Where the runway meets the street

Rizzoli is set to publish this new book that highlights and examines the work and influence of Marc Jacobs on the Louis Vuitton house. Louis Vuitton / Marc Jacobs: In Association with the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris examines Vuittons long history from 1854 to the present. Never before seen examples of Vuitton’s work and craftsmanship are reviewed in each chapter.

The latter half of the book looks at Marc Jacob’s roles as Vuitton’s creative director – a position he has held since 1997. Jacobs took the “house into a new era with a series of collaborations with artists and designers—such as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Stephen Sprouse—as well as designing a line of highly successful and desired clothing for the company.” The 308 page Louis Vuitton / Marc Jacobs book arrives April 24. Available from Amazon.
