The first comprehensive overview of Louis Vuitton’s cutting-edge fashion collections, from their debut in 1998 to today, presented through original catwalk photography.
Founded as a leather goods house in 1854, Louis Vuitton launched its first fashion collection in 1998. Unprecedented global fame ensued, as did pioneering high-profile collaborations with artists such as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Stephen Sprouse.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the unveiling of the house’s first women’s collection, Louis Vuitton Catwalk records the hugely influential collections designed by creative director Marc Jacobs (1998–2014) and Nicolas Ghesquière, who helms the brand today.
Every women's Ready to Wear collection is represented, as well as Cruise collections since the arrival of Ghesquière onwards. Complete with an introduction by Jo Ellison, designer profiles and collection texts by Louise Rytter, this book offers a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the most iconic luxury brands in the world. With over 1,350 images, this treasure trove of inspiration will be the must have reference for all fashion professionals and Louis Vuitton fans.Catwalk Fashion show Books Photography
For Li Kunwu, as a Chinese artist, Cuba resonates strongly, the island’s history mirroring that of the Middle Kingdom.
“I’ve been hearing about Cuba since I was little. In the 1950s, our two countries developed excellent relations. Deep down, I always knew I’d go there one day.”
He marvels at the similarity of Cuban landscapes with the scenery in his native Yunnan and is captivated by these Cubans with their similar destiny. The passion he felt there followed him all the way to his studio, where he created over three hundred drawings, including inks, colors, lignes claires, portraits and landscapes. The diversity of styles reflects the intensity of his emotions and the profusion he encountered when he was in Cuba.
Li Kunwu grew up during the Mao era, in a China swept by the Cultural Revolution. A born artist, Li drew constantly, using his pens and brushes to carve out a path for himself and recount his journey.Travel Books Illustration

Rome as portrayed by Miles Hyman is like a woman, an elusive woman of mystery, seen on a street corner, in the shadows of a terrace or on a balcony.
Look away for an instant and she’s gone. Just like Rome. The city responds to his approach, offering up its beauty. It becomes “energetic and dynamic, charged with a fleeting beauty, joyous — the elements of the poetry in its everyday life”.
The city’s inhabitants take precedence over its monuments. “Today,” Miles Hyman says, “I realize that the Rome Travel Book could have been called Travel Book of the Romans. I absolutely wanted to capture the daily life of the inhabitants of this enchanting city with honesty and admiration — I am tempted to say “tenderness”. Why did I want to stress the human element of the city? Because, for me, the key to the city is the striking contrast between its ephemeral life and the eternal.
Miles Hyman is an illustrator of periodicals and adapts novels — most of them detective stories. He also writes graphic novels. His drawings give the impression that he could have been a writer, with a style somewhere in between that of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Joseph Conrad, or even a film director. It can be seen in the line, in the depth of the colors.Travel Books Illustration
