On the final day of fashion month it was, yet again, raining cats and dogs. As we made our way to the Louis Vuitton show it turned out it wasn’t just a lot of water outside, the show venue was also set up to be an underwater world, an arc of Noah almost, situated near the Bois de Boulogne. A number of 57 large columns decorated by broken mirrors placed all over the runway in odd angles created a mesmerizing backdrop to a sporty and streetwise collection. By intermixing ladylike silky design with thick leather pieces (a slip dresses, a silky white one worn with a black harness stood out) Nicolas Ghesquière brought together the feminine and masculine, the soft and the tough. 7/8 skinny leather pants in shiny red and black really were a ‘thing’ in this fall collection. As were the heritage scarf prints and the mohair swearers with racing stripes on the sleeves. There were cropped coats, bare bellies, remarkable zip details, knitted tube dresses, animal print bags, extra long gloves and enormous fur hat pieces. All looks were topped off by the toughest of boots as well as some statement burgundy lips (again, the contrast). Now picture that reflected in those hundreds of mirror pieces and you’ve got yourself an optimistic, young, colourful and worthy closing of Paris Fashion Week. Selena Gomez, Jaden Smith (brand new face of the brand) and Kris Jenner, who stuck around in the city of lights, really witnessed some spectacle. Like they sa; out with a bang.
