Apparently Sean Connery, much like a fine wine, gets better with age. It’s the general consensus amongst the fairer sex and I’m inclined to agree. Equal parts elder statesman and badass the dude looks like he could beat the shit out of the new Bond AND steal your girlfriend. But don’t worry he’s too busy kicking it on a pristine island counting his money and seducing the locals.
Shot by Annie Leibovitz, Connery joins the likes of Sofia and Francis Ford Coppola, Catherine Deneuve, Mikhail Gorbachev and Keith Richards (unlike Connery, time has not been kind to this guy).
The accompanying caption reads: ‘There are journeys that turn into legends.’ And epitomizes how all older guys should dress. Super clean. Sweater, chinos and classic watch, belt and bag.
Louis Vuitton’s director of communications Antoine Arnault said of the campaign:
‘We are extremely proud that an actor of such immense stature should have agreed to participate in Louis Vuitton’s Core Values campaign. This wonderful portrait, which captures all Sir Sean Connery’s legendary allure, is bound to have a tremendous impact.’
