The images feature Louis Vuitton products in everything from advertising campaigns to fashion articles spanning the Fifties to the present day.
The book is divided into three main sections — fashion articles since 1977, Louis Vuitton advertising campaigns and a flashback to the Fifties — each of which has an introduction by photography writer and curator Charlotte Cotton.
The limited-edition book features a white canvas cover with one of three different photographs, by Demarchelier, McDean or Bert Stern. It will be available starting Oct. 1 — in English and French versions — in select Louis Vuitton stores worldwide and through louisvuitton.com for 100 euros and $130. The bookstore edition will be sold beginning Oct. 15 for 75 euros and $85.
