Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
As the Paris fashion crowd gripped their runway facing seats in anticipation for Nicolas Ghesquière’s fall/winter 2014-15 debut for Louis Vuitton, all was right in the fashion world once again. After quite the hiatus, Ghesquière took a rather relaxed approach to his latest collection, delivering more of what women really want to wear, rather than just the spectacular frills he’s so well known for.
This is not to say that he didn’t deliver a lustworthy collection. The craftsmanship was indeed there in the subtle details. Once again we saw cuts and styles very reminiscent of the late sixties, early seventies, but Ghesquière’s approach is still rather unique.
Fitted leather trench coats with a winged collar in a contrasting color were paired with knit sheaths. A-line mini skirts were in leather, suede, or wool and contained one large patchwork pocket or front zipper. Pants were tapered and high-waisted with trench-collared blouses and cropped ski lounge sweaters. Miniskirts and slim-fit pants were paired with seventies lapel shirts and all belted tightly at the waist with a long leather belt worn tied, not buckled. Tank dresses were body hugging in shiny leather with asymmetrical plaid prints at the hem.
After this debut, we are positive we aren’t alone in our rising anticipation for Ghesquière’s next season reveal.
