Meet Nicolas Ghesquière’s slinky new sci-fi girl for Louis Vuitton SS17
Breaking fashion news: Nicolas Ghesquière has given his sci-fi Louis Vuitton girl a soft-focus makeover. OK, it might not exactly be Trump-level on the controversy scale, but in fashion terms it’s pretty big...
The Louis Vuitton SS17 catwalk show might be one of Paris Fashion Week’s biggest talking points this season: When Nicolas Ghesquière hit the iconic French house three years ago, his new vision for Vuitton was retina-searing – forcing the invention of a whole new buzzword (hello, ‘retrofuturistic’) to describe his fierce mix of retro silhouettes with robo-warrior elements. His punky girl, personified by pink-haired model Fernanda Ly, looked like she’d been beamed down from some kind of fashion planet of the future.
For the last few seasons, the show has been staged at the spaceship-like Fondation Louis Vuitton, designed by Frank Gehry, on the outskirts of Paris. Instead, today’s collection was unveiled in the Place Vendôme, one of the most elegant spots in the heart of the city. The venue? The new, not-yet-finished Vuitton flagship – brands showing in their own building sites is clearly a thing this season (see the Saint Laurent SS17 show last week for further proof).
Last spring, his inspiration was drawn from Japanese manga, video games and the sci-fi classic,Tron. Ghesquière might have made leather, in particular the motocross jacket, a Vuitton signature, but he has got form when it comes toflou– it’s just that his silk handkerchief dresses of seasons past have been in graphic chain print and teamed with tough tractor-soled boots.
This collection had echoes of Ghesquière’s beloved sci-fi and a strong 80s flavour, but it was soft, grown-up and chic – languid draped metallic dresses in (shock) long lengths, sharp as a tack tailoring and – of course – a standout jacket or two.
Here are some of our favourite things from the show…
1. Asymmetric draping
Square-shouldered, long sleeved and flowing sinuously across the body, dresses played a clever game of conceal and reveal – some had one sleeve, or tiny slivers cut away to expose a flash of hip or collarbone.
