TIMELESS IS NOW!
Paris: Nicolas Ghesquiere’s first collection for Louis Vuitton was full of “perennial” pieces. The show notes read, “This familiar wardrobe appeals to the collection unconscious, stirring our affective memory.” The silhouette was a slight A-line, a little girly, with a sportswear appeal.
