Louis Vuitton’s Series 2 campaign is the follow-up to last year’s award-winning collaboration with iconic fashion photographers – this second installment featuring images by Annie Liebovitz, Jeurgen Teller, and Bruce Webber.
LV builds a WeChat minisite allowing netizens to explore its Series 2 exhibition
Louis Vuitton combined the print campaign with a global exhibition, making stops in Los Angeles, Beijing, Seoul, and Rome, to capture creative director Nicolas Ghesquière inspirations for the 2015 Spring/Summer Women’s ready-to-wear collection.
Like most global luxury brands in China, Louis Vuitton has placed an increased emphasis on mainland events that communicate brand stories using a powerful blend of China and global celebrities to create awareness and boost credibility on social media. Dubbed “Louis Vuitton Series 2: Past, Present and Future,” the immersive two-week exhibition in Beijing allowed the brand to reinforce their heritage using iconic products and educate visitors on their artisanal craftsmanship. Using WeChat and Weibo, the brand was able to extend event reach while promoting exploration of the latest women’s collection.
