TWO FOR TUMI: Photographer Michael Thompson recently shot Shalom Harlow but it wasn't for a magazine feature. The duo, under the direction of David Lipman, came together for the new Tumi ad campaign. The brand is repositioning itself as a bigger, more fashionable player in the luxury marketplace, with the addition of materials like Napa leather and higher price points. "I wanted the advertising to express a mood of luxury and style," said David Chu, executive creative director. Prices for luggage now go up to $2,900 and women's handbags range from $395 to $795. The campaign will roll out in the September issues of Portfolio, Town & Country, Vogue, Departures, W, Vanity Fair and GQ. — Amy Wicks
AGENT MAGGIE: Agent Provocateur has tapped Maggie Gyllenhaal for its upcoming online campaign. A spokeswoman declined to elaborate on why the company selected Gyllenhaal — although her flesh-baring appearances in the high-brow S&M movie "Secretary" and her turn in "SherryBaby" probably didn't hurt. Photographed by Alice Hawkins, the campaign will make its debut on Sept. 1. Gyllenhaal will appear in the first "episode" of the campaign; three more episodes will follow with different stars, "in due course," said the spokeswoman. — A.W.
