Even if all glamour galore these past days happened in Cannes during the international film festival, few days ago Monaco took a title of a fashion-Mecca of the day. Louis Vuitton by Nicolas Ghesquière presented there the Resort 2015 collection. The front row included many of Nicolas friends/admirers, like Charlotte Gainsbourg, Ziyi Zhang, Jennifer Connely, etc. Many of them already carried the new LV pouch, “Le Petite Malle”.
The curtains in a see-through tent of the Place du Palais closed and moving images of the water flowing over rocks, made by the artist Ange Leccia, filled the runway. “It's Time to Wake Up” by La Femme started to play and all three hundred and fifty guests impatiently and inquisitively to see the first look to came out. Ghesquière continues to build “a wardrobe” for his LV woman, but he made it richer, with more playful vibe, compared to the F/W 2014/2015 collection. Collage-like looks included: embroidering laces, furs, cut-outs, knee-length skirts, leather jackets paired with jersey dresses, flaring trousers, sheer silk knits, printed pantsuits, metallic and bold colors to pop the black base. Yes the new LV woman with a revisited 70´s wardrobe likes to have fun and to feel free with her bare legs most of the time. It´s hard to not to. There are new shoes to show; gladiator sandal-boots that ends toward the knees. At the end I cannot forget to mention Le Petite Malle bag in gold with silver fringes or the red/white Twist. The first became already iconic.
