PFW: Louis Vuitton SS15 – Into The Future



Louis Vuitton’s SS15 show had a very futuristic feel to it, from the giant hologram avatar heads that floated above the runway to the show’s backdrop, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, a Frank Gehry-designed space shape like architectural masterpiece in Paris’s Bois de Boulogne.

It was daylight out, but inside the dark basement it seems like show-goers were transported into a giant spaceship with transparent screens and as for the aliens; well, they were the fabulously well dressed models who made their appearance following a very sci-fi monologue from the looming giant avatar heads, “..the journey starts here”. There was a fluid motion about the way Nicolas Ghesquiére arranged the show from one theme to the next, lead by model Jean Campbell who opened the show, from the preppy a-line retro silhouettes to the velvet Americana jackets to the woven and sequinned covered Seventies dresses.

The simplistic LV logo bags that lightly swung from the models hands may be the new it-bag of the season, a classic accessory that makes the testimony as to how Nicolas Ghesquiére’s second show for the parisian mega-fashion house is taking the artistic direction of its lengthy heritage to new heights and marking it the show of the season.
