Probably the foremost portrait photographer of our time, Annie Leibovitz began her career as a photojournalist for Rolling Stone magazine in 1970, becoming its chief photographer in 1973. She joined Vanity Fair ten years later, having established herself as the world’s leading rock music photographer and an astute documentarian of the social landscape. She has published several collections of her work, most recently A Photographer’s Life, 1990-2005, and has created acclaimed advertising images, including her portraits for Louis Vuitton’s Core Values campaign.
Annie Leibovitz never carries a purse, preferring to keep her hands free to hold a camera, and therefore requested a backpack with room for both her photographic equipment and personal effects. Louis Vuitton created a spacious and stylish design in Monogram canvas trimmed, unusually, with black leather and palladium-finish hardware. The interior, lined with ruby red microfibre, features several different compartments with cushioned protection for her valuable cameras and accessories, as well as adjustable Velcro pockets. Two sturdy padded straps enable Annie Leibovitz to wear her backpack comfortably for hours.
“At Louis Vuitton, a special order can be hard-sided or soft-sided it simply has to respond to the traveller’s needs. Annie’s piece is a perfect example of our expertise in creating a soft travel bag to hold and protect in all circumstances such a precious item as a camera.” – Patrick-Louis Vuitton
