Grown up ’70s and a mix of the future at Vuitton

Paris: For Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière continued to build on the ideas he put forward for his Fall debut collection, and consequently, this Spring/Summer 2015 became more rounded, grown up and cohesive. The ‘show’ opened with a group of beautifully executed little dresses, sweet tops and jackets, crocheted with finite details and played back with abbreviated jackets made up of strips of leather. Complementing these were the flirty girly interpretations worn with fabulous heeled boots. The plush velvet pants became pantsuits with cropped jackets in ‘renaissance’ prints. However, it was the accessories that lauded the collection, each one carefully monogrammed with the LV. Twiggy would have a sweet sense of deja-vu with this precise collection. – Lizzy Bowring
