    An interview with Xavier Dolan, ambassador of the new advertising campaign.

    Building on a début campaign that unveiled the Ombré line of leather accessories, Xavier Dolan returns as the embodiment of the Louis Vuitton man.

    Shot by Alasdair McLellan, the campaign presents the Spring-Summer 2016 collection designed by Kim Jones, the Men’s Artistic Director of the Maison. Like a veritable global travel log, this collection recounts a journey to several destinations through various cultural references.

    "Artisanal techniques from Southeast Asia, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos come to the fore on “souvenir jackets” with refined embroidery, shirts with exotic prints and sportswear-inspired jackets with wide tri-color bands. Bags, shoes and accessories crafted in the iconic Epi and Taïga leathers offer the urban voyager new sobriety and sophistication."
