Yes they are beautiful, they are tall and sculptural, but what characterises Tine and Luisa, the two designers of fun handbag brand TL180, is their coolness. I had already ran into the two Louis Vuitton ambassadors a couple of times, and even shot them at one point – each time in good spirits and a lot of laughter! They live between Paris and Rome, and for our Please shoot we meet up in a very bohemian apartment belonging to Tine (the brunette) in the 9th arrondissement, during an unbearable July heatwave. They give us the keys to their unique style : very vintage for Tine, more rock’n’roll for Luisa.
