This is a project together with Louis Vuitton and the stylist Carine Roitfeld and Madame Figaro, starring the Belgian singer Lous and the Yakuza. All the looks Lous is wearing are designed by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton, for his part, is interested in the uncertain ground between the past, present, and future. “I like the figure of a vampire who travels through the ages, adapting to dress codes of the era”.
Hunter & Gatti celebrates with color the powerful energy of Lous and The Yakuza. The “dots” symbolize the presence of the artist's photography eye and mind coming to grips with the world via an extended hand and brush beyond the photography.
Mekhi Alante “Lucky” was born with a rare genetic feature called heterochromia which means he has two different eye colors–one brown and the other, blue. The North Carolina native was arrested in 2016 for speeding and driving a stolen vehicle. His mugshot get viral and he became a model from that.
