MIKE KAGEE FOR WORLD FASHION TRENDS

Since establishing it's reputation as a purveyor
of fine monogrammed luggage over a century
ago, the Louis Vuitton brand has evolved to meet
the demands of modern women and men
both in terms of fashion, trends and lifestyle.
This evolution is explored in an almost scientific
rigor in "Louis Vuitton City Bags"
A natural history, a new illustrated book
published by Rizzoli
The book includes images from Bert Stern's 1967
shoot for Vogue featuring British supermodel
of yesteryear Twiggy posing with the Papillon bag
and the Louis Vuitton toilette pouch.
