The Louis Vuitton Series 3 exhibition is an engaging journey, sharing the pathway between concept and creation of craft. Optical illusions play with
the senses throughout the experience, giving an insight into the materialisation of Nicolas Ghesquière's vision. The grand geodesic dome mimics
angular facets of the iconic heritage trunk; leaving you questioning what treasures lie inside...
The live Infinite Show showcases monochromatic details of the Autumn-Winter 2015/16 collection. Bold patterns and textures come together
effortlessly, where I was compelled to channel Freja Beha's chic. Taking a brief moment to grace the runway landscape myself!
All that glitters gold here make up the minute details of La Petite Malle. Parisian artisans deftly construct the pieces like a perfect jigsaw, combining
the intricate mini hardware and leather. Et voilà! The accessories are ready after many a meticulous movement. In the gallery, the designs drape
beautifully from porcelain avatars.
The prismatic walk in wardrobe allows you to visualize pieces as a complete silhouette. Gazing through the transparent structure, the tactility of the
gold embellishment drew me in. In tying an entire outfit together, Ghesquière believes "accessories never stand alone, there has to be a common
thread between them".
Like a poster mood-board, the final backdrop features the many faces which represent Louis Vuitton.
Keepsake stickers in pocket pouches decorated a wall at the exhibition, with little letters and diminutive accessories. Back in my atelier, I delved into
my own beadtrove, inspired by the metallic embellishment seen. D & T threadesses are adorned in dresses inspired by A-W 15/16. They're also fans
of key accessories from the collection!
