    • NEW SHADES OF LOCKIT WITH MICHELLE WILLIAMS - Louis Vuitton Fashion NEWS
    For the third time, Michelle Williams teams up with photographer Peter Lindbergh to present the new shades of the Lockit handbag in Louis Vuitton’s latest advertising campaign.

    Between two performances on Broadway with the sparkling revival of the Tony Award-winning musical “Cabaret”, Michelle Williams drops by Peter Lindbergh’s New York studio to appear in the new advertising campaign for Louis Vuitton. Styled by Carine Roitfeld, the actress shows a modern allure as she dons pieces from Nicolas Ghesquière’s collections.

    Originally created in 1958, the Lockit has ceaselessly reinvented itself, now, more supple in cashmere calfskin, with elegant curves and rounded lines. Here, this new campaign spotlights new shades: beige Galet and Black with python trim.

    In his Fall 2014 fashion show, Nicolas Ghesquière paid tribute to the legendary Louis Vuitton trunk with a fine piece of jewellery, “La Petite Malle” to wear as a distinctive pendant.

    With over 150 years of history, Louis Vuitton trunks, secular emblems of the House, are synonymous with travel, adventure, exploration, secrets and treasures. For his very first women’s collection, Nicolas Ghesquière specifically designed miniature trunks to wear as a minaudière bag and as a refined 18 carat yellow gold pendant as seen here.

    This precious talisman will now dress women’s neckline in the form of three different trunks to choose from: a cubic trunk in Epi gold, an opened trunk with compartments and a rectangular trunk in sandy gold.

    The exact design of the historical Louis Vuitton trunk is recreated with thorough craftsmanship: corner pieces, delicate padding, handles, saddles, “LV“ initials engraved, nails, Epi leather effect, and a gold bar in the back engraved with hallmark, gold weight and composition. Last but not least, a “lock hole” chain carries each pendant.

    Select your “Petite Malle” pendant here.
