The eternal allure of travel and the perennial power of airport advertising combine to powerful effect in the ‘Towards A Dream’ campaign. The multi-faceted communication embraces 57 airbridges and 114 faces at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport Terminal 2

CHINA. French luxury house Louis Vuitton has unveiled a vividly immersive brand campaign dubbed ‘Towards A Dream’ at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport in partnership with JCDecaux Momentum Shanghai Airport Advertising Co*.

Louis Vuitton described the campaign, evocatively captured by Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen, as “A continuation of an enduring quest and perennial voyage towards imagination, freedom and discovery.

“Travel transcends the physical, dreamlike landscapes encounter a spirit of youthful wonder, and self-discovery becomes a personal journey,” the company added.

The campaign embraces 57 airbridges and 114 faces at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport Terminal 2.

It reaches 100% of Hongqiao’s T2 passenger traffic, from departure to arrival.

Chinese readers can view two short films in Chinese (above) and English (below) that capture the impact and drama of the ‘Towards A Dream’ campaign. They are also available to non-Chinese readers via our YouTube channel (below).

In a series of chapters thus far spanning Iceland, Greece, Jordan and France, this latest campaign touches down in wild surroundings of New Mexico and Texas where the renowned Louis Vuitton trunk acts as an imaginary vessel from which a young boy and his band of friends set out on an adventure. Photographer Viviane Sassen captures whimsical shots depicting the unbridled imagination of youth. In White Sands, New Mexico and the wilderness outside of Austin, Texas, perspectives are played with, shadows enlivened, and nature harnessed.
