Basically every relevant city has a mind-blowing Louis Vuitton building. Or should we say, a city is relevant the moment it has a Louis Vuitton building? One thing never changes: no matter how impressive the building, no matter how luxurious the interior, there’s always that leading role for that bulky stackable trunk. Well done, Louis.
This book examines the physical aspects of these buildings as well as the ideas that went into their composition. Acting as both a backdrop for luxurious retail goods and the physical manifestation of the brand, these spaces are a genre unto themselves that invite exploration. With luxurious finishes and unexpected textures, these fantastic buildings represent the intersection of fashion and interior design. The book includes interviews with Jun Aoki, Peter Marino, Christian de Portzamparc, David McNulty, and Christian Reyne.
