The Louis Vuitton show opened, saying “This season we have adapted ourselves to these challenging times.”
The runway was taken place in the Louvre’s Denon wing which was the European fairytale setting of your dreams. The first model entered wearing a blue princess dress with a yellow jacket overtop and a white sweater- she felt like the modern-day Cinderella. The music playing kept repeating the lyrics “strength, power, we are going to make it through it”, playing on the theme of fighting this pandemic. The overall message and tone were “we will come out stronger and better than before”. While this show did not have a live audience, it definitely came to life.
The line features blouson jackets, cocooning capes, bubbled skirts, and wedge-heel boots. The dresses seemed to be the 60s inspired in A-line or sack shapes. The show was filled with pastels and gemstone palettes, elaborate artwork prints, and flaunting silhouettes. The show brought a whimsical light of hope in the dark never-ending battle of Covid. Last but not least the final fashion statement was the closing pair of gladiator dresses, again emphasizing the theme of the “fighter” against the pandemic. Louis Vuitton proved, we can fight back with fashion.
