Depending on the brand, the relevancy of an ad campaign to those of us who love handbags can vary quite a bit. Some brands showcase their accessories while others hardly include them at all, but thankfully, Louis Vuitton is part of that first group. Images of Vuitton’s Spring 2011 campaign hit the Internet yesterday, and we have all seven Steven Meisel-shot images for your enjoyment.

  • Shana

    I’m digging the visual more than the actual bags! (ipad)

  • Tracey G

    i have to agree, not loving the bags (ipad)

  • Sbelle

    Have to agree — not loving the bags (ipad)

  • NikolineK

    Pretty cool, I like it (ipad)

  • Alicia

    Really weird, and it seems a bit different than their normal style, no? (ipad)

  • Alicia

    I should clarify – in terms of the shape and some of the color combinations – it looks a bit more like some other designer brands, like coach (ipad)

  • Deb

    Love the colors of the pictures…but not the bags so much! (ipad)

  • Marianna

    I find the images somewhat creepy and the bags are (imho) awful. Just too much color and pattern going on for my taste. (ipad)

  • Taya

    im so disappointed by the ad,i excpected something classier, its a color festival!! and even the ones with neutral colors have a lot of gold writing on them, i have to admit they look kind of cheap..
    a louis vuitton fan but not this collection :(

  • Amy

    The models look kind of like manneuqins? its a bit creepy. (ipad)

  • Colleen

    The ads aren’t the norm I usually see from Louis Vuitton, but they’re interesting. I’d like to see more angles of the bags, but I think I’ll probably feel the same as I did about last years S/S. Not thrilled. (IPad)

  • Angie

    Oh well … Not my favourite season collection (iPad)

  • Staci

    The ads are beautiful – I love the bold colors! (ipad)

  • edoardo

    I lvo ethis campaign they look as a development of the “classi LV style adv” these are chic, cool and os fresh!!!

  • windy

    not exactly my type of colors. (ipad)

  • Sheena

    The Louis Vuitton brand has become cheap to me. I love the photographs, but wouldn’t buy the bags:( (iPad)

  • Austinmamadrama

    NOT a fan of LV this year. :-(

  • 19yearslater

    LV ad campaigns are always pretty good but I don’t like this one compared to many of the others. In some of the shots the models’ expressions make them look like zombies ready to nom on human flesh.(ipad)

  • pinkbonbon

    Don’t like them. I’m not a fan of LV in general. The bags are such poor quality for the price.

  • XXAL

    the bags are cute eye candies, love that LV is going towards Chinese designs!

    @pinkbonbon: I’m not a fan of LV either (b/c its too overrated for its brand name) but i must say, LV is known to have good quality no? i’ve used two (i was young & naive) they are still in almost perfect condition (one is my mom’s from 98)!

  • XXAL

    also, im having mixed feelings about these hair & makeup.. it seems way too intense but at the same time, it goes with the overall look of the photographs.. hmm…

  • Jen

    I like it, except for the fact that all of the models look like men in drag! (ipad)

  • FashionIsMyHobby

    Eyecatching ads–not sure if I like the bags. (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    I’m not digging it (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    Probably because of the over airbrushing. (ipad)

  • Ellen

    i love the ads but I agree that the bags are not great. I do love the purple and pink bag with the thin shoulder strap though. (ipad)

  • Ken Vien

    Have to agree — not loving the bags (ipad)

  • Joy

    The bags only look so-so. The photography is what draws the eye, not the bags.

  • Joy

    (iPad)

  • kemilia

    Eeesh, it’s all kinda unattractive–models & bags. (ipad)

  • Sara

    I don’t like the handbags and all LV campaigns look too much the same for my taste (same happens with Gucci)..

    Its good that the consumer immediately recognizes the brand but ITS SPRING! the photos look too clustered (not at all fresh) and because they’re inside a room it could perfectly be for the autumn winter season.

    I really like Balenciaga’s campaigns, always different. What do you think? (ipad)

  • Bir

    How have the mighty fallen , I have to agree with others no fresh looks no true elegance behind the actual bags and to tell the truth it’s a bit fussy trashy even. Not the best Louis collection.

  • Melinda

    Yuck! (ipad)

  • CMM

    The bags are not doing it for me, BUT I love the overall look of the pictures. (ipad)

  • lovelavie

    these modeling photos are amazing, but the bag … I will pass.. (ipad)

  • Jen

    LOVE these ads! (ipad)

  • Pam

    I usually love their ads, but not these.(ipad)

  • Vitta

    Seems like LV is gearing toward the Chinese market big time. Note the colors, patterns, shapes (fans, screens, garments, etc.) of the set. If they’re able to “take” China, then they will “kill” the counterfeit problem.

  • Sue E

    I don’t like the bags for some reason. I’ll stick to the classics (ipad)

  • Lolita Abraham

  • Tiffany

    I barely notice the bags, the ads are so amazing in themself! (ipad)

  • greenpixie

    I like the overall look of these ads – amazing colors. (ipad)

  • quimerula

    Not my cup of tea (ipad).

  • GorgeouslyAwesome

    there was a few i really liked, but i dont do clutches or small bags really. im a mother with 2 small kids whose purse sometimes doubles as a diaper bag and toy box. i know, the horror! so i prefer jumbo totes… the bigger, the better right? (ipad)

  • Miriam

    Striking photos but no to the bags (ipad)

  • honeycem

    Loving the look!

  • Joyce

    Like the photos, but the bags not so much (ipad)

  • Kelly

    Stunning pictures, very vibrant, the purses are fun looking (iPad)

  • MPA

    it always amazes me how models can move/bend their bodies…pretty cool pics, and the bags are not bad, just not my style. This actually good, then I won’t be tempted to hunt one of these lovely bags down. (ipad)

  • Honey

    I like the bold colors but would not personally carry the bags. The ad is eye-catching and very much sophisticated as the brand should be, in my opinion. (iPad)

  • Bettye

    I don’t like the handbags. (ipad)

  • Lianne

    Someone feed those girls some cheeseburgers. Seriously, I couldn’t evaluate the bags because I was too distracted by how skeletal the girls were.

  • Tonya

    I agree with Lianne these ladies look hungry! lol I’m not impressed because these models are doing the handbags a diservice! (ipad)

  • lilobubbletea

    Color me crazy but the two bright colored handbags in the first photo on the right reminds me of some of the bags that Coach came out with a few good seasons back. (ipad)

    • Scorpio

      wow, are you comparing LV to coach?? SMH

  • Kim

    Love the orgy of colour! (ipad)

  • mrsjones

    their dresses reminds me of the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration..(ipad)

  • Kat

    Erm… No, just no. Their campaign with Christy Turlington, Natalia Vodianova and Karen Elson was beautiful and elegant, and so much better than this.

    • papertiger

      ITA

  • swati

    not working …. the last campaign, with the retro look was far better … too much of colors … the handbags seem to get lost amidst all the color (ipad)

  • Donna C.

    I do not like it at all. The fall one was so much better. The hairstyles, the makeup, the bags. There is not one thing I like about the pictures (ipad)

  • Raventress

    I love the pink purple bag in the ad!!! Hope it will not be too expensive.. (ipad)

  • cl

    i actually really like this collection. I do admit they seem more for a younger demographic which may be why i like it so much, but for any wardrobe full of neutrals, this may work! (ipad)

  • Jenn

    Sohisticated (ipad)

  • Jenn

    Love it (ipad)

  • LDJ

    Im just not feeling it. The bags, model and the fashion!!! (ipad)

  • Jenn

    I especially like the pink purple one (ipad)

  • Jenn

    I feel like this is very lady gaga-ish (ipad)

  • Elizabeth

    Nothing crazy original, but i love the bright colours. But I hate the bags (ipad)

  • Chells

    There’s a lot going on in these ads. I like the colors, but don’t care for the bags or the gaga vibe. (ipad)

  • Mousse

    I do not like LV bags. Will never, ever wear one even if it were given to me. (ipad)

  • spanish moss

    i don’t like this art work. too busy. no place for the eye to rest. a disservice to the products they’re trying to sell. (ipad)

  • JC

    they kinda remind me of fendi’s spring bags.. (ipad)

  • PurseAdict

    The pictures and the colors are amazing but I am not sure about the bags :( (ipad)

  • Jelita78

    oh lord..
    we can’t even handle one lady ga-ga..
    now we have another three??
    is this ga-ga look the new in-thing?
    if this defines fashion, then by all means, i don’t want to be in fashion anymore!
    absolutely ugly!
    the models look like drag queens! (ipad)

  • nick

    What is wrong with LV? They are coming out with way too many bags. They tack on a ‘limited edition’ and create a wait list. It is just way too commercial now. People have to constantly follow this kind of handbag fashion trend. Plus, the bags are just ugly! …and this is coming from someone that likes LV. (ipad)

  • Justine

    China is definitely included in their inspiration! I can clearly see that! (ipad)

  • Tracey G

    pass for me w/ these LV bags (ipad)

  • papertiger

    The 1970s YSL Opium aesthetic is so overused

  • Annalisa

    I’ll be flogged for agreeing with the assessment of another poster, but this LV looks like past season Coach! Am I saying Coach is as good as LV? Clearly not…but at the same time, LV is only going to be as good as the designs it comes out with. If they make their bags look like old Coach designs, then it’s not my fault for pointing it out! I also agree that it took me three looks at the pic for me to even notice the bag (and I ALWAYS notice the bag LOL), because these women are just so freakishly skeletal. Even for models. It’s gross. (ipad)

  • Melissa

    Not a fan of this season, but I really like the campaign. Thank you for not giving us more of the same. (ipad)

  • Cathy Fitz

    The ad campaign – yuck. Bizarro. But the bags – I love them (once I could find them in those maze of colors and patterns. (ipad)

  • SS

    The aesthetic of the campaign as a whole is enjoyable, but there’s something about the bags themselves that seems a bit off. Not a fan. (ipad)

  • Isabelle

    A great option is the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini!!
    It’s got a similar satchel-like shape with the rocker attitude and is more affordable but still good quality.

    You can find it on eBay:
