Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2011-2012 women’s campaign, photographed by Steven Meisel, channels 1940s bourgeoisie. Stunning young models relax in the back seat of vintage cars lined in sleek black leather. Stylist Karl Templer accessorized the women with leather gloves, bellhop hats, head bands and crocodile purses.
In addition they wore animal skin jackets with oversized covered black patent leather buttons. The mix of different furs and animal skins in rich reds, purples, grays and greens turn the vintage look into a modern French take on the young haute models. Like true little rich girls, they tote tiny black and white puppies to match the personality of the line. Headbands made of crystallized masks echo the feel of the line, as a masquerade ball should be in the near future.
