The Most Beautiful Louis Vuitton Ad I Have Ever Seen

After my quick jaunt to Detroit to get my heart broken and to New York City to lift my spirit and visit friends, I flew back home to the Philippines for a mere 5 hours only to unpack and repack before rushing to the airport to catch my flight.

I'm now in Singapore.

On my way here, I picked up a copy of Financial Times and I saw the most beautiful Louis Vuitton advert I have ever seen in the longest time.

Louis Vuitton Ad Campaign

It's stunning. I've stared at this captivating ad for quite some time, wondering who this woman is. It looks like one of those very old portraits (Vermeer, anyone?) from the past that you can only see at museums… but at the same time, it also looks so modern and timeless. I love the emphasis on craftmanship versus the usual high-voltage, high-gloss celeb/model ads…

Refreshingly discreet for the MEGAbrand luxury powerhouse that monogram built, no?

Wonderful.

    That ad truly IS beautiful! Personally I’m kind of tired of seeing the LV logo splashed everywhere, so the understated-ness of this ad brings back some of the elegance that has been lost in that brand.
    And urgh! How I wish I was back in Singapore right now.. Jealous.

  2. I think it’s a nice image–very reminiscent of a painting by any of the dutch masters.
    Still, I find the implied idea that louis vuitton wallets are prepared by beautiful women wearing cashmere and a lot of make-up a little fatuous. And then there’s the question of the wallet itself: what is she actually doing to it? It’s clearly a finished wallet that she’s holding some tool to, dunno why it needs that. If I were louis vuitton, I’d either go for beauty shots of the wallet and its five folds or something that more closely approximated the way it’s actually made. dunno.

  3. fitst visit to yout blog and you are scoring already!
    I hadnt seen this ad and had only recently been deploring the state of LV ads.

    Congrats on the Vogue addition!

  4. it looks straight out of the 90’s.. when LV had no identity and relied merely upon it’s history of great craftsmanship. I saw it in US Vanity Fair last month and gasped- it looks completely out of place in todays marketplace. While I agree it’s a beautiful image reminiscent of painted portraiture, it does not compel me to buy. I think whomever came up with this ad did a disservice to the brand.
