The Louvre is iconic, and during Paris Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton presented its new collection in its Coure Carré courtyard under the stars, with an illumination feature by Es Devlin totally unique for the space. An entirely new landscape created an experience, as much as a show, complete with walking pavilions merged with guest seats in long glass-sided shipping container corridors. “Through the Looking Glass” came to mind as we watched models—far more mature and futuristic than any fairytale Alice—trot down the runway, under and passed fluorescent lights, showing off intergalactic-like pieces from designer Nicolas Ghesquière.
Cap-sleeved shirts with pants, long jumpsuits, and ribbed dresses over sweaters were all paired with boots—some zipped up, others tied up, and most in crocodile, leather, or patent leather. High-waisted trousers and dresses donned 1980s-esque patterns, vests were long and leather, and new blouson jackets, tank tops, and tee-shirts had fun new details, like frayed edges tied up with beads and sequins, and long, tinsel-like material dangling around the top.
Jumpers had long sleeves, were zipped to the neck, and showing turned-up saucer-like sleeve detailing, seemingly borrowed from a Sci-Fi film. Very futuristic, the collection was sprinkled with an array of new accessories, too, like thin metal belts with an LV monogram charm, metallic chains, doctor bags, white bonnet-like caps, and mini briefcases.
