Louis Vuitton 1978

FOUND IN TRANSLATION.
THE SECRET AND FULL CATALOGUE. EIGHTY EIGHT PAGES OF PRODUCT
DESIGN, ONE PATTERN AND
ONE MONOGRAM. THE 1978 JAPANESE SUPERBOOK IS OFFICIALLY THE UNOFFICIAL BEST BRAND BOOK EVER. 


The best brand book. Every product in production in the Louis Vuitton world circa 1978. The history. The how it is made. The how it is worn. The whole story in one unofficial / below the line / off the radar / hitherto undocumented superbook. 
 

Got to love the Translate app. "Secret and full product catalog of Louis Vuitton". Also reads menus, street signs and Haruki Murakami in the original. 
 

And now the book. We don't need an app to comprehend these pages. The most extraordinary, complete and detailed design reference to LV bags and accessories anywhere in print. 
 

A few favourites. Les sacs chien, la petite baguette sac pour les ballons ping pong (we are making this French up by the way), the folding travel bag (run out of vocabulary) et un cendrier. The latter accessory being INCREDIBLY COOL and probably just as heavily used in Tokyo as Paris. The twin world centres of smoking.
 

Street style Paris style. Quite the most unlikely look. But then it is the most surprising book. See more of its superness on this link
 

New favourite photograph! We have two copies of the book right now and two more on the way. We get the feeling we could sell quite a few more if they weren't so extra hard to find. So be quick to click to it and hit up the button below.
