Why Nicolas Ghesquière Used Three Photographers for Louis Vuitton’s Fall Campaign

Nicolas Ghesquière has been at Louis Vuitton for about a year, and has garnered plenty of praise for his work so far. For Fall 2014, the designer tapped three photographers to shoot his debut campaign for the label: Juergen Teller, Annie Leibovitz and Bruce Weber. Three photographers with three different styles and points of view. Yet somehow, the designer was able to cobble together a cohesive campaign. But as he tells WWD, he tapped the trio of shutterbugs to lens the advertisements not because he couldn’t decide who he wanted to use, but because he wanted to show that the Louis Vuitton brand can reflect the diversity and multi-faceted nature of women.

“Each [photographer] has a different expression of it,” Ghesuière told WWD.  “[With Leibovitz], it’s more dramatic. Juergen has this reality, this impact that is quite raw and Bruce is much more poetic and has this dimension. It’s the combination that is interesting because these are emotions that every woman has.”

For now, Ghesquière is focusing on keeping the legacy of Vuitton going, rather than creating big-ticket items that sell like hotcakes and fizzle out after a few seasons. “My thought was that when we look at things that are considered ‘Grande Classiques,’ as we say in French — iconic classics that almost everyone wants — we sometimes forget that they were new one day,” he said. “They were totally innovative and might sometimes be shocking to some people, but with time, they become classics. Every item doesn’t become that but the challenge for the designer is to look for those things that are so consistent that they can stand [the test of] time even if they are surprising and new at the beginning. That was the concept.”

Vogue Brazil Taps Amanda Wellsh and Aline Weber for Rio Themed Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Brazil gives us two covers to choose from this month and tapped Amanda Wellsh and Aline Weber to front both. On the first cover for the Rio-themed issue, the Brazilian models look ready for a night on the town wearing stunning black evening dresses with slicked back hair. The second cover sees the duo more relaxed sitting on a sandy beach with sea-soaked tresses while gazing down the lens of Giampaolo Sgura.

Members of theFashionSpot forums continue to express their excitement for both covers. “I like both covers!! So chill, so relax[ed]. I’m not even a fan of either one of the models!” comments alonsoJonathan, setting a positive attitude for the thread.

“Both covers are really good and always happy to see Aline!” raves justaguy.

TheoG agrees and expresses his excitement for the covers: “Surprised Sgura shot this! Overall I love this, especially Aline.”

Also to share the same sentiments is MON who posts, “I love how in the first cover, they look so young and innocent, then the second cover is the exact opposite — mature women that are down to business! I love this!”

“I like the story of the two covers side by side, from the beach to a night club,” enthuses kokobombon.

Gazebo even goes as far as to the say, “Best Vogue cover in a few years. It’s both real and aspirational,” and goes on to write, “I love Amanda a lot, next month give her a solo cover please.”

“The second cover is so sleek and sophisticated. Not really what you’d expect from Vogue Brazil. It would have been beautiful on its own. I really hope the multiple covers trend does not continue into next year though…” notes orchidee.
