Louis Vuitton chose the Louvre, more specifically the Michelangelo and Daru galleries, which are in the process of being renovated, to close the Paris parade season in style. With more than 11 thousand spectators, this only on Instagram, following the parade, Nicolas Ghesquiere traveled through mythology to embody the collection and speak of different female representations. One of them is Winged Victory of Samothrace. There is, around it, a symbolism of freedom and adventure in exploring the unknown that works perfectly as a metaphor for today and that is the message for us to move on. The French translation for winter is visually inspiring. In place of the usual draping that this reference suggests, interesting volumes and a mixture of elements come into play, reinforcing the aesthetics that Ghesquière has been exercising in his collections. Sports elements blend with very feminine details and interesting textures. All of this appears very well tied in the beautiful opening look of the show, with cloud skirt combined with jacket and oversized knitting. Another important reference was the partnership with the Italian artistic studio Fornasetti, founded in 1940, whose collection of over 13,000 artifacts became a decorative fuel for clothes and accessories and will result in a later capsule collection featuring a wide selection of Louis Vuitton items based on the Fornasetti motifs, such as buildings, locks, keys and portraits. The collection by Fornasetti, with images from antiquity, builds an aesthetic and creative dialogue of time travel with a variety of Greek, Etruscan and Roman sculptures from the museum. The result is a rich combination of colors, textures and traditional techniques, including jacquard, embroidery and laser printing. “With this collaboration, I wanted to use the pieces to evoke the continuous modernity of Fornasetti's artistic world”, says Ghesquière.
