As Louis Vuitton presented its Spring/Summer 2022 collection presentation at The Louvre the show was shockingly disrupted by Climate Change protestors with security guards forced to remove them from the runway.
Men and women carrying signs with remarks such as “Overconsumption = Extinction” managed to make their way onto the runway to share their views, but, while the points in some ways should be taken seriously, the show must go on.
The collection itself which was described as “le grand bal of time” in the show notes, celebrates various decades throughout the last 200 years and echoed the travel heritage of the company which celebrates 200 years since its founder Louis Vuitton was born, this year.
With a strong focus on eighties punk, Nicolas Ghesquière’s designs were a perfect mismatch of old meets new which a strong focus on the expressive experience of dressing and how its functions and codes combine to make something completely unique and beautiful.
The setting for the presentation was decked out with dozens of antique chandeliers which had been collected over a number of months, setting the mood for this grand celebration of fashion.
