Louis Vuitton launches a digital campaign with model and equestrian Eve Jobs

Classified as one of Louis Vuitton‘s iconic designs, the LV Twist is adored by many for its elegant look and versatility. Most prominently, its signature emblematic Twist lock system on the flap closure. Since its debut in 2015, the Twist has continued to thrive in various colour and print variations, from the signature monogram to monochrome tones. This winter 2022 season, the fashion house reimagines the Twist releasing new animations featuring the late Steve Jobs’s daughter Eve Jobs to front the campaign. Jobs is seen here donning the newest Fall/Winter 2022 collection while carrying the LV Twist to reflect her love for the countryside.

Still adopting the iconic chain bag design, the LV Twist lock is reimagined in a new “Gourmette” lock in four variations: colourful strass, enamel, an engraved Monogram and engraved metal. To elevate the overall design, the latest variations include a faceted gold or silver chain to refine the silhouette.
