Louis Vuitton reveal their AW15 campaign and it’s got not one, but two famed photographers behind it: Jüergen Teller and Bruce Weber.
“Series 3” expands on the visual exploration that Nicolas Ghesquiere has started. The third campaign, however, uses not one photographic mastermind, but two. With names like Juergen Teller (who has photographed everyone from O.J Simpson to Kanye West) and Bruce Weber (known for his seductive 90s Calvin Klein campaigns) it’s impossible not to fall in love with the latest Vuitton ads. Focusing on the diverse range of women that Ghesquiere has chosen to define Vuitton, the campaign features both well-known and fresh faces.
Teller took Alicia Vikander, Jennifer Connelly, Liya Kebede, Fernanda Ly and Angel Rutledge to a location near Barcelona to shoot them in an unnamed sculptor’s utopian home. The surroundings are sparse and colourless, complimenting the AW15 collection that brings it to life in a flurry of metallic co-ords, cami dresses and the classic LV monogram bag. The location is a reflection of Ghesquiere’s passion with modernist architecture.
Meanwhile Weber shot Freja Beha, Rianne Van Rompaey and Julia Merkelbach in a juxtaposing location – an old airfield. It could be an old movie clip from first glance with it’s cast of famous names. The models run across the airfield, longing for a far away adventure and wanderlust.
The collection is everything we would expect from the mega-brand. Statement shoulders and leather trousers make an appearance, fur coats are better and bigger than ever and we even spotted a Clueless inspired mini-skirt suit set. We’ll take two, please.
Alicia Vikander will be the new muse of Louis Vuitton, at just 26 she has already worked with some of the biggest filmmakers and actors and is set to feature in eight movies in 2015, which obviously makes her a fitting Vuitton girl.
