In a futuristic show scenography, set aside the Fondation Louis Vuitton, dynamic heroines graced the Louis Vuitton Fall 2016 catwalk between mirror-columns, inspired from French artist Justin Morin’s artwork «Melted Bones».

The enigmatic location for the Fall 2016 Fashion Show comprised a dome, a cube and a pyramid structure. The show universe was filled with tensions between seemingly opposing elements – future and retro, eternal and ephemeral, monument and ruin. The bespoke venue was filled with 57 silver pillars made from shattered mirrors and broken colonnades keeling over with concrete spilling out. A blue aquatic mood was offset by crisp white neon lighting and a constantly changing and evolving environment that reflected the story of the collection as it unfolded.

For the Louis Vuitton Fall 2016 collection, Nicolas Ghesquière accomplishes a captivating adventure through both time and the heart of the Maison, unearthing the glorious vestiges of a visionary trunk-maker and recasting yesterday’s creations for today’s tastes.

He defines a heroine who is always on the move, whose elegance springs from her dynamism. He forges heritage to better illustrate the present, in clothing that combines irrefutable classicism with the athletic vitality of a true explorer.

The details are what make Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquiere’s wardrobe immediately idenfiable: leather jackets, fluid sensual dresses in scarf prints, mohair sweaters, zip-front molded-hip jackets, gigantic pendant earrings, new bags, etc.

Nicolas Ghesquière’s guests share their personal impression of the show and the signature details. View Léa Seydoux, Alicia Vikander, Liu Wen, Jennifer Connelly, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Cecilia So, Bae Doona and Natasha Liu Bordizzo among others.
