At the Louis Vuitton Foundation, the audience sat down beneath screens above their seats. Opposite and all around were yet more screens. What followed was an innovative and successful experiment: the video (a man seen from behind walking through an apartment, equipped with an augmented reality tool) gives life to the virtual, technological and futuristic vibe of the collection. It brings about the world where Nicolas Ghesquière’s women walk. While contemporary dance has combined video and bodily movement for years, fashion rarely goes there. It took all of Nicolas Ghesquière’s passion to experiment with technology and science fiction, in short everything that takes a mankind towards the future instead of feeding his conservatism, searching for a perfect material balance. 

 

The world of video games, namely Minecraft, was the starting point for this show as Nicolas Ghesquière fully revived his ability to provoke a thrill - much to the delight of his fans, devoted since his days of Balenciaga. The collection was a conversation between punk and romance, avant-gardism and the house of the Monogram's savoir-faire. Long floral dresses are sharp and tough, without sleeves, embroidered in metal. Black, the symbol of Parisian chic, bourgeois or idle, comes alive and constantly evolves: fishnet, tank tops, embroidered skirts and sleeveless tops, conjugate an ultra-modern and edgy style in noble fabrics. A recurring theme this season with several designers is the punk jacket covered with inscriptions, and this is its most beautiful incarnation: leather coats delicately painted and partially covered with the Monogram.
