On October 5th at Louvre’s Passage Richelieu what Nicolas Ghesquière staged revealed a desire for transmission. Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2022 collection is an invitation to le grand bal of Time. The Creative Director is notably a master of time collisions as well as references and eras merge and once again he showed us that time is of no consequence. It dissolves functions and codes. It unites wardrobes.
As day becomes night, the humble uniform gets a 19th century style sumptuous twist and laced boots get the wrestling footwear vibe. Couture-like aspects and rigorous tailoring blend with contemporary fabrics such as denim which certainly wasn’t part of the 1800 vocabulary and yet finds perfect synergy with Ghesquière’s line up . Throughout the years the experience of dressing turned out to be an open and ongoing discourse which not only tells us about the past times but truthfully reflect where are are today constantly proving the transformative creative fusion of generations.
