The "art of travel" is one aspect of the philosophy of the legendary fashion house. Creative director of the brand, Nicolas Ghesquière made a return to this theme and celebrates in the SS19 luxury collection the world of future, beautiful coasts and natural phenomena, which form the precious memories of all travellers. We wish to introduce to you the futuristic landscape by Louis Vuitton, which astounded the whole of Paris!
Nicolas Ghesquière is quite rightly considered to be one of the most interesting designers of his generation and belongs to those who through his collections successfully influences world fashion trends. And what did the designer come up with this time round?
The luxury collection of SS19 is full of panoramas, exotic locations, space illustrations, bold colours and motifs telling a story of adventure. Louis Vuitton creates an illusion of ideal geography, presenting a new world that will transport you to space age and sun-drenched locations.
Futuristic graphics, which the models from the luxury SS19 possess, are in contrast with the colourful floral models. The brand presented these in the second half of the show, especially at its conclusion.
Louis Vuitton again demonstrated perfect craftsmanship and luxurious details in the form of massive shoulder structures, quirky applications in the area of the chest and shoulders, embroidered meshes, expanded and balloon sleeves or ruching. From the popular accessories, the petite malle handbag appeared, inspired by design of a trunk.
The fashion show of Louis Vuitton SS19 was attended by many important personalities, inter alia including Cate Blanchett, Alicia Vikander, Catherine Deneuve, Nina Dobrev, Joe Jonas, Justin Theroux, Lea Seydoux or model Natalia Vodianova.
The Louis Vuitton fashion house presented the SS19 collection on the soil not only of French kings, but also the current centre of world art. Unfortunately, not even these premises of Louvre itself managed to improve the overall impression from the collection, which I personally would rename "H2O, Just Add Water".
I would expect from Nicolas Ghesquièr, as from a typically French designer, just a little bit more. I certainly do not want to wear bland cream-coloured, and on top of that half-ripped dress with a giant sweatshirt underneath. Or the pure white coat which by its shape resembles an almost sucked out TicTac sweet. The designer had to put a lot of effort into that! :)
And the word "futurism" and its meaning are not very well understood even at Louis Vuitton. Because leather jackets in cognac colour with monster black buttons were seen the last time at Matějská fairground in 1997. I think this is more like time travel backwards. For me is one of the biggest failures of the Paris Fashion Week.
