Femininity is at the heart of the matter and Louis Vuitton joins the conversation by looking at it through emphasis, glorifying its complexity, magnifying it, putting it in the spotlight. The Louis Vuitton Spring 2023 RTW collection zooms in on the details, highlights them, gives them their due.
A lock, a label, a clasp, a corner piece on a trunk, a buckle, a zip. These are the custodians of a story that endures. They, too, are the essence of the subject, blossoming at the very heart of a pulsating “monster-flower” created by the artist Philippe Parreno, the guest designer for the show’s scenography.
It’s a stylistic exercise that re-evaluates the proportions of clothing and its adjuncts, one in which the codes of femininity unsettle scale. The infinitely large and the infinitely small come together on silhouettes, inviting a second look.
Invited to see Nicolas Ghesquière unveil his Spring-Summer 2023 Women’s Collection at the Louvre, the celebrities share their impressions after the show.
