Louis Vuitton A/W14 - Ghesquière's Debut

On March 5th, 2014, a new Louis Vuitton woman was born. Unhindered by his own past at Balenciaga and the prominent shadow that Marc Jacobs had left over the brand, having been the creative director for sixteen years and the man who introduced ready-to-wear to Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière gave us a show that shall never be forgotten.

The 1960s was a clear inspiration for Ghesquière through the silhouette with the nipped in waists and babydoll dresses. The palette was more of a Seventies feel with plenty of maroon, mustard, browns and blues features alongside, naturally, plenty of skins such as crocodile, suede and leather. The whole style was one that screamed fresh-start: clean, neat and absolutely desirable; even the blinds of the Cour Carrree show space were open, allowing natural light to flood in. 

The most favoured bag was the Petite Malle, a miniature version of the Louis Vuitton trunk,which reflected the luggage heritage of the house. Alongside were the sweetest little bowling bags and clutches plastered with the logo that scrunched into bows.

Now let's see who isn't dying to be a Ghesquière LV girl.
