After receiving this wonderful book as a gift for myself and my coffee table, I had to share its existence with my fellow fashion lovers. Louis Vuitton City Bags: A Natural History” by Rizzoli NY is filled with information (and beautiful glossy pictures!) about the rich and lengthy history of one of the worlds most coveted luxury handbag designers. Did you know that Louis Vuitton was selling women handbags in the late 1800’s? I also had no idea that the super-recognizable classic Louis Vuitton monogram didn’t even come into existence until the 1950’s! Now I can’t even imagine their brand without it…

Filled with tons of information on the evolution of your favorite handbag styles and fun pictures of various Louis Vuitton ad campaigns over its history, this book is inspiring and a must-own for any fan of one of the best handbags money can buy.
