Nicolas Ghesquière Turned the Louis Vuitton Runway Into a Theater

by Wmag

It wasn’t just the clothes that were brimming with drama. For fall, Nicolas Ghesquière transformed the set for his Paris Fashion Week Louis Vuitton runway show into a theater. A wall of live spectators, themselves dressed in a range of costumelike getups (one woman was dressed as a geisha, a man appeared as a Revolutionary War soldier), stood at the back of the runway to watch the models walk. And this season’s collection was a reflection of the stage: multicolored, flouncy can-can skirts resembled something out of Moulin Rouge; multiple looks were après-ski ready with anoraks and puffers galore, and there were leather pieces throughout. (A couple of leather jackets, in fact, tied like robes around the waist, and featured neon shearling collars.) Little velvet headbands, printed in the LV monogram, came with net masks over the face—a picture of dramatics. See all the looks from the final show of Fashion Month, here.
