Within the last week Nicolas Ghesquière has posted to Instagram the first glimpses of LV Series Five, the latest advertising campaign for Louis Vuitton photographed by Bruce Weber and features amongst others Erika Linder. Anticipation had begun building around this series days before its official release and reception thus far of Weber’s portraits have been positive. Erika has plenty of history with the brand and its artistic director of women’s collections. In March Erika was Louis Vuitton exclusive as she has been in previous season. She most recently cropped up at the Niteròi Contemporary Art Museum in Rio de Janeiro in late May for the brand’s cruise show. All told, it is a fine outing and another great occasion to see an accomplished model and a celebrated designer work together so well.
