In a new title for Louis Vuitton's Fashion Eye Series, New York photographer Slim Aarons captures the warm atmosphere of the Italian Riviera in the 70s and 80s, inspired by the golden age of transalpine cinema.

Under the sun of Portofino or Cinque Terre, Slim Aarons finds an inexhaustible playground in the mystical universe of Italian cinema. Over the course of several days spent at Cinecittà, Europe's largest film-making complex, he captures shared moments between iconic actors of the era – from Marcello Mastroianni to Romy Schneider, interwoven with shots of anonymous people he meets on the beach. Through sun-kissed coastal skin, long lunches shaded by a lemon tree or parties set in plush interiors, the American photograph writes his own script.



Each book in Louis Vuitton’s Fashion Eye series reveals a country, a region, a city, or a destination through the gaze of a fashion photographer. Title after title, a broad compendium of perspectives emerges, one that shifts with the destinations, including urban panoramas and natural landscapes, scenes of local life, and more contemplative work. Fashion Eye gives rise to an unprecedented dialogue between emerging talents, seasoned photographers, and fashion photography legends.
