The Warmest Color

March 2nd, 2015 |Posted by Irene

Louis Vuitton unleashes its latest Spirit of Travel campaign and the results are mesmerizing. Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, this season we arrive in a turquoise paradise starring the serene efforts of Liya Kebede, Julia Nobis, and Maartje Verhoef where they roam through the French West Indies adorned with the newest trunks and handbags that Vuitton has to offer. The pristine, azure waters and a late-60s, floral vibe from Nicolas Ghesquière’s Spring/Summer collection brings us out of the slum of Winter to a sartorial utopia.

Vuitton 2.0

January 7th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

No other designer could pull together Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber and Juergen Teller (Camilla Lowther Management) for one campaign, but Nicolas Ghesquière does it for the second season in a row with the Series 2 campaign for Louis Vuitton. Ghesquière’s streetwise spring collection built on the ideas he laid out in his first collection for the brand and the triple-header campaign does the same for Vuitton’s visual identity. With longtime muse (and former model) Jennifer Connelly leading the pack, Ghesquière focuses on women whose innate cool meshes well with the laid back look he’s been building at Vuitton. Models Marte Mei van Haaster, Rianne van Rompaey, Daphne Simons, Jean Campbell and Freja Beha Erichsen serve as stars and bring with them a sense of youthful chic. With locations ranging from an art-filled Parisian townhouse to the top of an unfinished Manhattan skyscraper the eclectic images from Weber, Liebovitz and Weber make for a flawless campaign.

LV Overload!

August 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one collection that is getting editorial love this September it is Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut for Louis Vuitton. While LVMH is generally no slouch in the editorial department, Ghesquire’s work has gone that extra mile – appearing on the cover of or within the pages of almost every single September issue thus far. For fans of the designer’s work the constant sight of logo printed belts and playful dresses has been an appealing constant thread amidst the past few months of editorials and covers, but how much is too much? Take a look at the line’s recent front page appearances and decide. Stylists show no signs of slowing down with their Vuitton obsession so you can expect to see the iconic luxury label rack up even more covers as the month winds down.

September’s model domination of magazine covers continues with a stellar showing from down under. Vogue Australia’s simple and effortless image is a testament to less is more – when you have an incredible model, great photographers and a choice piece from Nicolas Ghesquière‘s Louis Vuitton collection you need nothing more.

September Reign

July 30th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

By now we’ve all heard the story about celebrities taking precious magazine cover spots away from models, but this September it appears the tides have turned. After years of stars on the front pages more and more magazines are looking to models for their biggest fashion issues. British Vogue boasts Cara Delevingne looking sleek in Nicolas Ghesquière‘s collection for Louis Vuitton in an image by Mario Testino (Art Partner), while Elle UK enlists a Prada clad Kate Upton for fashion forward shot by Matt Jones. Though the September covers are only just starting to debut you can already see which collections are going to be inecapable for the next few months.  WSJ provides a fetching seventies style image of Daria Werbowy by Josh Olins that also puts Ghesquière’s wares to good use. In keeping with the trend The New York Times’ T Magazine reaches for Prada, sheathing Vanessa Axente in one of the brand’s oversized coats in a strong cover image by Craig McDean.

Vuitton’s New Groove

June 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As one of the ultimate luxury brands Louis Vuitton has to take things just one step further than the rest. Case in point Nicolas Ghesquière‘s first campaign for LV, which boasts three of photography’s biggest names – Juergen Teller, Bruce Weber and Annie Leibovitz. Each superstar was given free reign to interpret Ghesquière’s fall collection and photograph some of his many muses. Naturally Liya Kebede, Freja Beha Erichsen and Charlotte Gainsbourg make appearances and newcomers Jean Campbell and Kirstin Liljegren star alongside the three Ghesquière vets. The striking Series 1 ads are a completely new direction for LV and serve to usher in the brands thrilling new chapter under Ghesquière.
