Louis Vuitton has never failed to wow us with its larger-than-life advertising campaigns. Always creative and entertaining the fashion house knows how to pull out all the stops. There was the memorable Fall 2010 campaign, for which supermodels from three different decades were asked to represent the brand. Christy Turlington, Karen Elson and Natalia Vodianova made an appearance looking eternally stylish in some of the label’s floral dresses alongside an enviable selection of Louis Vuitton bags, shoes and other accessories. And there’s the ‘real’ people campaign (not my favourite), using stars in various settings, such as Sofia Coppola and her father Francis Ford Coppola in the Buenos Aires countryside. The latest show of clever design ideas is beautifully parcelled in their Christmas campaign, which is yet to be released. It includes a spread of eye-catching images – that have a 3-D effect – of elephants, zebras, monkeys, seals, mice and rabbits, ‘performing’ in a circus act. There is, of course, the ubiquitous trademark LV monogram throughout, adorning a collection of trunks, leather bags, jewellery pieces and accessories. With tangerine and red as its colour scheme, the shoot is playful, imaginative and injected with a good dose of Louis Vuitton magic.
