For @LouisVuitton Spring Summer 2020, we became time travelers as Nicolas Ghesquière transported us to the Belle Époque. But as we may imagine time travellers to do, the models, though decked in Art Nouveau details, from the puff sleeves to the mermaid tresses, also carried relics of future-past periods, with VHS tape shaped bags sporting titles we now consider vintage. Within the time paradox Ghesquière created, we are left wondering: ‘how will future generations make references to our now?’ #pfw #harpersbazaarsg #paris #parisfashionweek #louisvuitton
