The concept of Louis Vuitton and Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière is the journey into a muffled but above all glamorous world.
A warm palette, visibly in shades tending towards orange, covered the entire area at number 103 avenue des Champs-Élysées. Ideally, a hot air balloon descends and, when opened, covers James Chinlund’s scenography. In the installation created by Penique Productions a narrative voice pervades the passage of the models through the performance by French artist Zaho de Sagazan.
A retro way of traveling but, reinvented today between the Fahion House’s style and personalized trends. In the 46 looks proposed, the volumes are layered for airy silhouettes and tailored suits that vary, providing personality to the women who wear them. The belts become an aesthetic and distinctive element for the collection, as well as for the rhinestone accessories.
A high-waisted skirt with chromatic geometries, a long shirt becomes a dress with a mini bag over the shoulder. Games of vertical stripes on shirts and dresses like a fresh combination of light blue and white. The necklaces themselves become looks to be worn in combination with the dress. Suspenders, finely crafted, hold up the high-waisted trousers.
The texture is rich, the fabrics are shiny in contrast with light woven knits. The iconic accessories become adaptable and revised, always becoming timeless. Leather becomes the protagonist not only in clothes but also in shoes and open-toe sandals.
LV and Nicolas Ghesquière propose iconic elegance for Spring Summer 2024 in the name of distinction. Having taste and personality without going too far in shapes and combinations. Luxury for moments that almost always become important. Creations to be refined and different in look but always in style.
