naomi and the amazing technicolor handbag

Noami_fw06ad_1 >> As pre-fall ads are starting to pop up, WWD has provided us with a sneak peek of Louis Vuitton's actual fall fall ads, photographed by Mert and Marcus.  The ads feature Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Daria Werbowy in the style of "the power eighties," complete with technicolor eyeshadow and of course lots of LV accessories (oversize ski hoods, pearl necklaces, leopard-print stoles, sunglasses, colorful mink handbags and Pharrell_fw06lvad_1 the like).  Representing the male quotient is Pharrell Williams, arms draped across LV's ubiquitous monogrammed trunks.  I'm usually not a fan of LV's ads (the ones pictured above included), but the one with Daria sounds promising:  she has a shoe placed askew on her head. 

Missy Rayder, Raquel Zimmerman, Kristina Kruze, and Du Juan were also cast as part of the campaign.

As a side note, a comment from Marc Jacobs which piqued my interest: "[Louis Vuitton]'s first and foremost a bag and luggage company."  So I wonder, why spend all the money doing runway?  It's not like the LV runway is quality anyway...
