Unique waved quilting and vibrant-hued leather come together as a fresh range of Louis Vuitton city bags and accessories

    As is usually the case with Louis Vuitton, the origin of the Louis Vuitton New Wave collection can actually be traced to the past: specifically, a trunk from the archives that contained 12 pairs of shoes and featured multi-colored undulating stripes atop the classic monogram toile. Of course, the name New Wave also conjures up the music genre birthed more than 40 years ago, which still today epitomizes a disruptive attitude, distinctive fashion trends and all-around cool.

    This combined influence of heritage and youthful edge has inspired a new series that embodies currency and innovation. Here, supple calf leather has been quilted as a unique wave motif that defines the silhouettes of the three main styles: The Chain bag, Chain tote. Fashion-focused yet widely versatile, the collection will be permanently available in chic black and strong scarlet complemented by seasonal hues, which currently include Smoothie Pink, Malibu Green and Show White. Each style boasts an LV metallic closure in keeping with the latest lettering that appears elsewhere. Just as this Louis Vuitton logo is obvious now, the waved quilting is poised to become a House hallmark – a symbol of the dynamic rhythms that constantly move us forward.

    Ready to Wear Epi leather Shoes

    The Women’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton presents elegant eclecticism and thoughtful craftsmanship.

    In the new video that accompanies the Women’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection, key looks and accessories come through with a sense of individuality and reinforce the strength of inspired design. Nicolas Ghesquière developed the ready-to-wear with an eye oriented towards contemporary savoir-faire, such that a bustier embroidered by hand using a crochet technique gives off metallic lustre, while a tweed jacket hand-stitched with chain embroidery elevates a traditional pattern with extra shine. Colour-blocked dresses and tops boast inlays of silk and jersey that reinforce the collection’s contrasting attitudes of elegance and sport style. The Headline shoes combine craftsmanship and artistic flourish: hand-painted ostrich leather, a heel enveloped in python, and a metal-and-leather accessory placed by hand comprise this striking design. These are just a few glimpses into the array of detailing that makes up the collection. Each new statement on each girl is the sum of myriad well-considered parts.
