It was a rain soaked day in Paris, but once one got past the wet walk towards the imposing, futuristic Fondation Louis Vuitton, the outside was forgotten and you were transported into Nicholas Ghesquiere’s Vuitton. A place with a glowing blue set, complete with icy, broken mirrors and concrete sculptures. Sitting front row were the most famous faces found all week—Catherine Deneuve, Alicia Vikander, Jennifer Connolly, Selena Gomez, Jaden Smith, Zendaya and Léa Seydoux. And then a collection of cool, sporty, sculptural clothes, finished with heeled, lug sole boots began their march. The trench reigned on the runway this season, but Ghesquiere’s came cinched at the waist, and when paired with patent white cropped trousers, created a bold new shape while maintaining an inherent ease.
Athletic inspiration cropped up on knits, jackets and coats that melded nautical with sport in black, white and red—all while emphasizing a slim waist and exaggerated hip. In bijoux, the ears were adorned with mixed metal stick figures that swayed with each step.
Scarf prints and slip elements were another welcomed theme—and somehow it all melded easily together in one coherent collection. Those lug boots got different color laces, that came in black, silver and white—lest one is ready to start acquiring. In bags, there were ladylike top handles, leopard print bags, weekenders, giant logo trunks—in other words, no shortage of options for the LV devotee.
This girl is willing to show off her body in a pair of sleek, shiny red pants—but it’s all very strong meets sexy— she’s owning these looks and most likely, the room.
The finale looks were dresses with trompe l’oeil paillettes, either in simple black and white or kaleidoscope colors—all chic, easy and impossibly cool.
