It finally happened. Much like the dawn of my favorite season, this week ushered in the show I had been counting down to all Fashion Month: Louis Vuitton. Ever since Nicolas Ghesquière’s stunning debut for the French house last winter, I have been dreaming about what the Spring/Summer 2015 collection might have in store. Well, the pictures are live, and rest assured I was not disappointed.
When designing the his latest collection, Ghesquière kept up with his wearable approach to fashion. After the show, he was heard describing the overall mood of the house as “a wardrobe”. This was clear right from the moment the first model sashayed down the runway. The Spring line-up offered a beautiful continuation of fall’s distinct sixties vibe. This time, the French designed delved further into the seventies, with many a flared jean and swingy minidress alike being shown. The shoes, which were mostly leather boots of the ankle-length and knee-high variation, as well as some of the color scheme, was reminiscent of the fall collection, however in no way did any of it feel overdone. Quite the opposite, in fact. By the finale walk, you were begging for more.
Its been almost three days now, and I cannot take my eyes off the footage from the latest Louis Vuitton show. I love the fact that Nicolas Ghesquière is taking a real life, wardrobe-based approach to his work for the house. It is this sense of luxury-meets-everyday that has made his collections stand out amongst the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Hedi Slimane. For Spring/Summer 2015, he produced a spectacular show that will no doubt go down as a highlight of the season.
