Louis Vuitton has chosen actor and director Xavier Dolan as the male face of Louis Vuitton’s new advertising campaign. The campaign shot by Alasdair McLellan celebrates Ombré, Louis Vuitton’s recent line of leather goods, featuring two iconic bags – the Keepall and the Cartable.
Since he first stepped on the scene at only 20 years old with his debut feature film J’ai tué ma mère, Xavier Dolan has been referred to as “Quebec cinema’s boy wonder”. His fifth feature film, Mommy (2014) won the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. At only 26 years old, he was selected to be on the 2015 Cannes Film Festival jury presided over by the Cohen brothers, becoming the youngest member ever.
2016 will see Xavier Dolan release his sixth film Juste la fin du monde and will also mark the release of his first English-language film, The Death and Life and John F. Donovan.
