  • CITY BAGS: A NATURAL HISTORY

    The most recent illustrated book from Louis Vuitton ‘City Bags: A Natural History’ is unique, clever and playful.

    Adopting a semi-scientific approach to its most emblematic and iconic bags, Louis Vuitton presents the first comprehensive taxonomy of its city bags. Taking the typical categorisation of industrial design objects from last century, this book chronicles the development and evolution of the city bag by appropriating and mimicking the scientific classification of animals and plants. Speedy, Papillon, Alma, Lockit, Noé, Bucket, Neverfull and Pochette, these bags have become today indispensable for the ideal wardrobe. Descended from the four early specimens, The Steamer Bag, The Vanity Case, The Keepall and The Alzer Suitcase, the ancestry of the city bags is delineated in splendour.

    Available in French, English and Italian, this precious edition, published by Rizzoli NY, is exclusively available in Louis Vuitton stores.

    This unexpected and colourful photography series, provides a glimpse into Gaston-Louis Vuitton’s abundant personal collection.

    Representing the third generation of Vuittons, Gaston-Louis had many diverse interests which all were ultimately fundamental to the history of the House. Guided by his curiosity, his vision of travel and the desire to tackle subjects, his endeavors became, directly or indirectly, related to the future of the family business.

    An erudite and collector since his childhood, Gaston-Louis accumulated many trunks and old travel articles from antiques, and auction rooms, as well as books, typography publications and, more specifically, hotel stickers (usually stuck on customers’ trunks). He conveyed his sense of architecture and design in artistic collaborations with the cutting edge of his time, producing objects both functional and aesthetic, including small cases, flasks, toiletry kits.

    The selection of objects presented in this photo series tends to represent the rich diversity of his collection: most of these treasures were inspiration for the family business, others, like the “Despatch Box” suitcase or the crystal bottles set, were objects produced by the House in its will to always expand its field of activities and technical approaches.

    The suitcase, which was his personal attaché-case, perfectly embodies this excellence in craftsmanship combined with a unique functional aspect represented by the side slot, allowing its owner to insert letters and documents in a confidential and discreet way.
