  • WOMEN'S SPRING-SUMMER 2019 SHOW: DETAILS

    A closer look at the new collection

    Shortly after nightfall on Tuesday October 2nd, in the heart of the Louvre Palace in Paris, a brightly illuminated promenade sets the stage for the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2019 Show. This season, Nicolas Ghesquière embarked on an adventure of pure sartorial exploration, transporting us to a totally new, imagined world. 

    Classicism counterbalances exotic locales; the refinement of savoir-faire contrasts with the hardiness of nomadic equipment. The clothes’ reliefs create panoramas unto themselves; the confrontation of colours and motifs recount a tale of adventure. This absolute voyager conveys a world she has made her own. The Louis Vuitton House crosses and blends territories, creating an illusion of ideal geography.

    Futuristic graphics contrasted with colourful floral prints and classic Monogram contribute to a multi-layered allure. The Maison's savoir-faire was evident in the details such as precise tailoring, sequin-embroidered mesh, and exaggerated sleeve constructions. Reinterpretations of Louis Vuitton luggage abounded, including top handled, suitcase-inspired handbags and exotic-skinned Petite Malles.

  • WOMEN'S SPRING-SUMMER 2019 SHOW: THE COUR CARRÉE

    Revisiting to the Cour Carrée of the Louvre, where Louis Vuitton's Spring-Summer 2019 runway show was held on October 3rd, 2018 (Hong Kong time).

    The Renaissance façades of the Cour Carrée, one of the courtyards of the Louvre Palace, were progressively built in parallel with the evolution of the rest of the Palace until the 17th century. The buildings form a square of approximately 160 meters in length. Hence the name “carré”, meaning "square" in French.

    The Cour Carrée is also situated next to the historical axis of Paris, known as the Voie Royale ("triumphal way"). This axis is a straight line of monuments and thoroughfares that extends from the equestrian statue of Louis XIV next to Ieoh Ming Pei’s pyramid all the way to the Grande Arche of La Défense, passing through the Tuileries Gardens, the obelisk of the Place de la Concorde, the Champs Élysées, and the Arc de Triomphe on the Place de l'Étoile .

  • WOMEN'S SPRING-SUMMER 2019 SHOW: INSPIRATION

    Inventing a new landscape for the upcoming Women's Spring-Summer 2019 Collection

    A passion for travel is inherent to the Louis Vuitton House, but shall the creation of one’s own world even surpass physical voyages? The starting point of the new Women's Collection by Nicolas Ghesquière is the idea of mirages, fantastical shores that become precious memories for every traveller. Mirage, from the Latin “mirare”, means ‘seeing with astonishment’, perhaps an apt description of fashion's essential mission.

    Watch the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2019 Show on Wednesday, October 3rd at 2 am Hong Kong time, live on louisvuitton.com or Instagram.
