Louis Vuitton: City Bags


This volume is an unprecedented history of Louis Vuitton’s women’s bags, the most successful line of accessories in women’s fashion.

At the heart of Louis Vuitton, arguably the most recognizable luxury brand in the world, are its City Bags, a range of women’s bags that date back to the turn of the 20th century. Featuring the trademark monograms of the house, the City Bag story began with the Steamer, a resort bag that was designed in 1901 to be packed inside a much larger steamer trunk; these bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. From day-bags to work bags to clutches, these City Bags are distinguished by their witty and often practical aesthetics. Profoundly influential, they are now known to millions by their very descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy), and are still evolving into more fantastical forms.
