Louis Vuitton hit the Musée d’Orsay for its fall-winter show on Monday, sending off a modern collection of playful, sculptural looks on a glossy black runway designed to evoke a Parisian street. Exploring notions of French style, Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of the brand’s women’s collections, plays with oversized clothing and trompe-l’oeil influences, including black loafers worn with white stockings and fluffy jacket-like coats.
Other looks included oversized Bermuda shorts, strapless dresses with spaghetti straps, and shimmering sequined dresses. The handbags were varied, including one designed to look like a typical blue traffic sign in Paris, and decked out in green – with “Louis Vuitton” stamped in white lettering.
At the end of the show, the sound of footsteps was projected into space, giving the impression of unseen models walking down the runway – an effect created by sound artist Nicholas Becker. Ghesquière then beamed a smile at the guests in the front row, which included movie stars Emma Stone, Zendaya and Catherine Deneuve who were seated alongside family members of Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH.
Also present was Pharrell Williams, who was named artistic director of menswear design at Louis Vuitton last month. Paris Fashion Week, which features famous fashion brands such as Dior, Saint Laurent, Valentino and Caring-owned Chanel, ends on Tuesday.
