A fusion of fantasy and innovation, Louis Vuitton’s approach to branding has redefined expectations towards everything from accessory design to fashion interiors and city streetscapes. The name conjures up the very essence of luxury, yet the label’s cutting-edge architecture, playful interior design, and the presence of Vuitton’s international stores are a separate force to be reckoned with, one that’s given welcome limelight in Louis Vuitton Architecture and Interiors.
Mohsen Mostafavi, Frédéric Edelmann, Ian Luna, and Rafael Magrou explore the brand’s innovative structures via interviews with the architects and designers who created them such as Peter Marino and Zaha Hadid. Fashion, interior design, and architecture merge into their own style. The book costs $85 , Rizzoli New York .
