Louis Vuitton’s show took place in the future home of its Place Vendôme flagship. On display were sophistication and tailoring, nestling between practicality and experimentation. Creative director Ghesqui.re showed a collection firmly rooted in Parisienne style, opening with a series of fluid, one-sleeved draped jersey dresses that seemed to float as they moved. Black and white polka-dot and checkerboard prints danced across Eighties-shouldered flippy dresses with circular cut-outs at the hip. Rigorously sharp with jagged angles, jutting necklines, shoulders cut to slant forwards, skewed wrap-over hemlines, dramatically sliced underarms and sleeves are the power suits of the future.
Known for his extravagant undertakings for his runway shows, this collection was no exception with a basketball court, cheerleaders, popcorn vendors and breakdancing mascots. Not to be missed were the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team and infamous rapper Busta Rhymes. The collection shouts sports-driven, unconventional and high-geared style. Black with orange, yellow and electric blues in soft cotton jersey, leisure chic blazers and sequined embellishments were just a few impressions.
