While earlier this week we got a look at tiny people playing in the Louis Vuitton store, today’s news concerns images starring a different kind of tiny person. Models! And lots of them.
Steven Meisel shot a bevy of new faces for the brand’s fall 2012 campaign, all clad in various shades of mustard and aubergine and half-hidden beneath mammoth crumpled hats. Our first peek at the ads shows a whole car of models milling about the LV Express – stowing handbags, carrying handbags, and clasping handbags on their laps. Let’s be honest here: the real stars of the campaign are the handbags. You may see leopard prints, but you can bet that Vuitton execs are seeing a whole lot of dollar signs.
And while we’re not certain if this is the very same train that chugged down the runway at the fall show, one thing’s for sure: these girls are riding first class all the way.
