These bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman.
Profoundly influential, City Bags are now known to millions by their descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy) and are still evolving into more fantastical forms.
Lavishly illustrated with new and archival photography, historical graphics, landmark editorials, and ad campaigns, the volume traces the history of these specific bag families, and examines the earliest specimens and today's most sought-after collectibles.
Louis Vuitton: City Bags is an ambitious volume on the creation and cultivation of a cultural phenomenon.
