Earlier this week, Louis Vuitton presented its Spring 2023 collection, and it was a collection of epic proportions — literally. Nicolas Ghesquiere continues to explore the rich history and brand DNA of Louis Vuitton, and this season, he pays homage to its storied background in a larger-than-life way.

Show notes for the collection also explore femininity, which is emphasized and magnified through grand proportions. With the collection’s ready-to-wear, these themes are expressed through exaggerated zipper pulls and grandiose belt buckles showcased on dresses and tops.

This so-called “stylistic exercise” re-evaluates the traditional way in which we look at clothes, forcing the wearer (and the viewer) to look twice. As for the bags, they too, zoom in on the details, highlighting small but integral parts of House DNA. Locks, labels, monograms, and more are blown up, creating carryalls that tell a story (and make a statement).

Interesting novelty. Fun to look at. Not so much fun to carry — very impractical…. and like the bags, the price will be just as disproportionately HUGE !!

Honestly, kinda brilliant. The key pouch is insane. The luggage tag, etc… Like…sincerely amazed that this hasn’t been done before. If I legit had the money to burn, I’d buy a piece for home decor.

Omg! I too have thought if I had the funds I’d buy an LV for home decor! Frame it with lights behind the beautiful double sided glass and it would be my centerpiece. Lol. Dreaming is deliciously fun!

Some of these are fun and really cute.

I’m scared even thinking about how much these would cost.

This was—by far—my favorite NG runway show. So creative and fun!!! The bags are all stunning. The giant pochette clés is hilarious but also cool AF. And can we talk about the Asnières house? A freaking masterpiece.

Ironically I just purchased a Sac Polochon 70 from 1996. I was worried it would be too big. I guess I’m ahead of the curve 🤣

I love a good frame bag! There’s something about the ladylike nature of it, but throw in some nice hardware and details to edge it out. The woven one is really cool. I also love all of the exaggerations. It would be fun to tote around a giant luggage tag or cles for a day.

The woven frame bag is very reminiscent of the Bottega New York bag they showed the year they renovated their New York City store.
