Louis Vuitton Autumn Winter 2011-2012 Advertising Campaign

Steven Meisel has done such incredible photo shoots for the latest advertising campaign of Louis Vuitton Autumn Winter 2011-2012, featured in a very classic and vintage vibe.

The images come with six gorgeous models, including Zuzanna Bijoch, Daphne Groeneveld, Gertrud Hegelund, Nyasha Matonhodze, Anaïs Pouliot and Fei Fei Sun with fetish themed fashion combine.

Featuring awesome and stunning young girls with vintage cars, fetishistic fashions, furs, exotic skinned bags, and cute little doggies, not to mention the brand clothing collection for the season, this campaign has been well done by many professionals of their expertise, such as Steven Meisel photographer and another amazing collaboration of Pat McGrath and Guido Palau in makeup and hair section.

Louis Vuitton clothing was a naughty, risqué collection that riffed on S&M motifs (whips, corsetry, tight-lacing and masks), with extra ordinary accessories, including high-heeled rubber boots, officer caps, driving gloves and variations on the Lockit handbag, including one crocodile version that can be chained to a diamond-pavéd handcuff.

Louis Vuitton’s artistic director, Marc Jacobs showed his satisfaction of this campaign and said “Who wouldn’t want to be this gorgeous young woman in the back seat of this beautiful car?”, as he also mentioned about the point of this campaign, which is to take forward the French brand’s familiar travel theme.

For this cold season, the full campaign will be released to appear in magazines in August 2011 issues, and we may view the full advertising campaign at IL VOEL V in the coming weeks. This is another campaign by Louis Vuitton in a series, over the years, that does justice to the status and the glamour attached to the brand

Ladies, this is the Gucci bag I’ve been waiting for!

Over the past couple months, I’ve written about a couple different Gucci Boston Bags – one had logo fabric, the other had a signature check flanking the webbed center stripes. I liked both, but I don’t make a habit of buying bags that cost more than $300 or so if the main material isn’t leather, so neither option was on my radar for personal use.

This version of the bag, though? This I can use. And would use. And maybe will use? $1350 isn’t a price tag to sneeze at, but for a classic, functional leather bag (with a little bit of flair) from a highly sought-after handbag brand, it’s not as bad as it could be. Particularly not when you consider how much a Louis Vuitton bag with a similar design would go for. (Hint: three times as much.)

 

Comparing this bag to the Sofia Coppola x Louis Vuitton collection is perhaps not entirely fair, but the similarities are inescapable. The Vuitton bags don’t feature the webbed stripes down the center, which are a Gucci signature, but I think I actually like it better this way. Solid leather mini duffels aren’t hard to find, even if finding them in leather as nice as that of Coppola’s bags can be a bit challenging. Gucci uses perfectly reasonably materials, though, and the center stripes give the bag a preppy-traditional flourish that an all-leather option would lack
