghesquière onwards. Louis Vuitton Catwalk is completed with an introduction by Jo Ellison and designer profiles and collection texts by Louise Rytter.
With over 1,350 images, this treasure trove of inspiration will be the musthave reference for all fashion professionals and Louis Vuitton fans.
Jo Ellison is Fashion Editor at the Financial Times and author of Vogue: The Gown. Louise Rytter is a freelance fashion curator, writer and online editor.
She is Content Editor for the Google Cultural Institute “We Wear Culture” project and was previously Assistant Curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
