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.
Nicolas Ghesquière looked to the past and future for his 80's-inspired, sci-fi collection. Set in a magnificent space-age tube of a set at the Louvre, Louis Vuitton's 2019 Spring/Summer show was a mixture of future with art and history. The clothes also reflected his fashion inspiration with their retro balloon sleeves on track jackets, abstract use of bright Memphis Group prints and white molded rubber outerwear.

Nicolas Ghesquière looked to the past and future for his 80's-inspired, sci-fi collection. Set in a magnificent space-age tube of a set at the Louvre, Louis Vuitton's 2019 Spring/Summer show was a mixture of future with art and history. The clothes also reflected his fashion inspiration with their retro balloon sleeves on track jackets, abstract use of bright Memphis Group prints and white molded rubber outerwear. This modern approach extended over to dresses, which were sculptural, sequined show-stoppers. The French designer also emphasized his support for empowering of women by incorporating menswear type pieces, including an oversized tee, tailored skinny trousers and striped blazer. For this season, bags were fairly small but packed a punch with patterned Petite Malles and unique egg-like shapes.
Buzzing the world with "#notgoinganywhere", meaning he will continue as the artistic director of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière returned to his roots for inspiration for the 2019 Cruise Collection. Eccentricity was key for this collection in collaboration with Vogue creative director Grace Coddington, producing accessories with Coddington's sketches of her cats and Ghesquiere's beloved dogs. The bold twist on the classic monogram print added a flair of playfulness to the structured and tailored apparel pieces, which is a signature style of the designer....

The bold twist on the classic monogram print added a flair of playfulness to the structured and tailored apparel pieces, which is a signature style of the designer. sequined dress paired with colorful feather top, ultra-short shorts with oversized jacket and acid-wash denim jacket with geometric patterns were among the things that hit the runway. The shoes in this Resort show were various renditions of Archlight sneakers that were released in 2018. Thigh-high black leather boots stole the spotlight, while brown ankle-length boots and high-top lace-ups were also interesting additions to the popular line.
In a true Louis Vuitton fashion, this autumn/winter was placed physically in a 1850s architecture built for Napoleon III, but had Nicolas Ghesquière's modern space touch in the atmosphere. This unlikely combination extended over to the pieces, with cropped jackets dressed in medallions that are reminiscent of historical royal uniforms, paired with spacesuit-like puffy peplum top. It's a bizarre balance that somehow always works for Louis Vuitton. There were shirt dresses with dramatic line detail across the shoulders, or pleated evening dresses cinched in at waist by blue and brown corsets, or even a sparkly sweater paired with spaghetti strap peplum top.
"Anachronism" - LV Designer Nicolas Ghesquière described his spring/summer collection held at the Louvre's Pavillon de l’Horloge. Taking his guests through a history lesson with the location and the collection, Ghesquière brought back the brocade frocks adored by the royalty in 18th century but combining the with silky athletic shorts. This unexpected combination is what Ghesquière has done since his Balenciaga days: reinventing past costume pieces as modern everyday items. His athletic twists didn't stop there; almost every look was paired with the controversial clunky sneakers. Sold out worldwide, the Archlight footwear definitely kickstarted the "Ugly Dad Sneakers" trend.

Louis Vuitton's eye for detail and history of quality leather items extend over to its line of wallets. From compact card cases to monogram-donning long wallets, there is a perfect pattern and model for everyone.
French fashion house Louis Vuitton began designing lightweight, flat-bottomed trunks in Paris (1854), and today represents a billion-dollar market of high-end luxury leather goods, RTW, accessories and more. In an effort to fend off continuous counterfeiting, Louis Vuitton changed the trunk’s pattern many times. But it was in 1896 that his son, Georges Vuitton, designed the brand’s trademark LV Monogram Canvas––a combination of graphic L’s and V’s, flowers, and quatrefoils––which grew to become internationally synonymous with luxury. The repetition of this monogram evokes a comforting familiarity and makes the brand's collaborations (e.g., with artists Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami, Rei Kawakubo, Christian Louboutin, Cindy Sherman, Marc Newson, Karl Lagerfeld, Frank Gehry...) which disrupt this consistency, even more rare and special pieces of design.
