This volume is an unprecedented history of Louis Vuitton’s women’s bags, the most coveted line of accessories in women’s fashion. At the heart of Louis Vuitton are its City Bags, a range of women’s bags that dates back to the turn of the twentieth century. Featuring the trademark monograms of the house, the City Bag story began with the Steamer, a resort bag designed in 1901 to be packed inside a much larger steamer trunk. These bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. Profoundly influential, City Bags are now known to millions by their descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy) and are still evolving into more fantastical forms. Lavishly illustrated with new and archival photography, historical graphics, landmark editorials, and ad campaigns, the volume traces the history of these specific bag families, and examines the earliest specimens and today’s most sought-after collectibles, including Vuitton’s collaborations with Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama, and Rei Kawakubo and one-off projects by Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Andrée Putman, and of course, Marc Jacobs. Louis Vuitton: City Bags is an ambitious volume on the creation and cultivation of a cultural phenomenon.

The groundbreaking images created in London's celebrated commercial darkroom tell the fascinating story of one of the most productive, experimental, and colorful eras in fashion photography. For more than 30 years, Brian Dowling's studio was the birthplace of some of the most remarkable fashion photography ever created. In his Islington darkroom, using specialist analog equipment, Dowling shepherded amazing images from negative to paper captured by the likes of Anton Corbijn, Juergen Teller, and Nick Knight. Dowling's BDI studio was also responsible for a number of technical innovations in color photography, paving the way for many of today's digital effects. This tribute to Dowling includes extensive interviews, commentary, testimonials from his clients, and numerous examples of iconic haute couture photographs that passed through his hands. In addition, a series of photographs specially commissioned for this volume demonstrate Dowling's groundbreaking techniques: cross-processing, masking, filtering, layering light, and color fades. Dowling's hands-on achievements and alchemic talents are showcased in this beautiful ode to fashion photography.

This, the third book in the celebrated series by renowned German fashion photographer Juergen Teller (born 1964) and Nicolas Ghesquière (born 1971), artistic director of Louis Vuitton, proves that their audacious collaboration is as alive as ever. Perhaps more explicitly than its predecessors, "I Just Arrived in Paris" (2014) and "The Flow" (2015), "Juergen Teller and Nicolas Ghesquière: Season Three" tells the story of a fashion collection as it evolves through photography-in this case, Ghesquière's creations for Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2015/16. Divided into named chapters, the book shows the changing guise of the collection as Teller photographs it for different purposes and in individual moods: be it press-kit photos, streetscapes and still-lifes, candid bathroom scenes, backstage and runway shots, a fashion editorial for "AnOther Magazine" or the advertising campaign. As ever with Teller, his photos reveal an irreverent, sometimes brazen take on the world of luxury, and rethink the line between fashion and life. This monograph and unique collaboration between fashion and photography is a true collectible for all those interested in fashion photography.

The first in depth portrait of one of the world's best known luxury brands, this elegant volume traces the remarkable history of the House of Vuitton, which has been making practical but stylish luggage, handbags and accessories for more than 150 years. Written with full access to the company's archives, the book itself demonstrates Louis Vuitton's passion for fine design with a stunning array of archival art, historical images, product designs and sketches, and cutting edge advertising. The book explores the company's tradition of quality and innovation in the context of sweeping changes in society, art, culture, fashion and, above all, travel.

It also discusses Vuitton's explosive growth toward the end of the 20th century, including the 1987 merger with Moet Hennessy that made it part of LVMH, the world's largest luxury goods company and spurred the expansion of its boutiques to more than 300 locations in 50 countries around the globe.

Best of ... Horst Diekgerdes --One of the Most Eccentric Visual Creators of the Past Two Decades Not many fashion photographers get to see their pictures become part of the pop-cultural mainstream. The cover the German photographer Horst Diekgerdes created for the Britpop band Pulp's album This Is Hardcore was that rare stroke of genius: under the guidance of the legendary art director Peter Saville, Diekgerdes captured a young woman --she might well be a porn star--in a sexually explicit pose. The album became a smash hit. Diekgerdes has been working in the scene since the 1980s, also creating pictures for the world's coolest fashion magazines, led by AnOther Magazine, as well as numerous fashion brands including Sonia Rykiel and Chloé. His technical proficiency is widely regarded as second to no one's. Arranging the lighting, discussing image definitions and focal lengths, selecting locations, choosing models--he leaves nothing to chance and is not above perfecting a model's hairstyle and makeup. After many years in Paris, the fashion capital, where he regularly attends fashion shows, Diekgerdes is now based in Zurich but travels the world for work. His pictures have been on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the Fotomuseum Winterthur, and the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg. Publications including Purple, the British, Chinese, and Japanese editions of Vogue, Numéro, AnOther, GQ Style, and Dazed & Confused are among Diekgerdes's regular clients. He also created pictures for advertising campaigns by Sonia Rykiel, Louis Vuitton, Lacoste Polo, MiuMiu, Chloé, Joop, Kenzo, Levi's, Thomas Burberry, Rochas, Hermès, and Victoria Beckham. His first monograph is a celebration of life, fashion, and photography in the form of a photographic journey from the mid-1990s to the present combining fashion photographs with pictures from his personal diaries, observations of everyday life, and previously unpublished works. Jefferson Hack, Anastasia Barbieri, Véronique Leroy, Jina Khajjer, and Jean-Pierre Blanc contributed essays.

On 5 March 2014, Juergen Teller photographed the eagerly anticipated first collection by Nicolas Ghesquiere as the new artistic director of Louis Vuitton. In his inimitable style, Teller visualizes the designer's ambitious manifesto for the luxury house: "Louis Vuitton is a land of contrasts. A time-honored and noble legacy is kept alive by a yearning for discovery and exploration. Coursing boldly and imaginatively through the decades, Louis Vuitton refreshes the world of fashion with an untiring ebb and flow of retrospective and fresh perspective. This initial collection tells a tale of expertise made possible by innovative techniques. It focuses on the highlights and remains open to interpretation. Living proof that today's 'timeless' was at one time seen as innovative. In this collection, the timeless is now." This book is a collaboration between two of the most influential vanguards working in contemporary fashion. Teller's candid unadorned aesthetic perfectly complements the restrained luxury of Ghesquiere's fashion, marking the beginning of a new chapter in the rich history of Louis Vuitton.

A master of eroticism's dark potential, Helmut Newton redefined fashion photography in the 1950s and 60s--and perhaps even modern sexuality. Newton's influence has grown to be monumental in scope and impact. Photographing for magazines like Playboy and Vogue, Newton was provocative, to say the least, in his portrayals of stylized erotic scenes, often featuring sado-maschostic undertones. This new monograph of Newton's work showcases the landmark photographs that were a product of a close collaboration between Newton and stern magazine. Spanning 27 years and featuring photographs that have never before been reproduced in book format, this book reflects Newton's diverse talent and exuberant spirit.
