Nicolas Ghesquière, Vuitton’s artistic director for women’s collections, continued to work a Seventies vibe for the season with a spice-rack palette, wide lapels on blazers, ribbed turtlenecks and flaring jeans detailed with leather and a prominent zipper pull. A slim, elongated silhouette predominated, along with lightweight layers: knee-length tweed dresses, lightly padded down macs and dotted silk windbreakers.
Since he arrived at Vuitton in 2013, Ghesquière has taken a “wardrobe” approach grounded in real-world classics and open to interpretation and mixing. Noteworthy accessories for pre-fall included soft versions of the Dora bag, chain-handled silhouettes in quilted patent leather, and reworked Speedy bags in monogram canvas varnished to a high gloss.
