Nicolas Ghesquière, the art director of Louis Vuitton womenswear, mixes the ingenious thoughts in the golden age of fashion with the S/S 2020 womenswear catwalk. The unique design language is applied to play back the La Belle Epoque of Paris. The S/S 2020 womenswear catwalk of Louis Vuitton invited many celebrities, such as the brand ambassador Alicia Vikander, its friend Zhong Chuxi and Dilraba (an actress).
Gender boundary is crossed to capture inspirations from Dandy menswear style. The neat cutting sketches neutral temperament. Complicated pattern interprets the unique retro style. Handsome suits, the well-fitting waistcoat and slender trousers create an office style leading the urban new fashion.
The classic silhouette reflects the elegant form. Colorful sequins are decorated in the knit vest. The turn-down collar with cattleya brings back to the dreamlike age. The tight vest and the shirt with puff sleeves show the elegance and nobleness of females. When styled with cool trousers and lovely skirts, the match could show the retro beauty of females.
Florals with high saturation are exquisite, gorgeous and luxurious. The retro silhouette of the dress is combined to shape the mixed color tones and show the unique art aesthetics.
Layers of petals appear in light and soft lace with exquisite embroidery to make the wearer sweet. The exquisite folk pattern is in the chest of the dress to endow each girl with the unique beauty.
The leather and exquisite crafts are applied to shape the 3D look and play back the exquisite and luxurious Paris in the past. The shape of bud sketches the soft form. The hemline shows the softness and beauty of females.
The popularity of Dandy style has a direct influence that in the 1960s and 1970s dressing like the psychedelic and luxurious rocker was popular. There are several sets adopting large-scale color tones with high saturation in Ghesquière’s designs. Apart from the regular pristine and khaki, there are some retro colors like green, purple and red used in trench coats.
The important highlight of this catwalk is the retro design of puff sleeves Ghesquière is good at. This design could be used to leather outerwear and A-line dresses to combine the retro style with the futuristic sense.
