Louis Vuitton show Fall/Winter 2014 collection with a 60’s and 70’s theme…

Louis Vuitton

The Louis Vuitton fashion show took place on March 5, 2014 during Paris Fashion Week.
The new Louis Vuitton was much awaited since the changing of hands from Marc Jacobs to Nicolas Ghesquiere. Since his departure from Balenciaga, the beloved, respected, and copied Ghesquiere’s presence at Louis Vuitton has been much awaited. The show had a 60’s and 70’s theme with 21st century workmanship. Large collars, a-line shapes, big belts, and rich brown hues encapsulated the collection, taking you to another time, but still remaining modern. A mixture of textures, a technique Ghesquiere has been known for since his Balenciaga days, created some stand out pieces such as leather and tweed dresses, and patent teamed with the matte of a toll neck jumper. An a-line cut and a thigh-high hem was the collection’s predominant silhouette. The most talked about item in the collection was surprisingly the item that rested on the shoulder of some of the models, the new Petite Malle Bag, a miniature Louis Vuitton trunk. The now sought after bag, though it does not have the most room, offers the straight off the runway chic that every girl loves. Ghesquiere’s understated start at Louis Vuitton did not lack the intensity to wow and appease the audience that has been awaiting his return. What was once considered old, is now new again as the cycle of fashion continues.
