Runway Report: Louis Vuitton SS17

Futurism continued to rule the runways this week in Paris.  Nicolas Ghesquière’s sci-fi heroine at Louis Vuitton brought to the surface a conspicuous sense of transformation, which seemed very appropriate for the scene and location of the presentation – the new, underdone and incomplete Louis Vuitton superstore in Place Vendome.

The collection was filled with angular cuts, hip slung dresses, interesting but familiar checked prints with dots, and high sheen fabrics with an ultramodern feel.  There were a few gowns with crystal embroidery, covered in shiny dust – feminine, but with a warrior advantage. The shoulders were slightly pronounced and reminiscent of the 80s, yet there was a 40s sway in addition to the 60s pattern clusters that together defined a whole era of fashion.
