Louis Vuitton does not put up a fashion show for its Pre-Fall Collection. Instead, the brand creates a carefully designed look-book for this season between seasons, using a combination of ideas from past seasons. For this year’s collection, Louis Vuitton’s creative director for womenswear Nicolas Ghesquière roped in a powerful force of Hollywood’s women. From Academy Award winners and nominees to industry newcomers, the faces are diverse. The ladies have one thing in common; most of them have been spotted at Louis Vuitton fashion shows on numerous occasions. The high-profile list includes Thandie Newton, Jennifer Connelly, Michelle Williams, Ruth Negga, Sophie Turner, Chloë Grace Moretz, Alicia Vikander, Léa Seydoux, and Laura Harrier to name a few.
Ghesquière maintained that he wanted to create ensembles keeping in mind the models’, here actresses’, points of view. Hence, every model is dressed in an outfit that she feels most herself in. Isn’t that what fashion is about anyway?
A look through the photographs, beautifully shot by iconic fashion photographer Collier Schorr, and one can see a number of patterns and prints contrastingly thrown together in a way that works perfectly. Plaid and stripes go with zebra and floral, with accessories not shying away from funky shapes and even more patterns.
Here are some accessories from the collection that you can purchase to complete your own outfits with that signature Louis Vuitton pop of high fashion.
Known for its iconic bags, Louis Vuitton’s Toupie (top in French) is one of the many style statement pieces they have ushered into fashion.
In the unique shape of a top-cum-UFO, the bag, available in two versions, can be wrapped around the hand or hung from the shoulder by the cord. One version, glossy black leather with the patent LV monogram, is accented with a beaded tassel at the bottom.
The other, staying true to the collection’s theme, is a black leather piece with blue and pink floral print.
Boite Chapeau Souple in Monogram Giant Reverse canvas
The ever-fashionable Boite Chapeau Souple bag made from the iconic Louis Vuitton canvas is printed with a striking motif in, both, regular and reverse.
In a lightweight, compact size to carry the bare essentials, its Toron handle enables the versatile bag to be worn as a sling over the shoulder or across the body.
Laureate Desert Boot
This platform-heeled boot is crafted from suede calf leather, accented with the LV Monogram canvas trim, and tied with wrap-around leather laces.
With a treaded rubber outsole, the 2-inch platform gives you the perfect height to stand tall wherever you go while maintaining your fashionable look.
A new addition to the line, these earrings in gold are exquisitely debossed with Louis Vuitton’s signature LV branding and floral Monogram motif. A matching ring, necklace, as well as hair accessories, are also available.
Sea of Love Necklace
Worn by Oscar and Golden Globe nominated actress Ruth Negga, as seen in the look-book, this glamorous neckpiece is crafted of golden coloured pieces of leaf-shaped metal with a V engraved at the end of each.
The leaves are artistically attached to a black Monogram silk jacquard to give it an added element of luxury.
