Louis Vuitton has launched the collection: "City Guides" with the goal of letting fashion photographers show their perspectives of a city, region, or country. In "Fashion Eye California" we are able to follow the talented photographer Kourtney Roy as she traveled through California during her two month long road trip.
What set's Roy's collaboration with the Louis Vuitton apart from other guidebooks is her use of retro imagery, and her immersion into California road trip car culture. Her car doubled as a mobile studio and wardrobe. With her car packed with wigs, vintage clothes, and accessories she hit the open road in search of locations to shoot, she states in an interview published on Bon.se
Louis Vuitton's first five book titles are being released in November. First out is Fashion Eye California by Kourtney Roy, followed by Shanghai by Wing Shya, Miami by Guy Bourdin, Paris by Jeanloup Sieff and India by Henry Clarke.
