Louis Vuitton Resort 2020
Louis Vuitton landed in New York, at Terminal 5 at the TWA Flight Center. Although the airport has not been open for a long time, you will certainly associate this characteristic building designed by Eero Saarinen. He played (the building, not Saarinen) in several famous film productions, including Steven Spielberg’s “Catch Me, If You Can Do It”. Now it has become a great addition to the collection of the French fashion house, which is a journey from the past to the future.
Nicolas Ghesquière combined elements from the 60’s and 80’s with his characteristic futuristic aesthetics. On the catwalk, models wore quilted pastel miniskirts and à la stewardess jackets, sporty foam blouses with shiny sequin frills, trousers with lamellas, jackets with New York skyscrapers, ultra-short sweatshirts with a scaled rounded shoulder line, leather trench shoes in pigeon grey with pink collars, knee-length trousers or tennis tunics with buttons.
There were also references to New York City – apart from the printed panorama of Manhattan, the suits, for example, brought to mind the costumes of Wall Street employees. The creative director of the French fashion house supplemented the whole with expressive make-up (red lips, heavily scratched cheekbones) and interesting accessories. Apart from cult bags with LV logo, the collection included oval pouches, clutch bags with beads, heavy lacing shoes, trunks with printed designs and metallic stripes.
