‘W’ with a side of Louis V, please…

If you’re seeking creative inspiration this season you’re in luck as two highly anticipated fashion coffee table books are hitting stores. Today we celebrate Louis Vuitton Fashion Photography and W: Stories. I love a good fashion anthology and am quite excited to get my hands on these treasures!

The first, Louis Vuitton Fashion Photography was released October 14th, 2014 by publisher Rizzoli New York. This album, as it is being called, shares the brand’s advertising and editorial fashion photography history dating back to the 1950’s. The book includes over 200 photographs by featured photographers including William Klein, Jean Lariviere and Paulo Roversi.

This next book has already stolen my heart by pure association. W: Stories, born from the glorious W magazine, is a collection of their 10 top center pieces along with outtakes from each photo shoot. As a photographer this sounds amazing. Even W photographers and models have outtakes! As a bonus feature each book comes with a code giving access to short films from the sets of these stories. This book is the behind-the-scenes look we’ve always wanted into the world of fashion editorials.

Preview both books below and find out where to get your copies!
