Fab Ad: Louis Vuitton Core Values Campaign Featuring Francis and Sofia Coppola

The newest addition to Louis Vuitton's core values campaign features prestigious filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola and his daughter Sofia sitting in the countryside of Buenos Aires. Shot by Annie Leibovitz, the ad, which is the fifth in its series of exceptional people, depicts Francis sitting with script in hand, taking on an engaging conversation with his beautiful daughter. Amongst all the picturesque scenery, a Louis Vuitton bag is nonchalantly thrown into the mix.

All of this natural scenery is nice but has me wondering: What does it all mean? Pietro Beccari, Louis Vuitton Senior VP of Communication and Marketing, explains it best: "This beautiful visual is a significant new addition to the core values campaign. Not only does it capture the unique quality of a father-daughter relationship, in which both are enriched by a shared experience, but it also evokes the heritage of Louis Vuitton with its suggestion of know-how being passed from one generation to the next." As well, the company is making a donation to The Climate Project on behalf of the famous father and daughter duo. Does this ad pull at your heartstrings?

I am the last one to buy an LV bag, but I do like this ad.

I love this ad (and it's models). It looks so natural and make me feel as though it's a scene from a book. I don't think it has an inappropriate look to it at all. The way she is positioned adds to the relaxed feel of the photo. And her "engrossed look" appears as if she is contemplating whatever her father is talking to her about.

I like it! I has a soft, romantic feel and an old fashioned touch. Annie Leibovitz is a genius!

While the bag pictured is quite beautiful, I am uncomfortable with the postures in this advertisement. I realize that Sofia Coppola's sexuality is supposed to be present in the image, but something about her bare legs and engrossed look seem inappropriate to me in a father-daughter photograph.

I think it's kind of weird how she's lying at his feet. Why couldn't she be sitting upright, or in a chair? Maybe not as "graceful," but the whole "daughters lying at their fathers' feet" is a little awkward to me. I don't think he's not a great font of inspiration and knowledge, but it seems like something a feminist would find awkward.

These ads are provocative and very tastefully done like the products they are trying to sell. Maybe Ms. Lebovitz should have used the same common sense when she photographed Milly Cyrus. This pictures suggestes to me, that Sofia is totally engrossed by her fathers suggestions and ideas. And the LV bags is part of it.

What better way to evoke "core values" than to feature a father and daughter? By the way, what is the "strictly eye candy to me!" option supposed to mean?

I like it. Even thought it was shot in Argentina, the photo reminds me of the movie Out of Africa.
