Louis Vuitton’s Autumn/Winter 2011 Ad Campaign
The Louis Vuitton’s Autumn/Winter 2011 Ad Campaign does a great job at taking this piece of clothing traditionally worn by British police men (or “bobbies” as they are otherwise known) and making it exude upper-class style and grace. The models look stunning as they pose with elegance in an expensive looking car. They even have their perfectly groomed puppy fashion accessories that demonstrate that even their pets get the royal treatment. If you have ever wanted to wear one of these British-style hats, but didn’t think they were quite stylish enough, then the Louis Vuitton’s AW 2011 Ad Campaign may make you change your mind.
