Under Ghesquière’s guidance, Louis Vuitton is the perfect mix of high fashion, streetwear and futuristic wear. With those seen throughout the collection, inspiration was also taken from the 18th century art as well as an ode to the TV show, Stranger Things.

Tailored silhouettes, leather and complex embellishments were also seen. One of Glass’ favourite looks was the white, sleeveless, v-neck tailored waist-coat jacket which flared over the hips. The model wore a stark white belt over the waits and fitted trousers which had knee patches and zips. Paired with white and black trainers and a black, square box bag with chains which had specs of bronze on the woven criss-cross design. Similarly, there was a leather, black, sleeveless button-up, shirt and a matching pleated skirt. Marte Mei van Haaster also wore black and orange ski style sunglasses transporting us to the Matrix.

A couple of standout looks were the embroidered jackets and coats. One was a Victoria style cut with open sleeves and a high neck which opened up showing the garment underneath adorned with gold, white and brown flowers and embellished, wooden buttons. Another was a sleeveless coat which had a bright colour palette of red, pink and blue which matched perfectly with the silver trousers worn.

Nicolas Ghesquière brings together the past, the present and the future in his garments and the Louis Vuitton show is always rightly eagerly anticipated and a joy to experience.
