Nicolas Ghesquière took Louis Vuitton to streetwhere, where it's a beautiful chaotic mess of patterns, colors and shapes. Who knew that leopard print blouse goes with a bold black and yellow checkered skirt? But at Louis Vuitton, it all works. As if mixed prints weren't enough, colors were splattered everywhere- from trousers, geometric clutches, lace-up boots to even oversized red leather earrings. There were 80's-inspired broad shoulders, ruffle tops, high-waisted pants and denim jumpsuit. All were topped with bold accessories like waist belts with lips, checkered top handle bags, sleek leather hats and oversized LV monogram tote.
Best known for its iconic LV Monogram print, Louis Vuitton began in the luggage business, but has quickly expanded its product range to bags, clothing and accessories. Recently, the brand has been collaborating with many artists to create unique, over-the-top pieces that have been growing in popularity among younger generations and Chinese fans. On top of its luggages, Louis Vuitton has seen an increase in demand in other leather products such as handbags and wallets for its eye to quality and detail. Current Artistic Director of Women's collections at Louis Vuitton is Nicolas Ghesquière, who had previously been at Balenciaga. Carrying his edgy tastes from Balenciaga while incorporating Louis Vuitton's history in pattern-making and quality leather items, he has created a collection after collection that is an exquisite balance of sophistication and experimentation.
