  • WOMEN’S SHOES: ZOOM ON THE ZIP

    For the occasion of the Fall 2014 launch of the women’s shoes collection, John Wright captured a series of graphic pictures highlighting the feature of the season: the zip.

    This line of daytime and evening shoes is vamped with zips that rock each model to modernize any silhouette. Brogues, loafers and ankle boots are made from calf or waxed calf leather. Sandals and low boots are crafted with python and suede goat leather that flatter the arch of the foot.
    In a skillful trompe-l’œil, a play on perspective, pairs of shoes have stomped through the emblematic public squares in Paris - Place de la Concorde, du Trocadero, du Louvre, etc. – under the aesthetic eye of Scottish photographer and film director John Wright.

  • THE LEOPARD STOLE IN NEW IRRESISTIBLE SHADES

    The iconic Leopard stole, and its ingenious interpretation of Stephen Sprouse’s design, unleashes a palette of additional colours, for the Fall 2014 women’s collection.

    A tribute to New York pre-grunge artist and fashion designer Stephen Sprouse, who collaborated on Louis Vuitton's iconic 2001 graffiti collection, the Leopard stole has become one of Louis Vuitton’s must-have accessories.

    A delicate blend of cashmere for warmth and silk for softness, these timeless scarves offer an enveloping feeling, in an effortless style, to wear in cold weather as well as warm nights.

    Blurry shades of light grey brightened up with coral, a chic and classic taupe, and the Camouflage patterns are part of the new Icons shot under Brynn Hewminway’s direction in the film above.

  • “SERIES 1” FASHION FILMS – THIRD OPUS

    The “Series 1” Louis Vuitton campaign is like a mirrored projection of all images to come in an unprecedented, boundless form of expression with Jurgen Teller taking things further in this third opus

    Annie Leibovitz, Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber produced three photographic stories on the same day, at the same time, in very different venues. They are photographers, artists, undoubtedly commentators on modern times, each given this vast arena by Nicolas Ghesquière to interpret not only his fashion collection but also his idea of fashion...

    Who better to express a sharp vision on fashion than Jurgen Teller and his distinctive, raw and overexposed visual approach? Freja Beha was captured in the Scandinavian pavilion of Venice’s Giardini della Biennale, for this highly personal fashion film.

  • “SERIES 1” FASHION FILMS – SECOND OPUS

    As part of “Series 1”, Louis Vuitton's new campaign, discover how Bruce Weber captured on film models Liya Kebede, Jean Campbell and Kirstin Liljegren.

    Exercising their own style, three photographers, Bruce Weber, Jurgen teller and Annie Liebovitz, shared their personal and very precise vision of modern-day fashion. They willingly agreed to play this enjoyable yet risky game where they offered their distinct visions to critical examination.

    For Nicolas Ghesquière, “It’s a way to bring together an artistic family which I feel close to.(…) Only they could rise to the challenge of being brought face-to-face with one another, and ultimately combined to create a single story, because their visual expression is so powerful that it goes beyond all forms of classification or definition.”

    Discover Bruce Weber’s vision of the project with this short fashion film.
