Think horror movies and sci-fi novels
For the latest Louis Vuitton campaign, Nicolas Ghesquière threw it back to retro movie posters and book covers, and tapped friends of the brand to star on the covers.
His muses include Léa Seydoux in an “Exorcist” T-shirt worn under a shiny cocktail number; Emma Roberts in a scarlet red dress; Sophie Turner dressed in tailored look with some chunky boots; and Deepika Padukone wearing quilted green boots with a sharp grey coat.
Photographed by Collier Schorr, Ghesquière also commissioned book covers and film posters for B movies to complete this ambitious campaign that showcases the key pieces from a diverse collection, which was clearly designed to mix and match in unexpected ways.
“This meeting of periods, stylistic movements and anachronistic combinations brings to life a rich cast of costumes, reads the press release. “In such a ‘wearable library’, each out t writes its own chapter made up of romantic monologues. Peculiar dialogues between stylistic rebellion and fine craftsmanship. An account of sportswear’s encounter with tailoring.”
