The story of the Louis Vuitton empire is perhaps one of the more classic tales of a well-crafted product that has withstood the test of time. However, the new book published by Rizzoli, Louis Vuitton/Marc Jacobs, takes a deeper look into the core elements which became the foundation to the brand's longevity. The first half of the book chronicles the innovations by Vuitton and the latter half focuses on the role Jacobs had in catapulting the luxury brand into a new stratosphere. Behind the craftsmanship were geniuses who pushed the boundaries of the brand to where it is today. All good book stores should be stocking this book from April, and it will also be available through the Rizzoli online shop.
