Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs

Hi all,

So here is the promise look at the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs book from the exhibition at Les Musée de arts in Paris....

I loved this version of the classic LV speedy bag. The roses look like they have literally just been painted onto the material.
Louis Vuitton was, by trade a professional packer, then maker of trunks. This is one of the trunks which had an additional purpose! It contained a pop up camp bed.

That is one extreme skirt, I can imagine getting through doorways would have been ... interesting!
All of these miniature fashion pieces were displayed at the exhibition. I loved the detail in them, even though they are very small.

Hope you enjoyed this quick peak at this book. I still have a lot of reading to do, as it is a fairly big book!
