Louis Vuitton in South Africa

Louis Vuitton's Spring 2014 campaign, The Spirit of Travel, is the latest example of a luxury designer photoshoot featuring an African landscape.

On set, Karen Elson arches gracefully extending a branch to a giraffe while Edie Campbell sways to and fro while perched on the back of a zebra. I'm a bit disappointed it turned into a video about a luggage fashion shoot rather than a more artistic presentation of the brand. At least the still images captured for the campaign are beautiful.

The campaign was styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Peter Lindbergh. Photo credit: WWD.
