As our forums reported and discussed a few months back, Nicolas Ghesquière’s first ads for Louis Vuitton were to be captured by three different photographers. For his debut collection for the French fashion house, Ghesquière enlisted the expertise of Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz and Juergen Teller to lens the Fall 2014 campaign. The designer also tapped four "contemporary heroines," Freja Beha Erichsen, Jean Campbell, Liya Kebede and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Earlier today, WWD gave readers an exclusive first look at the campaign and members of our forums are weighing in on the first set of images. "Yes! Finally! I've been so waiting for this and the result doesn't disappoint, just amazing! Loving all the pictures posted so far and they actually look like part of one campaign which was a big concern for me since they were using three different photographers…can't wait for more! So exciting!" enthused Lee MG Tisci.
"That shot of Freja by Juergen is breathtaking," wrote LagerfeldBoy.
Another impressed member was burbuja8910: "Nice campaign, I can't believe that Nicolas used 3 different photographers."
"I could cry this is AMAZING!! Ugh! My eyes have been starving for this for ages! # photographers, all gorgeous images…ugh this made my morning," exclaims maxlinden.
Not everyone was in the same frame of mind, though. Forum member Thefrenchy wrote, "That's probably going to be an unpopular opinion but, I'm not sure how I feel about this…I feel like it's a bit lacking so far, and would make a super cool editorial (Freja's shot is fantastic) but not an actual campaign — only Charlotte's shot is selling me something here…Looking forward to seeing more."
