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.
