Virtually all the world's major luxury houses have associated themselves with contemporary art, and nourish the increasingly symbiotic relationship between fashion, art, and other design disciplines. Of all modern luxury brands, Louis Vuitton can claim to maintain the most varied associations with the world of art. Included in this volume are Louis Vuitton's important collaborations with an elite group of artists, architects, designers, and photographers. The book is structured as a seductive anthology of the house. Critical essays examine and position Louis Vuitton's patronage-under Artistic Director Marc Jacobs-during one of the most fertile periods of contemporary art and design.
