When I found out Lea Seydoux was heading up the new pre-fall Louis Vuitton campaign, I almost squealed with delight. I love Seydoux so much as an actress, particularly in Blue Is The Warmest Colour and she was the only good thing about the shambles that was Spectre. She somehow manages to be equally as captivating standing still as a model for the amazing Patrick Demarchelier. As a fan of Vuitton’s polished, punchy style I was eager to see what style of shoot the brand had opted for to promote the already strong collection where the handbags really stole the show.
The Cuadra San Cristóbal ranch serves as the perfect backdrop to Seydoux’s quirky persona that she brings to the shoot. The flat full colour background is mirrored in the candy pinks that appear here and there throughout the mostly black collection. The Mexican ranch brings out the slight “prairie” influence to some of the pieces while accentuating the contrasting city chic elements of this collection. You can catch this shoot in print in this month’s Vanity Fair and the collection is available to buy on the Louis Vuitton website where it is styled in a completely different way, prepare yourself for some prairie goth realness!
