 Louis Vuitton's 2013 Travel Book

New York City is the  muse for Louis Vuitton’s 2013 Travel Book series. The fashion brand enlisted Paris-based fashion illustrator, artist, painter and cultural writer, Jean Philippe Delhomme to offer a visual interpretation of the things that he loves about the city. Jean Philippe sought out to draw inspiration from New York’s  strong lights, shadows and extreme visual cues. His vision  for the illustrations was to visually communicate his passion for New York, unfiltered by any commentary.

In the artist’s own words, the project “offers a new and contemporary vision of travel, both real and virtual. Intended as an art of work in themselves, they each depict each destination  through the eyes of an artists in 100-200 exclusive drawings.”

This is an interesting example of a fashion brand taking an unconventionally artistic route into the travel sector.
