Francophilia: Sam Sits - Patiently! - For Louis Vuitton!

Earlier this week I went along to a private viewing of Louis Vuitton's latest film project, Double Exposure (a very intriguing name, don't you think?). A series of portraits - styled by Bay Garnett and shot by photographer Tom Craig with the 19th century 'wet plate' photographic process, is accompanied by a very 21st century digital film where the subject - the first being the always-interesting Sam Taylor-Wood - shares some of their dearest, most treasured possessions and the stories behind them.

I wrote in more detail about the project for Grazia Daily so take a look here and scroll down this page for the film itself. A further three subjects will be revealed soon and I can't wait to see who will be next. Frankly, anyone that's already starred in a Louis Vuitton Core Values ad (Francis Ford and Sofia Coppola, Buzz Aldrin, Mikhail Baryshnikov) will do just fine!
