Louis Vuitton slow down the fast pace of fashion: ‘amidst the frenetic hustle and bustle of the modern consumer landscape one of the key creative objectives for Louis Vuitton was to slow things down, and take a moment to capture the true essence of the sitter, in order to create something that was unique, exclusive and timeless'.

The LV's ‘double exposure’ project uses a collodion wet plate photographic process - a 19th Century camera that requires the sitter to pose for 12 seconds and shot photo with with a delightfully antiqued patina.
Thandie gives us a sneaky glimpse of some of her favourite things – her passport, an old oil painting and a teddy bear. ‘It really takes you into the heart and history of photography itself,’ says Newton of the collodion process ‘and to parallel that, we’re getting into the heart and history of me.’
The film will premiere on Louis Vuitton's facebook page on September 8th
