Louis Vuit­ton’s work of art

Glamour (South Africa) - - Catwalk -

How does a lux­ury brand like Louis Vuit­ton stand out from the crowd? By se­cur­ing a venue so ex­clu­sive it has never agreed to host a fash­ion show be­fore: the Lou­vre. And then by get­ting them to host you on the one day of the week they are tra­di­tion­ally closed: Tues­day.

Ni­co­las Gh­esquière pre­sented Louis Vuit­ton’s au­tumn line in Fe­bru­ary in the Cour Marly, an im­pos­ing wing that houses French sculp­tures com­mis­sioned by King Louis XIV in the 1700s. Ni­co­las re­lied on noth­ing but light­ing to en­hance the space as mod­els walked up and down stairs, through a maze of front rows. The re­sult was ex­clu­sive, sim­ple, so­phis­ti­cated – not un­like the brand it­self.
