It’s that time of year again when some of the most historic fashion houses give us a glimpse of the trends we’ll all be wearing next summer with their cruise collections. Louis Vuitton was one of the latest to debut its SS19 collection and it’s safe to say it exceeded all of our expectations. Here are 5 of the major moments we enjoyed…
1. The venue
Taking place in the sculpture gardens of Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul de Vence, south of France, the show venue was a geometrical delight that complemented the sculptural silhouettes perfectly.
2. The front row
Stars that graced the all-important front row included long-time brand ambassadors Emma Stone in glittery trousersTrousers (pants in North America and Australia) are an item of clothing worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately (rather than with cloth extending across both legs as in robes, skirts, and dresses). In the UK the word “pants” generally means underwear and not trousers.Shorts are similar to trousers, but with legs that come down only to around the area of the knee, higher or lower depending on the style of the garment. To distinguish them from shorts, trousers may be called “long trousers” in certain contexts such as school uniform, where tailored shorts may be called “short trousers”, especially in the UK., Jennifer Connelly wearing a voluminous colour-block top and striped trousers and Léa Seydoux in a patterned dressA dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment). paired with a boxy jacketA jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing..
3. The update on a key trend
One of this season’s favourite trends, the ‘dad trainer’, resurfaced – this time revamped as a thigh-high version. Don’t have pockets quite as deep as attendees Emma Stone or Léa Seydoux? We’ve got covered with our coveted Ciara version here.
4. The make-up
Known for her eccentric beauty looks, Pat McGrath didn’t disappoint. Models had their foreheads emblazoned with flames and roses. Natural no-makeup makeup balanced it all out to give a minimal healthy glow.
5. The collab
One of fashion’s most treasured figures, Grace Coddington, collaborated with the brand to create one-off pieces. Coddington worked with Louis Vuitton’s Creative Director Nicholas Ghesquiére to create a capsule creation of ready-to-wear and leather goods as an ode to her cats Pumpkin and Blanket. Who says we can’t bring our animals to work?
