Louis Vuitton Fall 2016 RTW Collection Focuses on a Sport Theme

Fashion Trends

It’s the last day of Paris Fashion Week fall 2016 and, while everyone is already tying up the loose ends trying to understand what fashion will be all about next fall, some of the biggest brands are still frantically showcasing their collections. Almost bicentenary Louis Vuitton is among those brands that are waving the Paris Fashion Week goodbye with their catwalks, just unveiling its fall/winter 2016-17 ready-to-wear collection at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. Nicolas Ghesquière’s next season collection was showcased on a specifically blue-toned space set at the Bois de Boulogne Park in Paris, which helped evoke some cool autumnal/wintery feels indeed.

Louis Vuitton Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

Like Chanel’s front row yesterday, Louis Vuitton’s was also filled with influential personalities, such as Alicia Vikander, Selena Gomez, Léa Seydoux and Catherine Deneuve, among which Willy Smith’s son Jaden Smith surely stood out of the crowd (like his sister Willow, who has now officially become Chanel’s brand ambassador). Genderless fashion enthusiast Jaden Smith has been breaking the boundaries of fashion for a while now, and since earlier last year he has found in Louis Vuitton a great source of inspiration for experimenting with clothes.

And experimenting through fashion surely is one of Louis Vuitton’s and Ghesquière’s forte, as the French Maison has always embodied the symbol of ultimate innovation. For the Louis Vuitton fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection athleisure-inspired pieces got gracefully combined with graphic patterns and terrific tailoring skills, making it possible for the models’ bodies to be almost geometrically shaped.

Visible hems and prints resembling corsets and bras were the collection’s key details, taking the whole ‘inside-out’ trend to a brand new level. To reinforce the inside-out concept Ghesquière had fun playing with color-blocking motifs as well, among which red, green and blue colors were particularly celebrated. Such choice gave the overall collection a sort of superheroine vibes, as most of the proposals looked liked modern wearable versions of Marvel Comics’ costumes. On the other hand, the athleisure vibes got translated to t-shirt dresses, simple t-shirts with colored geometrical patterns, yoga pants in edgy leather and even a quirky hybrid that combined varsity jackets and mid-calf vests together.

As for the silhouettes, Ghesquière particularly enjoyed accentuating the hourglass figures, adorning most of his proposals with rounded dark-toned patches of fabrics at the waists. Peplum figures are of course to be contemplated here as well, as they became the sole protagonists once the show was drawing to a close. Other interesting figures included asymmetrical necklines, asymmetrical double-breasted zip-front jackets, asymmetrical frilled hems for almost any mermaid dress and, overall, anything asymmetrical in general. He then played with contrasts by alternating all these asymmetrical sharp-cut proposals with more relaxed nerdy sweaters and elegant mannish coats.

In the perfect Louis Vuitton tradition, Ghesquière took the time to add haute couture touches here and there, to be specifically seen in the exaggerated hats, fur and intricate glittery embellishments and, of course, in the accessory line, with the handbags and sporty shoes being just the icing on the cake. The collection’s finale paid homage to Maison Margiela’s iconic trompe l’oeil sequined frocks, which also gave the collection some vivid Nineties vibes. Thanks to Louis Vuitton, the upcoming fall season won’t be boring for sure!

Nicolas Ghesquière Unveils Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Fashion Trends

Louis Vuitton‘s pre-fall 2016 collection is futuristic, sporty, and sexy, which is just the way creative director Nicolas Ghesquière likes to keep things. He decided to use some of the best pieces from past collections that have actually come to be staples in the LV customer’s wardrobe, and all work to keep her feeling young and modern. When it comes to this, Ghesquière knows best, and when women wear his looks in the street it shows.

Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Color-blocked motocross pants don’t quite seem, in theory, that they should be a staple piece in a woman’s wardrobe, yet after Ghesquière put his signature on them, it seems they’d look good on anyone. It also wouldn’t be likely they would be so versatile, yet according to Louis Vuitton, they can be worn with anything from simple to elegant tops. Then again, there were many pieces that could fit right alongside the motocross theme in this line, and they needed to be paired with something to keep things fresh – but now that the pairing has been seen, it’ll be all over the streets to show who’s who when it comes to fashion followers.

You could also find looks like a zip-fronted minidress, which Ghesquière popularized back in fall 2014, that exuded fun youth, while still keeping things modern and progressive. Tossing back references to popular past trends from the label like this is a great thing for brand recognition. Seeing the zippered dress or the color-blocked pants on someone walking down the street just shows who has been shopping LV lately.

The apparel was extremely fashion-forward, but the accessories were exceptional on their own. The handbags were the most versatile part of the Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2016 line, as they didn’t have the same quirk or blatant futuristic vibe the apparel did. Bags big and small will likely make a huge splash when they hit the market, as many of them were much more sophisticated than the clothing in the collection.

Belts were used to alter the silhouettes of the garments, but the most striking and interesting accessory photographed with the looks was black gloves. They made everything on the models instantly more punky, and also more sexualized, in a dominatrix-esque way. There were so many different directions Ghesquière was trying to take the collection in, and the result was an eclecticism that also hints to steampunk.

Lea Seydoux Is the New Louis Vuitton Ambassador

Fashion Trends

All doors open for Bond girls! Especially if you’re Paris-born actress Lea Seydoux, who just became the official face of Louis Vuitton! The French fashion house that has been setting standards for luxury and high fashion, already has a record of getting the best and most popular actors and actresses as brand ambassadors. It’s obviously a very popular marketing move; the movie industry is so powerful that having a good reference in your next ad campaign will score you an additional few thousand fans (just add the movie/actor fans to your consumer base).

Lea Seydoux Is the New Louis Vuitton Ambassador

It also adds more story and uniqueness to the campaigns than standard photo shoots with models you see in most ad campaigns for different brands. Take Dior’s short films featuring another stunning French actress, Marion Cotillard; they are not just ads, they are inspiring stories that everyone who has a bit of imagination wants to follow.

And naturally this is not the first time the brand has made use of cinematography benefits. Louis Vuitton, which Seydoux considers to be “a strong symbol of French elegance,” already has made investments in attracting actors and actresses like Alicia Vikander, Michelle WIlliams, Jennifer Connelly, and Doona Bae. All of them are currently brand ambassadors for Louis Vuitton.

Seydoux’s first appearance in the new role as a brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton will be at the UNICEF Ball in Los Angeles on January 12, where she will accompany the brand’s artistic director of women’s collections, Nicolas Ghesquiere. Seydoux will be wearing a Louis Vuitton outfit, custom made especially for the event. An incredibly exclusive detail many women would kill for, and we can’t wait to see how designers at Louis Vuitton picture Seydoux.

With more international fame she has lately gained, the upcoming Louis Vuitton ad campaigns, where she’ll be featured, guarantee a career hike for the actress. Her image already set as an elegant French woman, a great actress and an icon of style, she’s already conquering men and women around the world.

We’ll see more of Seydoux during Louis Vuitton events, ad banners and maybe even lookbooks (who knows!). Just like most brand ambassador partnerships, this one will most probably last for two years.

As you might remember (and it’s really hard to forget), Seydoux played the new Bond girl in the latest Spectre movie. She has earned the most desirable Palme d’Or in 2013 for her role in “Blue is the Warmest Color.” Seydoux has also been featured in “Inglorious Basterds,” “Midnight in Paris,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” and “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.” We’ll also see her in Xavier Dolan’s upcoming film “It’s Just the End of the World.” That’s an impressive portfolio of films, and that portfolio just got much bigger with this partnership.

Thanks to her unique appearance and unbeatable charm, Seydoux has also been a part of many fashion ad campaigns for brands like Miu Miu, Prada and Rag & Bone. As she has been playing episodic roles in the mentioned movies, and the latest “Spectre” movie was one of the best leading roles she has done, we feel this fashion collaboration will receive more exposure than any other ad campaign she has done before. That’s the rules of the game, you can go hard, or you can go home! At the moment Seydoux is going go anywhere but home.
