Campaign for the major French fashion house causes controversy in France as people accuse it of glamorizing sex work.
The French fashion house Louis Vuitton has been accused of glamorising prostitution in an advertising campaign video to showcase the label’s autumn/winter collection. The video has sparked outrage in France after Libération, the leftwing newspaper, published a letter signed by various high-profile lawyers and intellectuals accusing it of “assimilating luxury with the world’s second most profitable criminal activity after drug trafficking”. One signatory, Dominique Attias, a lawyer who is outspoken about gender issues in France, called it “an extremely shocking representation of women”.
