The journey starts here! The much-anticipated Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2015 collection has just been unveiled at Paris Fashion Week, impressing, inspiring and highly impacting everyone present with the special futuristic atmosphere created on the runway. In the iconic Louis Vuitton Foundation the entire catwalk was painted in black and as the show began huge 3D screens showed models speaking to the guests and getting them ready to explore the beauty to “travel to any part of the universe without moving”. The start was promising and the entire show proved to be highly spectacular, bringing Nicolas Ghesquière’s signature avant-garde style philosophy spiced up with Vuitton’s elegance and sophistication. While his debut collection for Vuitton was more neutral and classic, this one did demonstrate Ghesquière’s love for complex style mishmashes and a strong fashion attitude.
The Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2015 collection sent out clothes blending the lovely ‘70s retro vibes with futuristic motifs, and mixing so many ideas, textures and fabrics, which still looked harmonious and flawless with each other. We saw there lots of leather, chiffon, see-through materials, denim, lace, silk, cotton knits, velvet and shiny fabrics, which looked just ideal in the slightly saturated color palette, bringing blacks, whites, bordeaux, red, dark greens, blues and grays. Especially striking was the play with small details, including the flirty frills, feathery motifs, zips and leather ribbons attached to the collars of the playful dresses.
The show also presented eye-feasting bold prints and patterns, like the bright florals, wild animal motifs or the spectacular modern art resembling patterns, featuring cosmetic products, eyelash curlers, Louis Vuitton tiny box bag prints, cars and salt shakers, which together looked so clashing, yet totally cool and pretty. These futuristic print designs decorated the little white dress with a black belt-like detail on the waist and the creative lace short sleeves, as well as the mini white skirt in the same style as the dress, coming matched with a black lace top with short sleeves.
There were lots of little dresses, which mixed various fabrics and textures and looked so elaborate and chic. Some came with zip-up designs and used straight forms using leather and other stiff materials, while other looked more breezy and flowing, mixing lots of ruffles and frills and combining lace with chiffon. Still in both the options presented, the models looked serious and a bit tough, embracing the overall strict and futuristic feel of the collection.
Other than that, we saw also lots of sharp mini skirts matched with elegant short-sleeved tops, tough denim pants and knee-length shorts, classy coats, blazers and jackets in various hues and patterns, overwhelmingly printed separates, an elegant black below-the-knee skirt with high slits up on the front and the back parts, knitted slim sweaters and two pairs of elegant black tailored pants cut at the ankle level and decorated with knee leather accessories that carried both sporty and futuristic motifs. What’s important, all the designs demonstrated managed to convey the signature Louis Vuitton style, still looking up-to-date, stylish and cool.
Surely, the Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2015 collection also brought some awe-inspiring leather accessories, staying true to Vuitton’s roots. We saw iconic Louis Vuitton handbags in various sizes, forms and colors to meet the demands of every Vuitton addict, as well as leather boots that looked no less modern and cool.
Like the start, the development and the finale of the Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2015 collection show were awesome too, and so was every single item presented there. We just can’t wait to get hands on these goodies, getting our dose of Vuitton luxury and surviving until the next show-stopping collection by Nicolas Ghesquière!
