Louis Vuitton have a rich history of featuring some of the world’s most inspiring figures from across the board in their campaigns, the latest person being the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the 18-time gold medal-winner is pictured sitting in a bath tub wearing speedos and goggles. A Louis Vuitton monogram tote bag sits on the ground next to him. The imagery is great, but what’s he doing with his gear on in the tub? In addition to the image above, Phelps is also photographed with Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina – whose 48-year-old record of 18 Olympic medals was surpassed by Phelps when he took the gold in the men’s 4x200m freestyle team relay.
