It was the most anticipated show of the season, and it marked a seachange: whimsical romance out; chic pragmatism in. As Louis Vuitton’screative mantle passed to Nicolas Ghesquière from Marc Jacobs, thedifference came into sharp focus. Jacobs is an emotional designer,Ghesquière, a cerebral one — a distinction very evident in their work.
Ghesquière’s debut ushered in a new era for one of the moststoried names in luxury. “It’s a balance of newness and heritage at thehouse,” Vuitton chief executive officer Michael Burke said postshow,explaining Ghesquière’s mandate. “Audacity that leads to eternity. Therehas to be a certain sense of timelessness.”
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
