9th March 2022

A lavish tribute to the traditional craftsmanship behind the iconic luxury titan.

Featuring photographs commissioned exclusively for this book, this volume showcases the locations and buildings of Louis Vuitton’s workshops and the artisans that create for the brand. From trunks to bags, fragrances, watches, shoes, high jewellery and ready-to-wear fashion, Vuitton is one of the most recognisable luxury fashion labels in the world and Nicholas Foulkes, contributing editor to Vanity Fair and How to Spend It, has compiled a lavish look-behind-the-scenes love letter to the Artisans that create the couture. 

Featuring more than 350 beautifully presented photographs over 400 pages, Manufactures takes the reader on an international tour of Vuitton's private studios and workshops, with many of the locations situated in inspiring areas of natural beauty.

From its founding in Paris in 1854 to its early 2022 show featuring the final work of the late designer Virgil Abloh, Vuitton’s creativity and craftsmanship has always shone through and this coffee table compendium is a slick and exquisite celebration of (as brand chairman and chief executive officer, Michael Burke, puts it)  “people who love making stuff with their hands.”
