Louis Vuitton is updating its Fashion Eye series with four new books by fashion photographers focusing their lenses on travel destinations. The new titles take on Japan as it opened up to the West, the French Riviera in the ’70s, modern Saint Tropez, and a recent trip aboard the fabled Orient Express.
Sarah Moon — a former model, fashion and advertising photographer, and filmmaker born in 1941 — shot Orient Express to recreate the beauty of times gone by with a model that looks timeless. Adolphe De Meyer’s posthumous Japan is from his 1900 trip for a look back at the Meiji era. Slim Aarons’ French Riviera, also published after his death, captured a sense of leisure under his commitment to only photograph attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places. Osma Harvalahti, born in 1983 and easily the youngest of the four photographers, sought out to find the “real” Saint Tropez and highlighted local characters.
French Riviera and Saint Tropez were published in July, while Orient Express and Japan are both due to release in November. All four are priced at $50, and you can buy the first two on Louis Vuitton’s website.
