Lea Seydoux's first campaign for Louis Vuitton
Fashion / /
After we were able to look at the gorgeous Michelle Williams and Alicia Wikander for the past couple of years, we are getting a fresh new face for the campaigns of Louis Vuitton. And it is Léa Seydoux.
The new campaign for Louis Vuitton's bags and suits collection is pretty simple as a matter of fact. By now we have learned to expect exotic settings and wild animals as well as empty never-ending roads in the visual campaigns from the French luxury brand. But this time the set is quite simple, the architectural masterpiece of Luis Barragán, the modernist ranch Cuadra San Cristóbal.
With the pink painted walls in the background, the focus is at Léa Seydoux herself. The 'Spectre' and 'Blue is the warmest color' actress appears in items from the brand's pre-fall collection; like classic black suit and white dolcevita or on the other photos we can see her in romantic dress with riffles. The styling was handled by Marie-Amelie Sauve and the photograph are signed by Patrick Demarchelier.
The colors of the clothes are tamed down to black and white, with some graphic dresses and discrete floral prints and all of that is done so we can focus on the Capucines and City Steamer bags. Bright pink crocodile leather one is the one to stand out. The other bags from the collection just follow up, red leather, color block with neutral tones and the brand's recognizable logo.
The ad-campaign will be featured in UK edition of Vanity Fair first. It comes just in time for Cannes Film Festival where Léa Seydoux (once awarded with Palme d’Or in 2013) will appear to promote her new movie 'It's only the end of the world' directed by Xavier Dolan. The movie also casts Marion Cotillard, Nathalie Baye, Vincent Cassel and Gaspard Ulliel.
