Juergen Teller and Nicolas Ghesquière have become something of a dream team since the photographer linked up with the designer for his fall campaign. Now they have a new addition to their clique — not a person, but a building. The Frank Gehry–designed Fondation Louis Vuitton, which was used as the site of the house’s spring 2015 show, recently opened to the public. For the latest issue of Style.com’s print magazine, Teller embarked on a fashion shoot there starring models Emmy Rappe, Olympia Campbell, Angel Rutledge, and Lululeika Ravn Liep in Ghesquière’s designs. If you’re going to lounge around on the grass, there are worse places to do it than at a bulwark of contemporary design.

In the accompanying story, Ghesquière tells Style.com’s Nicole Phelps that he used to make clothes “for museums” while at Balenciaga, but is now making pieces “for real life.” And he’s designing with trend-proof wardrobes in mind: “I make the commitment that I am never going to say, ‘Ha-ha, everything you thought was good three months ago is now for the garbage.’”
