Louis Vuitton unveils new shades of the Capucines handbag with a beautiful campaign starring Michelle Williams

Louis Vuitton’s timeless handbag the Capucines is being reborn in three beautiful new shades. Named after the rue des Capucines in Paris, where Louis Vuitton opened his first store in 1854, the bag is simply structured, crafted with full-grain Taurillon leather with only the bare minimum of hardware.

Though, the colors are not your typical fall/winter shades, but they are made exceptional by the simplicity of the bag itself. The Capucines is clearly not about bells and whistles, but about refined sophistication; the brand has expertly conveyed this signature aesthetic through their new campaign with Michelle Williams. The actress and Louis Vuitton ambassadress appeared in campaign shot by Peter Lindbergh, which featured the Capucines in its new shades. The images are more editorial than advertisement with Michelle’s fragile beauty serving as the perfect complement to the stark simplicity of the Capucines bag.
