As per usual, LV was the last one who presented its collection in Paris, and this time, they chose no smaller place, than the Louvre itself. Having the newest fashion collection, one kind of modern art among the biggest artist is a nice move. I mean, how cool is that?
Sadly, I cannot say the same about the collection itself. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad, moreover there are really nice elements here, but I don’t know, I’m a bit confused. No, actually I’m totally confused, because even though I love Nicolas Ghesquière’s work and I really adore the heritage and craftsmanship at LV, these two don’t seem a match made in heaven.
As I said before, Gvasalia was a hit for Balenciaga, nowadays everything is about him and they work so well together. So it did Ghesquière a few years ago, so I assume he hasn’t found his place in the fashion house yet, or a more simple explanation is; I’m not an LV girl at all (I didn’t really like it under Marc Jacobs’s lead either, although I’m still crazy for that heavily overpriced Sofia Coppola bag). But it’s such a shame, it seems they have everything for taking over the world, and there was hope at the last S/S collection, that one was a pretty good one, but we’re back to square one.
On a more positive note, the leathers look yummy as usual, the tailoring is impeccable and the whole look on the featured picture just works with that jacket under coat, belt over it, pants which look like jeans, but probably they are not. Or that extra shiny patent(?) pants with the asymmetrical knit, not those boots though.
Ah, I’m so disappointed, where is the next City bag, Nicolas? No push though, I couldn’t afford it, and actually I still love the original one, and yet, it’s a bit weird, the only bag I’m willing to pay extra money is a more than 10 years old design. Or it’s just me? Is this a bad thing at all? As I said, I’m pretty confused…
