Newly appointed Art Director Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton showcased his second collection for the label. The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2015 runway show took place in Monte Carlo, Monaco. This wasn’t only Nicolas’s first Cruise collection but also the first Cruise collection for Louis Vuitton. The cruise collection was an elaboration of his first, continuing where he left off from his Fall debut, shades of 70s inspired colours dominated the runway. Designed on a more playful note with deep pink mismatched with baby pink, attention orange with yellow and sea blue, bold prints and lace. Ghesquière still enjoying the fit and flared silhouette with A-lined suits, high waisted slightly flared trousers, leather jackets and knee length skirts. And who could miss the accessories, silver belts, gladiator sandals, the bucket bag and a new design on the Petite Malle.
The outfits were not the only adventurous creation that night, Models strut the runway on LED video screens built into the floor with moving images of flowing water over peebles and rocks. Some had pastel pink hair and others pastel blue. Nicolas’s view for Vuitton is opening up a new brave look for the label, something that is feels unfamiliar to the company. He’s bringing new excitement to the fashion world and making his mark on Louis Vuitton. His modernist eye is fresh and intriguing and I cannot wait to see what he does next.
