“I looked somewhere that has been calling out to me for a long time, somewhere I hadn’t taken the time to go back to. It was like a reset to uncover one inspiration after another...”
Nicolas Ghesquière said about the new collection.
Cruise 2021 carries in the spirit of creative freedom. Among other things, it plays with the iconic Louis Vuitton motif, mixed with a floral monogram and, somewhat untraditionally, with decks of playing cards. What's the symbolism behind this? The power and ability of a game to cultivate a community. And that's quite a commendable purpose, don't you think?!
When the eyes start to bleed
But when we look away from this higher purpose and approach the Cruise 2021 collection with critical eyes, we feel disappointed… severely disappointed. The collection could be best described as a vortex of chaos - or a circus. An abundance of ruffles, a mermaid-shaped skirt combined with a shirt and a colorful sweater, or bumblebee leggings paired with a tie, a jacket and pumps? Our eyes are literally bleeding!
Show your lack of taste
The biggest flop? We are pretty sure it's this outfit, which is a perfect choice if you want to look like someone who has a ton of money but zero taste to go with it. Ugh… Pure fashion hell!
Even in such an embarrassing collection as Cruise 2021, one can find several outfits that actually aren't half bad! What do you think about this striped dress, the purple mini dress combined with a luxurious white trench coat or the romantic model in a nude shade paired with a lovely gray cape? We could definitely find space for these in our closet!
Shoes for Cinderella… and for LP-Life.com
If there's anything we'd kill for in this collection, it's shoes! Those ankle shoes in pastel yellow and black, the luxurious minimalist pumps in divine blue (by the way, it's the color of 2020) and gray or stylish black and white sneakers? Simply perfect!
