Louis Vuitton & NASA.

Flipping through Sunday Styles in the NY Times I was amazingly startled by this gorgeous ad for Louis Vuitton celebrating space travel (happy 40th anniversary to moon-walking last week!) and featuring three people one might never think to see in a LV ad: Sally Ride, Buzz Aldrin, and Jim Lovell. And of course a LV bag with Ms. Ride. Further inspection led me to their own microsite called Louis Vuitton Journeys where you can watch interviews with all three astronauts. Also, I discovered that the talented Annie Leibovitz was the photographer behind this incredible image on the ad. I wonder if this will be a segue into a series using history-makers and the wonderful Ms. Leibovitz? I wouldn't complain about that combination.
