Nicolas Ghesquière’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection for Louis Vuitton closed the latest season of Paris Fashion Week.
Presented at the Samaritaine building, the showspace offered an elegant Art Deco backdrop. With both a live and virtual audience the show offered 360-degree angles of every look.
Ghesquière blended the boundaries of masculinity and femininity with the colourful eighties-inspired collection.
This collection was a coming together of many different elements: baggy trousers, minidresses, lapel suits oversized T-shirts – all belted at the waist and loosely highlighting an eighties silhouette.
Many of the pieces had a “genderless” appeal – oversized, wide-leg trousers, boyfriend jackets, vests, baggy jeans – this feeling of no-frills dressing is something we have all experienced over the past months.
The colour palette had a neutral base with pop-art prints and bolt accents adding splashes of colour.
A number of new bags debuted in the collection including the new bucket bag the new Carousel bag and a new Petite Malle in a bold new green that is a key colour for this season’s offering.
