Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquière has planned his first campaign for the brand to feature the work of three photographers, Women’s Wear Daily reported earlier this week.
Unconfirmed but increasingly likely, the Creative Director is said to be working with Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz and Juergen Teller to mark the occasion, in a campaign that would see their work ‘moulded’ together.
Ghesquière – who will debut his second line for the house in Monaco tomorrow, with the label’s first ever fashion show format pre-collection display – has also tipped Charlotte Gainsbourg, Liya Kebede and Freja Beha Erichsen to model in the campaign.
On Wednesday meanwhile, Karl Lagerfeld took Chanel (models, journalists and devotees included) to Dubai, for the house’s cruise 15 catwalk show.
Following similar spectaculars in Texas, Singapore and Edinburgh, the event – held in high regard by the industry for its attention to detail, expense and sheer luxury – saw the likes of Charlotte Free, Sam Rollinson and Joan Smalls model 84 looks of eastern inspired dress.
Finally, Moschino this week joined the schedule for next month’s London Collections: Men, in what will be the house’s very first mainline presentation outside of Italy.
Taking place on the 16th June – the second of what will be a three-day event – the collection marks Creative Director Jeremy Scott’s menswear debut; several pre-collection womenswear looks are also expected to show.
