On the first day of the week, next to the Seine river, in the grounds of the ancient Musée d’Orsay building, the shutter sound was bustling. Global stars and fashionistas gathered to “listen” to Nicolas Ghesquière’s “eye-catching” answer to the question: “What is French?”
Louis Vuitton autumn – winter 2023: simple “Parisian chic” in the magnificent capital
The quiet and dark colors of the stage contrast perfectly with the gold-plated walls of the ballroom, bringing the autumn-winter season of Phu Lang Sa to mid-March. On a day like any other, Parisian girls are striding down the street. surrounded by stone, surrounded by the rhythm of everyday life with the sound of the radio, the honking of car horns, and the flashing of camera flashes. Working with artisans Philippe Parreno, James Chinlund and Nicolas Becker, Louis Vuitton set the perfect mood to present the concept of modern French style: effortless fashion and “for everyone. ”
The inspiration for the BST came from the luxury fashion house’s sense of responsibility to preserve the French roots when Nicolas Ghesquière “reigned” for 10 years in the creative director’s chair. With the brand’s core values in mind, designers no longer need to experiment with a unique surreal theme. He returned Louis Vuitton to a simple form, close to Parisian street fashion but no less high-end.
In the latest works, we see the classic silhouette through the modern accent rhythm. Perhaps that is also the reason behind the choice of location at the Musée d’Orsay – which is decorated by the age-old Beaux-Arts architecture combining the Baroque and the Renaissance, expressed in modern materials. like metal and glass.
“Parisian Chic” as narrated by Louis Vuitton begins with the foundational ideas: blazer, cap, and midi skirt in oversized silhouettes and neutrals. Unique creativity weaves in new cuts and “socks and socks” to deceive the eye. In contrast to the impressive shoulder bridge, the slim belt is a reliable design of the fashion house to encapsulate the autumn girl’s shape.
Nicolas Ghesquière’s high-class technique is only revealed when observed at close range: embossed leather jacket “camouflage” under woolen material, the plaid pattern on white pants is done entirely by hand. , spider web dresses use cannetille yarn and metal instead of thread to achieve the 3D effect.
Looking for the “French Girl” quality associated with everyday life, the creative director gained wide-ranging media influence. The Fall-Winter 2023 collection is much more restrained than the exaggerated designs of the previous season, but based on the positive response that the show has received, simplicity is perhaps the new strength in Nicolas Ghesquière’s design.
