Everything is expressed so purely in Greco-Roman antiquity, the acme of an aesthetic whose primacy is uncontested. More than a journey, Louis Vuitton embarks on an odyssey with a Fall-Winter 2021 collection. A collection in which voluminous layers were were emphasized by the creative director’s choice of materials. Looks consisting of leather, tule, voile, tweed and even lammy drew attention and made the watcher long for pre- or post-pandemic eras. Ghesquière explained he wanted something impactful; a moment of fashion. That certainly succeeded. With every look, Ghuesquière sparked joy and made us dream of better times ahead.
Collaboration with Fornasetti
The multifaceted collection showcases Fornasetti’s iconic hand-drawn imagery that has enchanted art and design lovers since Piero founded his atelier in 1940.
The collaboration begins with Ghesquière’s Fall-Winter 2021 collection which integrates Fornasetti’s visual universe into multiple designs. Unveiled in the setting of the Michelangelo and Daru Galleries in the Louvre, the collection with its Fornasetti images of antiquity builds a time-travelling aesthetic and creative dialogue with the museum’s remarkable array of Greek, Etruscan and Roman sculpture.
