Ever obsessed with exploring Louis Vuitton’s roots in the spirit of travel, Nicolas Ghesquière presented his stunning Spring 2024 collection yesterday afternoon in Paris. The runway show set was a sight to behold in and of itself, designed to look like the inside of a hot air balloon. The ambiance welcomed guests with a warm summery light that was cast over the runway. Then, the first model hit the runway, and it was all eyes on Vuitton.
A stunning array of flowy maxi skirts made up the first handful of looks to hit the runway, some styled with bomber jackets and others paired with silk blouses. Part high-fashion but actually part wearable, an array of consumer-friendly bags were paired with the RTW. Overall, the collection was extraordinary, comprising all of Ghesquière’s strengths.
The Bags of Louis Vuitton Spring 2024
Looking at the bags further, models walked with an array of shapes that collectors will surely fall for. Oozing hints of quintessential Parisian elegance, the bags are deeply inspired by the Maison’s roots. Iconic shapes like the Dauphine and the Alma are given twists of newness in the form of slouchy, supple leathers, while other shapes are given a vertical north/south update. Mini bag lovers will rejoice in new Monogram pieces as well as metallic updates to graphic Damier. The newly relaunched GO-14 also appeared on the runway in classic colors with a bit of a twist, literally.
