While working from home for some might mean grabbing a cuppa and your laptop as you retreat to your bed to answer a backlog of emails from across the weekend, for Lea Seydoux it means turning your duvet into a makeshift photo studio.
The French actor and former Bond girl fronts Louis Vuitton’s latest campaign for their Capucine leather goods collection. Captured by legendary photographer Steven Meisel, Seydoux is stripped of all her belongings, besides her elegant, well-treasured Capucine. It’s an intimate relationship of course, tantamount to constant newly-wed bliss, and one based solely on classic design. “The Capucines represents the essence of French savoir-faire,” says Seydoux. “I’m very honoured to be the Capucines ambassador as it’s a handbag I love and wear all the time.”
The design in question is the House’s Capucines MM, displayed in a soft yet durable black Taurillon leather. Steeped in tradition and history, the bag itself lends it’s name from Rue Neuve-des-Capucins, the address where Louis Vuitton opened his very first store in 1854. Still fighting strong over two centuries later, the Capucines collection is thus a testament to the brand’s commitment to exquisite craftsmanship and timeless design.
