Cruise Control – Louis Vuitton
Nicolas Ghesquière showcased a cruise collection poles apart from his last for S/S ’16. Gone were the vintage hues of the sultry seventies and instead a Mad Max theme was present under the dusky summer sun of Palm Springs.
Location is always an extremely important element to any LV show and with the frequency of tailored trousers, leather flip flops and breezy fabrics, it was possible to see why the estate of Bob and Delores Hope was a perfect choice.
I loved the dresses, especially the black embellished maxi dress with slashes of forest green alongside a floral chiffon creation with Medieval nuances – ideal for the rebel bohemian. The Petite Malle bags were even updated with a palm tree print to fit the tranquility of the location.
An overall favourite of mine was definitely the silver crocodile box jacket which would look incredible with black leather hot pants and some killer biker boots for a futuristic rock and roll vibe.
