The show took place at the ‘boutique-to-be’, Place Vendome flagship, scheduled to open its doors in 2017.
“I realized that I didn’t explore that much yet the sophistication and the more dressed up part of Louis Vuitton” said Nicolas Ghesquiere, creative director of the fashion house.
Ghesquiere’s collection was all about experimentation; from draping to cut outs, anyone could easily spot the asymmetric draped jerseys with the midriff cutouts, decorated with an eighties touch of crystals and glitters.
Before the transparent sheer but not so revealing dresses at the end, it’s very important to mention those sweatshirts and a couple of t-shirts with the LV logo, which in my opinion will be the ‘IT” staples for next summer’s fashion.
The Louis Vuitton press note shares with us a little secret story even Parisians ignored; a while ago, and before it was called by its actual name, the Place Vendome was called Place des conquetes. So this show had a unique conquest inspired phone cases which models held in their hands.
My favorite pieces definitely include the boots (in all the colors, especially the light pink python and the olive green python), the asymmetrical skirts and the glittery long dresses. It feels good to see Ghesquiere experimenting the more feminine side of the brand, something many clients/fans of the label are going to enjoy so much.
And of course, the gorgeous iPhone covers, who knows, maybe phones might even replace bags after all!
