In a quirk of the fashion calendar, Louis Vuitton released images of its pre-fall collection just days before it was due to show its fall line in Paris.

Nicolas Ghesquière cherry-picked elements from previous seasons including a navy pea coat, blanket capes and A-line miniskirts, all done with a slightly Sixties twist.

Recurring details included chevron stripes, which added a sporty vibe to a gray fur jacket, and the brand’s signature V motif, which appeared as a seam detail on the pocket of a collarless denim jacket, as well as on the clasp of a belted dress with a peplum skirt. Shoes included neon orange patent leather over-the-knee boots with heels in the shape of the monogram flower.
