Since it’s Resort Week, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about the latest cruise collections for 2017. Well, Louis Vuitton was one not to miss.
It took place in none of other than the home of this year’s Summer Olympics, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Just by that note, you’re probably picturing a beach location or some crowded city. Think again. This show was much more extravagant.
The modern design of its stage, the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum, was the perfect backdrop for this eclectic collection. Waterfront views, an expansive red carpet-lined catwalk and the almost space-aged architecture all set the breathtaking scene. The New York Times even noted that some guests stayed after the show to watch the sunset; the view was that good!
But, of course, I’m sure you want to know more about the clothes.
Everything from tailored jackets with military buttons to mini flap bags, covered t-strap flats, cutout ruffled crop tops, water sport-inspired dresses and 1980s-worthy jackets popped up in Nicolas Ghesquière’s designs.
In an interview with Vogue Runway Director, Nicole Phelps, the designer mentioned bringing Paris to Rio and added, “I think what defines our time is that women want to look sophisticated and they want casual sports clothes—those are the two big obsessions.”
These ideals definitely shone through in his work. Whether they were dressed in a black mini dress with a red-orange jacket, tailored black coat or scuba-worthy frock, every model captured my attention.
