Trains and steamships transformed transportation in the mid-19th century and opened the world to a new breed of traveler. Louis Vuitton understood the need for more practical luggage, and strove to create products that were adaptable to all situations—and the travel trunk was born. Authors Pierre Léonforte and Éric Pujalet-Plaà curate 100 of the finest trunks the Louis Vuitton company has produced on commission, including boxes made for movie stars from Douglas Fairbanks to Sharon Stone and couturiers from Jeanne Lanvin to Karl Lagerfeld, as well as cases designed for Ernest Hemingway, Leopold Stokowski, and Damien Hirst. Illustrated with 600 images taken from the Louis Vuitton archives and new photographs made especially for this book, this is the definitive history of personalized objects of both practicality and luxury.

In 1835, at the age of 13, a young boy walked nearly 300 miles to Paris; he worked odd jobs and did whatever it took to survive. He eventually learned a craft: box making. Before long, the young boy had earned enough to open his own box-making store. The tale may seem a bit unremarkable until you consider the boy’s name: Louis Vuitton. You know the brand, but not the man; take a look at the genius that created one of the most recognizable brands in the world with this biography.

A large-format tribute to the influential brand's most visible collaborations features critical essays that examine and position the firm's patronage, in an exploration of the art, fashion, and architecture that was created in conjunction with such notables as Annie Liebovitz, Vanessa Beecroft, and Olafur Eliasson.
In 1976, Kyojiro Hata joined Louis Vuitton to take over the reigns of a brand that at that time lacked any identity and was underdeveloped. In a few short years he turned it into the most sought after brand in Japan, and participated from Asia in giving Louis Vuitton a new breath of energy. At the same time, he created a new business model that has come to be used by many other brands wanting to enter the Japanese market. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the famous brand, Kyojiro Hata explains for the first time the brilliant vision that guided him in this exemplary success story.
The windows of Louis Vuitton's storefronts are magnetic. Onlookers stand with eyes wide in wonder at such spectacles as a colossal roller coaster, a panoply of brightly colored hot-air balloons, or a universe of polka dots. With an oeuvre of over thirty-five displays, creators Faye McLeod and Ansel Thompson bring the windows of one of the world's leading luxury brands to life with unparalleled magic. Featuring an introduction by The New York Times fashion director and critic Vanessa Friedman, these celebrated vitrines are presented as works of art in this hand-bound oversize Ultimate Collection edition, capturing the inspired world that is Louis Vuitton.
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. Examining the life and times of the company's first three leaders; founder Louis (who invented the modern trunk), his son Georges and his grandson Gaston, the text focuses on the firm's development under their guidance. 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.
