Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture

( 9 )

Overview

Luxury and art have never been more closely linked than they are in these early years of the twenty-first century. Virtually all the world’s major luxury houses have associated themselves with contemporary art through sponsorships, commissions, or foundations, and these points of exchange nourish the increasingly symbiotic relationship between fashion, art, and other design disciplines. Of all modern luxury brands, Louis Vuitton can claim to maintain the richest and most varied associations with the world of art....

Overview

Luxury and art have never been more closely linked than they are in these early years of the twenty-first century. Virtually all the world’s major luxury houses have associated themselves with contemporary art through sponsorships, commissions, or foundations, and these points of exchange nourish the increasingly symbiotic relationship between fashion, art, and other design disciplines. Of all modern luxury brands, 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 book is structured as a seductive anthology of the house’s most visible collaborations. Critical essays examine and position Louis Vuitton’s patronage—under the guidance of Artistic Director Marc Jacobs—during one of the most fertile periods of contemporary art and design.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"At a whopping 400 pages, including three book-in-books, "Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture" is a rich brew of all the house's creative associations..." ~Hint Magazine

"Many style books are compendiums of ad campaigns.  Louis Vuitton's revels in the collaborations of Marc Jacobs with Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince and Stephen Sprouse." ~InStyle Magazine

"Couture, art, and design collide in this lavish book celebrating the luxury-goods firm's creative collaborations with artists, photographers, and architects." ~Elle Decor.com

"The It accessory this fall may not be a bag, but rather a book.  Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture (Rizzoli) is a 400-page tome that chronicles the relationships between the storied brand and assorted luminaries in the art, architecture, and design realms." ~Nylon Magazine

"This tract tracks the French house's cross-pollinated conceptual approach to aesthetics, from the evolution of its iconic monogram canvas to the starchitecture of its international retail shops (Zaha Haddi, Shigeru Ban). Heady critical essays are interspersed amid the provocative ad campagine poses." ~Angeleno

"This book is a document of an astute company's ability to use architecture to spread its brand, while at the same time advancing architecture in its effects and aspirations." ~Archidose
