C A NDY CRUSH
Under Nicolas Ghesquière, the Louis Vuitton aesthetic is classic but streamlined and modernised. This translates to wardrobe icons with a Sixties and Seventies slant, brought up to date with envelope-pushing fabrications – think miniskirts patched from eel skin, A-line coats in glossy croc and shaggy furs, and high-waisted flares in flocked velvet. Its travelling caravan of exclusive accessories includes over 90 pieces rendered in ostrich and crocodile skins. The Alma BB crocodile bags in tangerine, buttercup, and sky-blue are great for balmy St. Tropez days and electric Miami nights. By special request.
