The just-unveiled images, shot by Steven Meisel, feature Marc's muses - Catherine Deneuve, Sofia Coppola, Gisele Bündchen, Fan Bingbing, Caroline de Maigret and Edie Campbell - in a sombre ode to the designer. In each, the model is seated and looking straight at the camera, giving the shots the gravitas of fine art portraits.
'It was a very emotional shoot, and I find this shows in the images,' Frédéric Winckler, Vuittons communications and events director, told WWD. 'Its not a melancholic campaign. Its really celebrating women who inspire Marc.'
