After Karl Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton launches a print magazine

 Simply called The Book

This October, the French leather-goods giant Louis Vuitton will launch its new biannual, in-house magazine simply called The Book, whose first issue boasts Charlotte Gainsbourg on the cover and an exciting interview with no less than Catherine Deneuve inside.

The debut issue, comprising 126 pages, also includes a men’s-wear shoot in Iceland by Peter Lindbergh and a feature telling the story behind vintage Keepall bags in monogram canvas, the oldest being 31 years old.

The glossy will be translated into 11 languages and mailed to a select customer base.

Demonstrating Ghesquière’s approach to fashion, he 'dissects' the number-one exit from his debut show: a coat, dress and boots worn by Danish model Freja Beha Erichsen.

Describing his style, he said, “She’s wearing clothes that we are all familiar with and that may reference various times in the past. And yet, ultimately, this look is ageless and timeless as well as fresh and spontaneous.”
