Through his 16-year tenure at Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs has always had his women. Some designers keep their muses private, but Jacobs has always placed front and center the women who he finds inspirational, from American filmmaker Sofia Coppola, to Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen, to French acting legend Catherine Deneuve and beyond. For the Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 ad campaign, his final for the brand, Jacobs has put those women front and center
In total, the ads will star Catherine Deneuve, Sofia Coppola, Gisele Bundchen, Fan Bingbing, Caroline de Maigret and Edie Campbell, all of whom have been friends of the brand during Jacobs’ tenure there. The Steven Meisel-lensed ads are all portraits of the women with Spring 2014 handbags on a table in front of them, and they retain the blue-black glamor of the Vuitton runway show. Ladies and handbags – it’s a fitting swan song to Marc Jacobs’ time at the helm of the world’s biggest luxury brand. Check out the images below, straight from Louis Vuitton.
