I found this Industrie Magazine Editorial from one of the distinguished blogs I am following and I thought, why not reblog it! So, here I am, posting pictures of one of my favorite Fashion Designers, Marc Jacobs, and that, through the lenses of renowned photographer Patrick Demarchelier. I so love this Editorial!! It kind of spoken to me through those metaphysical phenomena...

Photographed by Steven Meisel, Karlie Kloss & Caroline Trentini are fronting the fall/winter 2011 ad campaign for Swiss fashion house Bally.
She's barefoot, wearing her own clothes, no makeup and toting her own elegantly weathered monogrammed Alto bag. Yet Angelina Jolie looks radiant and completely in her element, reclining on a wooden boat in a verdant, lakeside landscape in Cambodia's Siem Reap province. Jolie discovered the country in 2000 when she filmed "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," and it sparked her humanitarian activism.
She's the latest celebrity to pose for Louis Vuitton's popular "Core Values" campaign - and surely the only one who brought four children to the photo shoot, some of whom had to be shooed out of Annie Leibovitz's frame.
"People are not used to seeing Angelina in this situation," said Pietro Beccari, Vuitton's executive vice president, unveiling the image exclusively to WWD. "I like the fact that it's a real moment. This travel message we give through personal journeys is a fundamental one for the brand."
|Pietro Beccari Executive Vice President of Louis Vuitton|
The ad is slated to break in the International Herald Tribune on Wednesday, followed by a range of news, general interest and lifestyle publications, including Vanity Fair.
Beccari declined to disclose budgets for the media buy, or comment on reports Vuitton paid the American actress millions for the shoot. He would only say Jolie donated an undisclosed portion of her fees to a charity.
The campaign is expected to run for at least 18 months alongside a few other recent "core values" personalities, including Bono and Sean Connery. Vuitton introduced the advertising concept in 2007 as a way to trumpet its travel roots and showcase its perennial monogrammed leather goods as a balance to its fashion-driven marketing - and to reach a broader audience. Other personalities who have posed for Vuitton include Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards and Catherine Deneuve.
Also on Wednesday, Vuitton plans to post a teaser on its Web site, louisvuittonjourneys.com/cambodia, foreshadowing an interview with Jolie that will be posted later in the month. In it, she is expected to discuss how her visit to Cambodia was a life-changing experience, awakening her to the plight of Third World countries. She adopted her eldest son, Maddox, from Cambodia and she and husband Brad Pitt established the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which is active in community development and conservation in the country.

Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH, has announced that John Galliano will never work for LVMH again. I feel saddened to hear this news. For some of you readers, LVMH is a world leader in luxury, LVMH Moët Hennessy - Louis Vuitton possesses a unique portfolio of over 60 prestigious brands. Now, Bill Gaytten will take over the Galliano Company as Creative Director of the Brand. Gaytten has worked for Galliano and Dior for years, and presented Galliano’s men’s collection in Paris last week.
|Bill Gaytten stepped out the shadows to take a bow at the finale of the first John Galliano Homme show since the celebrated British couturier's spectacular fall from grace in February.|
In contrast to the ever-flamboyant Galliano, Gaytten -- a specialist in cutting -- sent out a remarkably more wearable collection on Friday, albeit with nods to his predecessor's sensibilities.
Building on a 1960s Swinging London theme, the show opened with military jackets with pilgrim hats, then moved into colourful David Hockney-esque outfits and a parade of underwear including candy-striped hipsters.
Surprisingly, the suits were probably the most business-friendly of any others seen since the spring-summer shows began on Wednesday in the French capital.
Asked to set out his vision for the lable, Gaytten replied: "I think keeping the cult of Galliano. It's always romantic, there's always a narrative -- and cool cutting, which is what I do."
He replied "yes, well, yes I have," when asked if he had been in touch with Galliano recently, but then refrained from saying more.
