Fall campaigns 2011: Louis Vuitton

louis vuitton, lv, fall winter campaign, mongolian lamb fur,I just can’t stop looking at these sublime pictures. The combination of textures are absolutely stunning: purple shearling, jade patent leather, lacquered python.. exactly what the Louis Vuitton girl would wear to travel.

As Marc Jacobs explained, the fetish influence of this collection came from a conversation with LVMH’s Bernard Arnault about women’s “inexplicable obsession with bags. And that got us started thinking about passions, and any of the disciplines that require effort and work and commitment.”

I always knew I was a Vuitton girl!

Venus in Furs

I know this shoot shows a bit more nudity than I’d normally like to post on this blog (we are about fur, not skin!) but it was too beautiful not to publish. The shoot, for Vogue Italia‘s November issue, features models Iselin Steiro and Freya Beha Erichsen shot by Steven Meisel. Personally, I tend to wear clothes between my furs and my skin, but to be honest, fur against the skin would probably feel a whole nicer.
