Louis Vuitton- Collection spring/summer 2015 in Paris (with interview)
The louis vuitton foundation – which officially opens next october to the public – held the third show by nicolas ghesquiere (including the cruise collection) for the luxury house. a black room with screens projected videos of faces had a very futuristic feel, letting us know that we are on the verge of departing on a new lv adventure. again we feel a sixties-seventies spirit reworked by the designer, but with a touch of freshness and modern romantism through the woven dresses in leather and varnished leather, with high collars and little black ribbon neck ties. other dresses carried a fluidity, in white and khaki-brown. leather was also found on the skirts which ever so slightly flared with large colourful stripes or on short cropped biker jackets. the perfect jeans are coordinated with a navy blazer. the arty and quirky images (the red car from starsky&hutch, a hair dryer, and matches) are printed on some white pieces. the trousers are worn loosely and finish mid calf, unless you choose the pair with leather knee protectors. a “swinging london” feeling reappeared throughout with floral prints on velour pieces. sequined embroidered dresses are zipped at the front, again for ease. a huge show, in a magical location beautifully closes paris fashion week. interview: olivier saillard: it seemed natural but all surprising and a little bit irreverent in fashion, and i think one should be a bit like that. jonathan anderson: it’s a classic ultimately, and it’s part of the french landscape, and i liked that he brought it down to a younger level, and kind of like a new type of french wardrobe. hanneli mustaparta : the louis vuitton show was gorgeous, it was a mix of so many things, it was a mix of sixties and seventies and then something contemporary at the same time and it was really, really well done and very inspiring. music from the show.
