Lookbook: Louis Vuitton's Cruise 2014/15
The beautiful and naturalistic world of Nicolas Ghesquière
'A Trip' — The theme of Louis Vuitton's new lookbook is certainly what Ghesquière is taking the fashion world on, as he explores an unexpected universe of mixing genres, unique layering and pseudo-paradoxical juxtapositions.
Shot at Louis Vuitton headquarters in Paris and on location in Monaco, Juergen Teller helps showcase the fusion of competing allusions and a vibrant clash of colours which is seen throughout Vuitton's latest Cruise collection.
The variety of different fabrics exude a bohemian allure. While Ghesquière adds a sensuous, artisanal touch by mixing inlaid silks, custom woven lace and detailed aquatic embroideries like barnacles and sea urchins.
This Cruise collection goes off the beaten track and explores transformation in clothing, however the clothes still remain associated with the idea of everyday attire and timelessness.
