Louis VuittonResort 2015 Monaco

Runway Review
5/18/2014 TeamFWP

The state of Monaco  known for its soaring skyscrapers and riveting views from the Prince's Palace, hosted the first ever Louis Vuitton Cruise collection. The house has a long standing history with the monarchy since its been exactly 100 years since Vuitton received its first royal commission-a crocodile skin garment to be exact.

We spoke with Artistic director Nicholas Ghesquiere immediately after the show and he described his visit to the Palace earlier this year as the main inspiration to this collection. His tour of the majestic palace provided a new gust of inspiration in his mind " i was drawn by the vast details in the architecture and the amazing collage of the buildings from different era's" he stated.

Artist Ange Leccia created a digital aquatic montage that bubbled beneath the runway as the lights came up, immediately providing a set for the collection. The show opened with an embellished raspberry red top paired with a pair of pink pants with a flair bottom, Ghesquiere described the collection as an extension of his first ready to wear collection for the house of Vuitton that he presented in Paris this past March. There was leather paneled blazers with gorgeous motifs of hand painted flowers, embroidery chiffons and flirty black lace dresses.

The accessories were soft yet elegant-the kind of things you would wanna pack in a Vuitton trunk regardless of where your destination is.
