Gisele Bündchen is the star of the newest Louis Vuitton ‘Horizons Never End’ campaign

International super model Gisele Bündchen has joined French Maison Louis Vuitton ‘Horizons Never End’ campaign. The iconic collection represents modern day travel and with the summer ahead, Bündchen fronts a fresh, seasonal allure to the art of travel.

Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has placed fashion in the context of culture bringing unique designs to the world, combining innovation with style and uncompromising quality. Today, the Maison remains faithful to the spirit of its founder, Louis Vuitton, who invented a genuine ‘Art of Travel’ through luggage, bags and accessories which were as creative as they were elegant and practical. 

The new campaign sees the Brazilian supermodel explore the coastal city of Miami, creating her own moments while basking in the sunlight. The campaign, captured by Glen Luchford in photo and video, sees the model integrate the world-renowned Horizon suitcase to her always on-the-go life.

The Marc Newson-designed signature travel campaign sees follows how Gisele Bündchen utilizes the suitcase in her travels. In a video, she speaks of her busy schedule, rarely checking-in her luggage. With the Louis Vuitton Horizons suitcase, she can travel with efficiency and in style.

Bündchen joins Lionel Messi and Jackson Wang as a solo star of the Horizons campaign. This particular Louis Vuitton campaign focuses on worldly travellers and celebrates LV’s signature monogram interpreted on the ultra-lightweight and well-engineered travel essential. The campaign features stills and a short film of Bündchen taking in the coast of Miami.

Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama Animations Take Over Giant Billboard in Tokyo

Boundless abstractions. Revealing animated motifs from inside a polka-dotted Louis Vuitton trunk, Yayoi Kusama (she’s about 93-years-old and more famous than ever!) invites you into her magical world that unravels from the Shinjuku building in Tokyo.

After early shots from onlookers were teased last week, we now get a closer look at the Louis Vuitton x Yavoi Kusama animations currently on view at Tokyo’s giant Cross Shinjuki Vision billboard. The massive French Maison’s 3D anamorphic display starts with a polka-dotted Louis Vuitton Damier trunk which opens up to reveal three of Kusama’s iconic pumpkins. The yellow one, famously installed on the art island of Naoshima, is worn by the artist as a helmet as she’s seen peering over the ledge. The animations then pivot to visuals of shimmering orbs from her ‘Narcissus Garden’ artwork and other polka-dotted LV objects.

Ten years after a first collaboration, Yayoi Kusama’s symbolic objects, hypnotic motifs, and imaginings of infinity take over the Maison’s own emblems, creating magical objects that transcend time and space. First revealed on the Cruise 2023 runway, this year’s collaboration brings not only the artist’s signature dots to the Monogram canvas, but also explores a wide range of recurring themes.

Louis Vuitton

The Louis Vuitton x Yavoi Kusama display is set to run at the billboard outside of Shinjuku station’s east exit until December 7 and the collaboration is set to launch in January 2023. More information can be found on Louis Vuitton’s spectial interactive site.
