Shop the interactive Louis Vuitton Spring 2021 RTW runway show film as Nicolas Ghesquière steps into a territory where gender is erased and creative possibilities are endless.
The collection finds expression in a landscape that is tenuous and vast, but also neutral: giving it color, forging its character, inciting radicality, giving it personality. The collection expresses this in-between zone through pieces that are as feminine as they are masculine: dresses are shaped like exaggerated t-shirts, and classic overcoats are finished like oversized sweaters.
A selection of bags from the collection includes entirely new designs as well as reinterpretations of iconic models. Bags take on the season’s signature chameleon green while shoes ranged from puffy heels to sporty derbies. On some styles, prints are made up of words that are like positive injunctions, making an energetic and bold stand.
Under the glass roof of the Samaritaine building, the runway was set against the historic monument’s Art Deco architecture and Art Nouveau frescoes. Interspersed throughout the set were large swaths of the color green, serving as chroma key screens for scenes from Wim Wenders’ film “Wings of Desire” to be digitally layered in for virtual audiences.
