Louis Vuitton’s resort 2017 collection was staged in Rio de Janeiro at Brazil’s Contemporary Art Museum, designed by architect Oscar Niemar. Artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière’s designs were influenced by not only the tropical scenery of Brazil, but also by Niemar’s work. The show opened with a selection of slashed dresses featuring a colorful mix-match of eye-catching prints. For outerwear, Ghesquière created parkas and capes from parachute fabrics and sleek leather jackets with sculpted shoulders. Mini dresses were embellished with ruffles for a feminine touch.
“Being able to show a fashion collection in such an architecturally powerful space is a sensorial experience. In Rio de Janeiro, what I saw most of all was movement and an explosive energy that lives somewhere between modernism and tropicality. I was fascinated by the constant duality between nature and urbanism and the pictorial explosion it creates,” Ghesquière reveals in the show notes.

Louis Vuitton has tapped Selena Gomez as its newest campaign star. Selena is seen posing alongside a model gang for the Louis Vuitton Series 5 fall 2016 campaign, perfectly embodying the brand’s modern spirit.
The 23-year-old popstar is the latest face for the label under Nicolas Ghesquière, ever since her first pose with the designer on a cover ofVogue Brasil a month ago. Gomez posted a picture of the cover on her Instagram as well, foreshadowing, “Exciting things coming with this brilliant man.” This caused for followers to begin guessing that this photo boded a future campaign between Gomez and Louis Vuitton. And now we’re happy to say they were correct!
The photos that have been released to Instagram and Twitter so far are part of the LV Series 5 campaign. The decision to cast Gomez as the leading star is totally grounded in her relationship with the brand, even before the close-quartered Vogue cover was shot.
Gomez has always had an apparent love for the luxury label, as she has recently been spotted at various formal and red carpet events (as well as each and every stop of her “Revival” tour to date) sporting looks from the brand. Even more notably, and recently, Gomez wore a total Vuitton ensemble.
Even despite wearing the brand, the pop singer has been present in the front row at the past four runway shows. So if there was any doubt in your mind as to why she would have been chosen for Louis Vuitton’s fall 2016 campaign, it should be gone now!
So far, five images from the campaign have been released to social media by both Gomez and Ghesquière. From what we can see, the clothes and overall shoot is sophisticated, with youthful modernity coming into the fun patterns and bright colors, among other things.
The first image released in relation to the campaign, for instance, is overpowered by a very large fur trapper hat. Aside from that is a crop top and oversized, fur-trimmed leather jacket, so there are a lot of powerful elements in this photo, and they are complemented by Gomez’s imposing, statuesque demeanor.
Thanks to this campaign, we’re really seeing the mature, high-fashion side that Gomez is turning to. As the new face of a luxury label, and with her journey wearing Vuitton at high fashion events, we have seen her emerge from her label as a Disney star.
Even aside from Vuitton, just her walk with luxury fashion on her tour in general has shown her new, high-fashion makeover self wearing names like Monse and Rodarte while out on the road.
Gomez is the most striking name and face of this campaign, which was shot by photographer Bruce Weber, but it also features models Erika Linder, Jean Campbell, Natalie Westling, and Rianne Van Rompaey.
With these initial images setting a precedent to the rest of the campaign, we can only imagine that the rest of the photos will have this intense level of sophistication from the models and the structure of the garments, with some great layers of fun and youthfulness popping out here and there.

The newest Bond girl in the movie “Spectre”, no other than French actress Lea Seydoux is the chosen face of Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Fall 2016 Spirit of Travel Campaign. For this colorful ad campaign, the French luxury fashion house featured its latest handbags such as the Capucines and Steamer tote bags.
The Capucines bag is a dream come true for women who loves big and bold colors. The splash of fuchsia color paired with the luxurious crocodile skin is a fashion statement that makes all the difference, especially if you pair it over monochromatic ensembles such as black or white. Looking closely, one can notice that the interlocking LV logo in front finishes the extravagant look to it.
The Steamer bag on the other hand is quite new, released in the bag industry not too long ago. We have previously featured this bag: Louis Vuitton City Steamer Tote Bag. A beautiful and well-structured tote, the Steamer bag from Louis Vuitton is a divine perfection. For the Pre-Fall 2016 Ad Campaign, the Steamer got a facelift that it deserves which is appropriate for the coming fall with the combination of salmon pink, black and somewhat dark violet colors. It has a nametag, a hot-stamped LV circle and the engraved golden padlock for an added luxurious feel.
