Reflecting the collection’s deliberate ambiguity, the Louis Vuitton Spring 2019 ad campaign brings us not to a space-age setting but the historic Le Bristol Paris Hotel. The storied address on Faubourg Saint Honoré provides a richly pictorial backdrop to the eclectic Spring collection.
First presented in October at the Louvre in Paris, the Louis Vuitton Spring 2019 collection embarked on an exploration of empowerment. Recalling both recurrent motifs and new imagined landscapes, Nicolas Ghesquière’s vision came to life in exaggerated silhouettes, high-tech fabrications, and futuristic details.
From bright 80s-inspired prints to metallic floral jacquards or boldly oversized tailoring, the Collection brings a new dimension to the historic hotel interiors.
Photographed by Collier Schorr, the Le Bristol Paris Hotel serves as the location for the shoot. Creative director Nicolas Ghesquière enlists a cast of models including Kiki Willems, Ambar Cristal Zarzuela, Blesnya Minher, Signe Veiteberg and Natalie Westling. Bold patterns, puffed sleeves and high-waist trousers take the spotlight.
Marie-Amelie Sauvé styles the shoot with hair by Duffy and Diane Kendal on makeup.
