LOUIS VUITTON RESORT 2019 REVIEW

 

  • MUSIC FROM WOODKID “ON THEN AND NOW”
  • JENNIFER  CONNELLY READING FROM GRACE CODDINGTON’S “GRACE: A MEMOIR”
  • PLUS THE NAGOYA CHILDREN CHOIR

 

NICOLAS GHESQUIERE’S #NOTGOINGANYWHERE REVEALED HIS FIFTH SHOW WITH THE LUXURY HOUSE IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE AT THE MAEGHT FOUNDATION MUSEUM OF MODERN ART. GHESQUIERE COLLABORATED WITH CLOSE FRIEND AND STYLIST, GRACE CODDINGTON TO ADD A QUIRKY TWIST TO THE CRUISE SHOW. SHE DID JUST THAT WITH CAT AND DOG BAGS DRAWN TO REPRESENT HER AND GHESQUIERE’S PETS.

THE MODELS SWEPT ALONG THE MAZE RUNWAY, PASSING SCULPTURES BY JOAN MIRO. THE SCULPTURES WENT WITH THE THEME OF THE RESORT WITH SLICED SLEEVES AND LAPELS CURVED TO A POINT. THIS SEASON GAVE ME PURE 80’S VIBES OR 80’S ECLECTICISM SHOULD I SAY, SHAPES AND VOLUMES WHICH ARE TRANSFORMED THROUGH MOVEMENT AS “FOR SURE, THE SHAPES OF THE STATUES AND THE VOLUMES OF THE STATUES WERE INFLUENCING MY SILHOUETTE ABSOLUTELY. YOU ALWAYS FIGHT WITH GRAVITY WHEN YOU DESIGN CLOTHES” AND WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT THIS FIGHT WAS WON BY GHESQUIERE HIMSELF.

 

THE FIRST LOOK INTRODUCES THIGH HIGH LEATHER BOOTS WITH SOLES SIMILAR TO LV’S ARCHLIGHT SNEAKERS THAT ARE SEEN THROUGHOUT THIS COLLECTION. I MEAN CAN I ORDER THESE BOOTS RIGHT NOW IN A SIZE 6, BECAUSE I’M ALREADY OBSESSED?

 

  • JEDI WOMEN
  • BELTS KNOTTED AROUND THE WAIST OR SHORTS
  • RUFFLED SLEEVES AND HEMS
  • CLEAR GOGGLE TYPE GLASSES – THE TYPE YOU WOULD USE FOR A SCIENCE EXPERIMENT
  • LONG SILVER CHAINS

 

 

LONG PLEATED DRESSES THAT REACH THE ANKLES OF THE MODEL, REVEALING A SNIPPET OF THE THIGH HIGH BOOS UNDERNEATH. A KNOTTED ROPE WRAPPED AROUND HER WRISTS, SWAYS PAST HER BODY AS SHE WALKS, THIS JUST MAKES ME WANT TO WALK AROUND IN THIS SAME DRESS IN A MANSION, WITH MARBLE FLOORING DOING THE ABSOLUTE BARE MINIMUM BUT FEELING ACCOMPLISHED IN THIS LV DRESS. THERE IS A SORT OF POWER AND AUTHORITY THAT THE MODELS HOLD AS THEY WALK IN THESE GARMENTS, WHILE HOLDING DIFFERENT ACCESSORIES AND I LOVE IT, THE HEIGHTENED ELEMENTS OF THE MUSIC GOES WELL WITH THIS AND THAT IS WHY I MENTIONED JEDI EARLIER ON:

WITH LOOK NUMBER 8, THE “DAD BRACE” IS SOMETHING YOU WOULD SHY AWAY FROM, HOWEVER GHESQUIERE IS CONTINUOUSLY PUSHING LV FORWARD, GIVING US A LOOK THAT WE DIDN’T EVEN REALISE WE NEEDED! THE TAILORED SHIRT/JACKET WITH THE LAPEL BUTTONED TOGETHER, THE MODEL JUST LOOKS LIKE A FORCE-TO-BE-RECKONED-WITH.

  • TAILORED/BOXY SUITED LAYERING ON TOP OF PRINTS
  • ANGULAR SHOULDERS
  • COLLARS THAT PLEAT UP TO THE NECK
  • NEW CRUISE LACE UP SNEAKERS
  • NEUTRAL TONES, MIXED WITH METALLIC AND BOHEMIAN PRINTS – MIX AND MATCH PIC A MIX ANYONE?
  • BOXY BAGS TO GO WITH THE SILHOUETTES

 

 

PLAID HAS NOT LEFT US JUST YET SO KEEP UP GUYS! WAISTCOAT WITH EXTENDED NECKLINES, LOOSELY FITTED OVER A JUMPER. ALL THE COLOUR PALETTES COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER SO EFFORTLESSLY, SOMETHING I LIKE DOING MYSELF WITHIN OUTFITS.

I’M SCREAMINGGG LOOK 15 IS A BIT OF MEEEEE WHEN I SAY I NEED THIS WHOLE OUTFIT IN MY LIFE I MEAN IT WITH MY CHEST, I’M CLAIMING IT WITH MY CHEST FROM THE ACCESSORIES TO THE WRAPPED LEATHER JACKET AND SUIT DRESS UNDERNEATH, LET’S JUST SAY IF I HAD TO PICK A FAVOURITE OUT OF THE CRUISE SO FAR IT WOULD BE THIS! THE SUBTLE DETAILS OF THE EXTENDED BELTS THAT FALLS BESIDE HER AND PEAKS THROUGH UNDERNEATH THE JACKET IS SO EFFECTIVE. NIPPED WAISTS I APPRECIATE YOU! THE SNATCH IN HER WAIST, CREATES VOLUME FOR THE GARMENT UNDERNEATH…AND YA GIRL IS HERE FOR IT.

 

 

  • SEQUINNED MOSAIC TILES ON GARMENTS
  • STATEMENT EARRINGS

 

IF A LOOK HAD TO BEST DESCRIBE ECCENTRIC IT WOULD BE THIS ONE…80’S SHOULDERS, ACID WASHED, HAND PAINTED DENIM JACKET AS IF THE WOMAN HAS PAINTED THE GEOMETRIC SHAPES HERSELF WITH A LILAC BLOUSE, PRINTED SKIRT WITH LV MONOGRAM BUTTON… I REPEAT IF A LOOK HAD TO BEST DESCRIBE ECCENTRIC IT WOULD BE THIS ONE.

 

KNITWEAR OVER SHIRT DRESSES? YES PLEASE? WHERE DO I SIGN UP?

 

FLORAL PRINT, A STATEMENT THAT I DON’T USUALLY ENTERTAIN BUT LV DEFINITELY HAS A WAY OF MAKING ME FEEL LIKE I SHOULD.

LEATHER JACKET WITH LV MONOGRAM LINING, I’M THINKING FOR STYLING IF POSSIBLE, WEAR THE JACKET TWO-WAYS, SO SOMETIMES BLACK LEATHER THEN TURN IT INSIDE OUT AND EXPOSE THE MONOGRAM.

LV RESORT 19 27

THE WRAP CUT-OUT DRESSES AND COW-GIRL MATCHING HATS WAS ANOTHER FAVE OF MINE AND TO WRAP THIS REVIEW UP (YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE) I ADORED THIS RESORT COLLECTION AND SHOW, DESPITE NOT BEING THERE IN THE FLESH THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE SURROUNDINGS AND BEAUTIFULLY CARVED SCULPTURES GAVE MEANING TO THE GARMENTS AND MADE IT EVEN MORE DESIRABLE TO LOOK AT. THE MAZE-LIKE RUNWAY WAS INTERESTING BECAUSE WHILE WATCHING THE VIDEO YOU GOT TO WITNESS THE MODELS MORE THAN ONCE AND THAT WAS EVEN BEFORE THE FINALE SO THE GARMENTS AND ACCESSORIES ARE ALREADY UNFORGETTABLE IN YOUR MIND. THE STRUCTURE OF THE TAILORED JACKETS, AND YOUTHFULNESS OF THE MINI SHIRTS AND SHORTS WENT SO WELL WITH THE BOOTS. SPEAKING OF BOOTS (COME ON I DID SAY I WAS OBSESSED), THE PLAY ON THE BOOTS/SNEAKER SOLE IS REFRESHING TO SEE. IF I HAD TO LEAVE ON A NEGATIVE NOTE IT WOULD BE THE OVERLAYING OF THE FLORAL PRINT AND THE SILK/LACE COMBO, DESPITE THAT I LOVED WATCHING THIS SHOW AND WRITING ABOUT IT AND I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE PEOPLE BRING OUT THEIR ECCENTRICITY ,

 

THANK YOU NICOLAS GHESQUIERE!
