glam­orous venue for a press pre­sen­ta­tion of Louis Vuit­ton’s spring/sum­mer 2017 col­lec­tion for women. Fash­ion ed­i­tors from all over the re­gion got to see the col­lec­tion, up close and per­sonal. In tune with the spirit of travel that is syn­ony­mous with the House of Louis Vuit­ton, Artis­tic Di­rec­tor Ni­co­las Gh­esquière chose Paris as the in­spi­ra­tion for his lat­est cre­ations.

Paris rep­re­sents a cer­tain du­al­ity with the fash­ion sense of Right Bank vs. Left Bank of the River Seine, which cuts through the city. The Right Bank, where the city’s big busi­nesses are mostly lo­cated, tra­di­tion­ally rep­re­sents a more up­scale and so­phis­ti­cated style of dress­ing. The Left Bank, which is his­tor­i­cally known as the artis­tic part of Old Paris, rep­re­sents a more edgy and ca­sual style. This du­al­ity is cap­tured in the col­lec­tion with looks that fea­ture sharp suits as well as fluid dresses.

Em­ploy­ing a play of dar­ing cut-outs and well-placed slits, the power suits and dresses in the col­lec­tion were fash­ion for­ward. While the sil­hou­ette can both be fit­ted or loose, the shoul­ders are strong and ac­cen­tu­ated, rem­i­nis­cence of eight­ies’ power dress­ing-chic code. Dress length var­ied from short to long ones, and tai­lored suits were pre­sented with op­tions of pants or skirt.

Flashes of green, blue and mus­tard yel­low gold ac­cented the colour pal­ette, but dom­i­nat­ing the col­lec­tion were black, white and grey. A graphic play of black and white were also ex­hib­ited in polka dots and checker­board prints on tops, dresses and suits. Bead­ing were also much used to de­tail the col­lec­tion es­pe­cially on a num­ber of long sheer dresses. The gen­er­ous sprin­kles of crys­tals and glit­ter that beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated a se­ries of long dresses ra­di­ated a new sense of disco glam.
