Young Hollywood Artists Endorse Louis Vuitton Handbags and Other Bag Campaigns

Louis Vuitton are notorious when it comes to choosing who’s going to represent their new line of Louis Vuitton Handbags. Some designers depend solely on the potential ambassador’s integrity, which is essential when becoming the face of the brand. Some hire famous actresses who have enough talent, followers and command to be able to front a campaign that will mirror the brand’s attributes.

At the moment, fashion houses choose to count on the A-list powers of young starlets to represent their brands credibly. Some of the most sought-after brands such as Chanel, Dior, and Louis Vuitton all choose younger ambassadors to become the face of their products. This could also be a way for these renowned fashion houses to attract a younger market and make their brands appeal to a fresh demographic.

Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton Handbags

Michelle Williams is currently the face of Louis Vuitton, the first of which was unveiled in 2013. The brand chose Williams to be the face of the brand’s handbag line because of her independent spirit and ability to take challenging and daring roles. Williams also wore a Louis Vuitton dress at the 2012 Academy Awards where she was nominated for her staggering performance as Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn.

Williams’ second campaign for Louis Vuitton handbags was released October last year. The ads were photographed by Peter Lindbergh and styled by CR Fashion Book editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld.

Jennifer Lawrence for Christian Dior Handbags

Fresh off her Oscar nomination in 2011 for the movie Winter’s Bone, Jennifer Lawrence was chosen by Dior creative director Raf Simmons to front the label’s Miss Dior handbags. Raf Simmons confessed that he was charmed by Jennifer Lawrence’s youth, screen presence, and ability to perform well-rounded characters easily. Lawrence was hired by the brand after actress Mila Kunis fronted the Miss Dior line for two consecutive campaigns.

Lawrence’s 5th Dior handbag campaign called “Be Dior” was released recently. Just like with her previous campaigns, the ads featured a minimalistic and natural-looking Lawrence while clutching the handbags. The campaign, which was photographed by Paolo Roversi, will be launched in several UK magazines soon.

Kristen Stewart for Chanel Handbags

Twilight megastar and indie film sensation Kristen Stewart earned herself another Chanel campaign after fronting the French fashion house’s Metier d’art Paris Dallas collection last year.

Stewart met Chanel creative director Karl Lagarfeld in a photo shoot for a magazine in 2012 and soon after, Lagarfeld invited Stewart to attend his show in Paris. A few more fashion shows after that and the brand hired Stewart to front their Paris Dallas campaign. Stewart was announced as the face of Chanel handbags at their last couture collection, succeeding the likes of Blake Lively and Vanessa Paradis.

Stewart will front the brand’s emblematic 11.12 handbag by Karl Lagarfeld together with two other Chanel muses Alice Dellal (for Boy Chanel) and Vanessa Paradis (for the launch of the new Girl Chanel bag). The campaign will be photographed by Lagarfeld himself and will be released this spring.

Kim Jones: Fashion’s Wonder Boy

The Men’s 2015 Fall Collection of Louis Vuitton was nothing short of deliciously edgy. Integrating the aesthetics of renowned fashion icon, Christopher Nemeth, the collection brought about a fresher and sharper edge to the brand. While keeping the elegance that Replica Louis Vuitton is known for in its designs, the set from the 2015 collection upped the ante further by turning it “stylishly street” and it’s all thanks to the label’s Men’s Style Director, Kim Jones.


Young and creatively vibrant, Jones was a graduate of London’s Central Saint Martins College of Art where he holds an MA in Menswear where, in his graduating year, he was acclaimed for his graduation show presented in 2003 at London Fashion Week. For a time in his illustrious career Jones has created his own label until he was called in by high profile London brand, Alfred Dunhill, to be its Creative Director as well as working for Alexander McQueen. Following years of creative growth, it was in 2011 when Louis Vuitton appointed him as the brand’s Men’s Style Director.


Over the years with the brand, Kim has designed Louis Vuitton bags and a collection of menswear where he lends his unique style of adding the element of travel, underscoring the brand’s soul, to each piece. Having spent his childhood in Africa, he was exposed to the vast savannahs of the continent thus influencing his creative aesthetic. Spending his formative years traveling with his parents from Africa to the Amazon, it was when Jones came to London that he was finally able to exercise his creativity.


He has created and designed for his own label that debuted at Paris Fashion Week in 2004 and carried on for eight seasons but he did not stop there.


Jones, with his incredible talent, worked his way even further into the fashion industry and landed jobs with brands like Hugo Boss, Uniqlo, Topman, and Umbro but it was with Alfred Dunhill that he seemed to have found his turning point and with Louis Vuitton where he cemented his identity among the fashion greats.


The image of the Louis Vuitton bags for men will never be quite the same. Owing to his experiences in travel, the element of utilitarianism is always present in every creation, something that is quite evident in his 2011 Men’s Collection where the idea of “transforming pieces” was introduced into his designs; an idea that sprung from Jones identifying the need to make things much easier and comfortable for travelers.


“I think I’m a logical and practical thinker at the end of the day,” he admits to a 2011 interview with Suzy Menkes when asked about his designs.


Whatever his reasons, whether practical or logical, creative or edgy, Kim Jones has a certain kind of magic that he wields to transform Louis Vuitton bags, shoes, and clothes into what men, especially those who travel, crave for: practicality with a minimum of fuss.


It is no surprise that his recent Menswear line for Fall 2015 still answers to that need and still gives more room for creativity and style.
