As part of the New Classic line of iconic leather goods, Louis Vuitton Artistic Director of Women’s Collections Nicolas Ghesquière’s Dauphine bag brings back to life a historic Louis Vuitton shape with the modern woman in mind.
Louis Vuitton showcases the Dauphine bag in a new campaign photographed by Steven Meisel. Starring models Liya Kebede and Rebecca Leigh Longendyke, the studio portraits are captured against a grey backdrop. Stylist Marie-Amelie Sauvé pairs the bag with elegant apparel in neutral tones. A tailored jacket, button-up shirt, and striped shorts go well with the accessory. Guido Palau works on hair for the shoot with flawless makeup by Pat McGrath.
Introduced as part of the Cruise 2019 collection by Nicolas Ghesquière, the Dauphine became one of Louis Vuitton’s New Classic bags. Effortlessly chic and endlessly versatile, it demonstrates Maison’s ability to adapt its heritage to modern lifestyles. Since its debut in a combination of Monogram and Monogram Reverse canvas, the Dauphine continually inspires new interpretations in varying materials, colors, sizes, and forms, always retaining its elegant spirit. The bag’s sleek design includes a chic combination of Monogram and Monogram Reverse canvas, a chain strap, gold hardware, and a monogram/reverse monogram print.
