This is one beautiful campaign that combines Léa Seydoux, visually-breathtaking architecture in Mexico, and Louis Vuitton's classic handbags all in one

Louis Vuitton continues its journey of exploring architecture in its SS16 travel campaign. Before hitting Rio de Janeiro for its Cruise show this year, Louis Vuitton travels to Mexico to renowned Pritzker-Prize winning architect Luis Barragan's Cuadra San Cristobal, a spectacular equestrian estate that combines minimalist geometric lines within its earthen-toned walls.


Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, this campaign features the brand's actress and new muse Léa Seydoux clad in pieces from the Pre-Fall 2016 collection as she totes the real stars of the campaign: the Capucines and City Steamer handbags. The Capucines is a new classic of the Maison that has a discreet yet elegant design for wearers who prefer an understated look, whereas the roomy and structured Steamer is the modernised reinterpretation of Louis Vuitton's original Steamer that was first created in 1901.


Pique your visual senses with these beautiful shots from the campaign:
