Spring 2017 Anticipations
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.
