The French designer Nicolas Ghesquière pays homage to Louis Vuitton’s hardware accents, where femininity is combined in a single silhouette made up of various proportions.
Never once has Nicolas Ghesquière been hesitant to leap. Ghesquière’s trajectory has been striving for the best, from reviving Louis Vuitton’s appearance to the Belle Époque, and his success has not gone unnoticed.
Ghesquière brought a spectacle to the Louvre’s core during the Maison’s Spring/Summer 2023 show. The spectacular design was conceptualised by producer James Chinlund and internationally renowned French artist Philippe Parent, known for his conceptual works and ambitious sculptures and installations. The stunning design is a “monster flower” with vividly red, multi-layered petals and gold stamen that rise up into the Parisian sky.
The futuristic, flamboyant, and electric performance adhered to Maison’s vision while highlighting femininity. In the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2023 collection, the endlessly vast and infinitely small come together in a single form, reevaluating the proportions of clothing. The trend this season was large straps, giant straps, an oversized Louis Vuitton tag bag, and oversized straps in contrast to miniaturised bags.
The collection zooms in on the house’s codes, such as padlocks, buckles, zippers, rivets, and more, giving homage to the French luxury House’s immaculate hardware features. This is where Ghesquière highlighted Maison’s DNA.
