THREE’S COMPANY: Word has it Nicolas Ghesquière’s first fashion campaign for Louis Vuitton will break the mold as he has tapped not one, but three leading photographers. It is understood the advertising will somehow blend images shot by Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz and Juergen Teller.
The faces of the campaign are familiar to Ghesquière’s universe and include the actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, as first reported in WWD Collections magazine on April 14, and models Liya Kebede and Freja Beha Erichsen, both of whom walked in Ghesquière’s debut Vuitton show for fall 2014.
