Michelle Williams has been the face of Louis Vuitton ad campaigns for loads of seasons past. Now, the actress graces the French maison's latest ad campaign in a short film titled The Spirit of Travel.

Louis Vuitton describes the campaign as "a quest for freedom and adventure", evoking a couture impression of wanderlust. Michelle hits the tarmac against an arid, desolate desert background, hanging out the side of a vintage car decked out in aviators. The words "I have no destination", "I have a destiny" float across the screen as she cruises the barren desert.

Co-star Alicia Vikander, whom we saw in their Autumn Winter 2015 ads, traipses across the desert and strikes a pose surrounded by vintage luggage trunks and Louis Vuitton handbags. The two carry the house's latest bags, the Capucines tote and Twist flap bag.

Watch the two ooze decadence in the label's most striking designs, bags in tow, in the full campaign video above.
