In Review: Louis Vuitton Fashion Photography


Cover/ Patrick Demarchelier, 2014
Louis Vuitton is one of my favourite fashion houses and Louis Vuitton Fashion Photography provides a fascinating look at the photography associated with the designer and the brand.

Since the 1920s, the images of Louis Vuitton—both advertising and editorial—have proven mesmerizing to the client, changing the way travel, fashion, art, and culture is viewed by individuals across the world. The elegant Charlotte Gainsbourg graces the cover, whilst individuals including Gisele, Cara Delevingne and Madonna can be found inside.

Flashback/ William Klein, 1958
This exceptional album features over two hundred images by the most important modern and contemporary photographers including David Bailey, Henry Clarke, Patrick Demarchelier, Karl Lagerfeld, Annie Leibovitz, Helmut Newton, David Sims, Bert Stern, Juergen Teller, Mario Testino, and Bruce Weber, with images from iconic Vuitton advertising campaigns, and magazine editorials from publications including  Vogue, L’Officiel, Numéro, V, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, W, Egoïste, Love, and Pop.

This book perfectly chronicles the house's style, history and fashion and it is an essential read for fans of the fashion house, photography and art.
