A closer look at Nicolas Ghesquière's Fall-Winter 2019 Collection presented at the Louvre in Paris.
The vibrant “sartorial melting pot” that has emerged in the area surrounding the Centre Pompidou in Paris was Nicolas Ghesquière’s primary inspiration for his Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter Collection. Through the combination of graphic juxtapositions, the clashing of cultural references, and the multiplicity of expressions, the Artistic Director follows in the footsteps of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, the museum’s architects, by deliberately inviting lively debate.
Notable details include colourful re-interpretations of Louis Vuitton signatures such as with the Mini Luggage BB bag, as well as the application of the classic Monogram to novel forms as is the case with the playful Art Folder. Leather caps and flat square belt buckles on many of the models contribute to the overall celebration of the stylistic eclecticism of the decades that have passed since the Centre Pompidou’s founding in 1977.Fashion Show Nicolas Ghesquière Fall-Winter
See highlights of the Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2019 Show that took place at the Louvre in Paris.
The Centre Pompidou Museum in Paris is an emblematic example of generational architecture, representing a captivating dialogue between a daring construction and a historic neighbourhood. Since its inauguration in 1977, it deliberately invited debate, a debate which evolved with the decades that followed. The recreation of this monument to modernity for Nicolas Ghesquière's Fall-Winter 2019 Show pays homage to the clash of the old with the now, a signature preoccupation of Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director.
The Collection that was presented against this backdrop speaks to a vision of fashion that is sure of its potential and knows with conviction how to proceed. The enthusiasm of youth creates a foundation of stylistic certainty. Nicolas Ghesquière described the Centre Pompidou and surrounding area as “a fascinating incubator of a neighbourhood. An incredible mélange, converging in the epicentre. The cliques, the styles, the life… I love that impression of a sartorial melting pot. Today, I’ve transposed it at Louis Vuitton: a House of multiple expressions."Fashion Show Nicolas Ghesquière Fall-Winter
