1 Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture
Details: An ode to one of the most recognizable brands in the world, this book is covered in pop artist Takashi Murakami’s colourful take on the LV monogram that has made the handbags of Louis Vuitton so coveted (and so reproduced). Between the covers, you’ll find essays and photos of recent collaborations between Vuitton and luminaries from the art and architecture world such as Zaha Hadid, Takashi Murakami and David LaChapelle, under the direction of once-chunky, now-hunky fashion superstar Marc Jacobs.
Who will love this: Fashion addicts and Louis Vuitton devotees. Owing to its bright colours on a white background, this square, thick book will steal the show, and will probably look best on a sparsely decorated surface. It’s the perfect coffee table book for someone just starting his or her collection.
