Fashion Trends

With mere days to go before Louis Vuitton opens the doors to their #LVFragment pop-up at Surrender Orchard Road, here are a couple of things you need to be updated on. For starters, streetwear legend and founder of Fragment Design, Hiroshi Fujiwara, will be in Singapore for the exclusive by-invite only launch party on 21 April 2017. Next, the Singapore pop-up (which will be the second city in the world after Tokyo to launch this special collaboration collection) will also be featuring some exclusive pieces that you won’t get anywhere else. Yes, guys, these exclusives are strictly limited edition and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Priced from SGD440 to SGD2860, there are 8 pieces in all that will only be available in limited quantities. For starters, there’s the Doudou Louis Bear everybody wants, along with the small Monogram Eclipse Nano Bag (click here to see it in its full glory) that is another must-buy. The other bag, the larger Cabas in black fabric, is limited to just 10 pieces, which also means it will be gone in a blink of an eye. Rounding up the exclusives, there’s the brooch set and carabiner key holder, as well as all the rainbow pieces which include the Hawaiian shirt, tee, bandana set and the bandana stole.

The pop-up opens to the public on 22 April and will run all the way to 7 May 2017, with exclusives and the general collection made available for sale. The only difference? Once the exclusives sell out, they will not be replenished. In other words, it’s time to start getting in line because once they’re gone, they’re truly gone.

Nicolas Ghesquière unveiled his vision for Louis Vuitton’s fall-winter 2017 collection at the Louvre’s Cour Marly sculptural garden setting. The French designer focused on an eclectic range of styles for the new season–all with an effortless cool attitude. Spotlighting outerwear pieces ranging from furs to leather and tweed–the Louis Vuitton woman can choose from boxy cuts to volume-filled shapes. Trousers come in wool that almost mimics a denim material with piping and bold colors. As for skirts, above-the-knee styles get paired with chunky sweaters. Closing out the presentation, Ghesquière designed mix-media dresses with lace and floral brocades.

LOUIS VUITTON MERGES EXPERT CRAFTSMANSHIP WITH STREET CRED FOR SPRING

Fashion Trends

Merging traditional craftsmanship with innovative design is a true feat in fashion — as well as a central tenet of Nicolas Ghesquière's stint at Louis Vuitton thus far. For spring 2017, the designer continued (and perfected) the experimental cuts and high-tech fabrics that he introduced for resort, which was shown in Rio and will be coming to stores next month.

Wednesday's show took place at the still under-construction Louis Vuitton store at the entrance to the Place Vendôme, which is slated for a spring opening. The space's cement floors, walls and black steel central staircase provided the perfect milieu for a stellar outing of ready-to-wear and accessories as models walked along the set that resembled more of a traditional salon-style presentation.

The collection was a seamless blend of experimental cuts coupled with flawless craftsmanship — like a sliced Prince de Galles double-breasted bolero jacket with high shoulders paired with a front-wrap leather skirt; a series of blue, grey and brown bias cut dresses belted at the waist with cutouts and brass embroideries on the sides; and tulle beaded evening dresses with patches both covering and exposing the body. One of the black dresses has a combination of three types of fabrics: leather, satin crepe and light wool. The perfect tailoring of broad-shouldered, tropical wool jackets and wrap skirts demonstrated the house's command of artisanal expertise for the clothes, as well as the new bags and Petite Malle trunk-style phone cases — already a hit on social media.

Yet there is a casualness to the late '80s vibes of the collection (the gold pointed-toe boots and broad shouldered silhouettes, for example) without being obviously sporty — see the blue leather bomber or the printed tank made from sweatshirt material paired with a leather skirt. Even the evening dresses were kept to a bare minimum of light tulle with small patterned beadings and cut fabrics draped on the inside. These less precious (yet still luxurious) looks will likely woo millennial customers.

Not very often is an apparel collection from one of the world's largest luxury brands viewed as having street cred, but this spring, Louis Vuitton upped the ante and provided the requisite dose of avant-garde sensibility that's often lacking from traditional houses.

Louis Vuitton’s cruise 2017 show

Fashion Trends

Nicolas Ghesquière set the stage for the Resort season in Rio de Janeiro this afternoon. Celebrities and fashion insiders—including Alicia Vikander, Alessandra Ambrosio, Zendaya and Jaden Smith—flocked to Brazil for the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 show at the Oscar Niemeyer-designed Niterói Contemporary Art Museum. The collection drew inspiration from the city's vibrant art and culture, featuring pieces in splashycolors and prints, and futuristic silhouettes with sporty details. Accessories were equally cool—with such standouts as the label's signature trunk made over to look like a boombox and gladiator sandals with an athletic update.


Rio de Janeiro is in the eye of a storm, beset by a collapsing government, economic turmoil and the zika-virus-carrying A. Aegypti mosquito. On top of that, it has an Olympic Games to deliver in 68 days. The metro system isn't finished, let alone the beach volleyball stadium which will be the pride of Copacabana Beach but is currently nothing more than a mass of scaffolding in the sand.

Into this maelstrom last night came Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of womenswear at Louis Vuitton, to showcase his latest cruise collection for the French luxury behemoth. At first glance, his choice of the Brazilian port city seems almost as quixotic as Karl Lagerfeld’s decision to stage a Chanel cruise show in Cuba three weeks ago. It's certainly as much of a fashion ‘first’ as the Havana spectacular since there's never before been a major international catwalk show in Rio. But while the Cubans have been cut off from the wider world in fashion terms for about 60 years, Brazilians have very much kept up with the rest of us. Not only do they have genuine card-carrying supermodels - Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima to name merely three - they are also avid consumers of Vuitton’s handbags, luggage and accessories. And now, surely, of its fashion too.

Ghesquière is a lover of architecture, so the choice of venue was almost as important for him as the clothes he paraded there. And his building of choice was certainly spectacular. The Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói, designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and built in the 1990s, looks like a white flying saucer that has touched down on the tip of a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea about an hour’s drive from the centre of Rio. The only way out of the building is down a curving spool of crimson concrete that spirals down to the ground, creating the most dramatic runway any of the 47 seasoned models there can ever have walked.   Louis Vuitton was founded in 1854 in order to help the wealthy travel in comfort and style, and Ghesquière has been true to the brief.

There was a sport and an athleticism to the clothes, whether white-stretch, multi-pocketed trousers, or performance-fabric, zip-fastened mini-dresses, that indicated that, whoever the Vuitton woman is, she’ll be going places this autumn. She’ll also be striding out in comfort since the shoes and boots shown on the catwalk were resolutely forgiving neoprene - and were the thong-toed lace-up boots inspired by flipflops? There were more nods to Brazil in the footballer print inspired by the local artist Aldemir Martins’ paintings of Pelè that adorned some tank tops. Meanwhile the ruffles, hot blues and reds, and cutaway sections on many of the mini-dresses evoked a spirit of carnival.

As did the bags - some of which were styled to look exactly like a 1980s boom box, while others delighted with their fringing, graffiti decoration and vibrant pinks, yellows and scarlets. ‘I’m a Frenchman who’s come to present a French luxury collection but it’s also tropical and exotic,’ explained Ghesquière. ‘Nature is explosive here, and at the same time you have these wonderful buildings. It’s a beautiful chaos.’

Watching this joyous marriage of Vuitton and Rio was a hand-picked group of celebrities including the French icon Catherine Deneuve, the Swedish Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, Jaden (son of Will) Smith, and Adriana Lima. Beautiful chaos indeed.

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 Fashion Show took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the beautiful Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum, which set against the Atlantic Ocean and designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer.

“I so admire the power of Oscar Niemeyer’s conviction. His vision, his radicality, his utopia even. Being able to show a fashion collection in such an architecturally powerful space is a sensorial experience. In Rio de Janeiro, what I saw most of all was movement and an explosive energy that lives somewhere between modernism and tropicality. I was fascinated by the constant duality between nature and urbanism and the pictorial explosion it creates. For me, the main question was how to incorporate into my collection all these elements that are part of Brazilian culture, without forgetting that I am just a visitor who brings his own Parisian and French cultural references to the moment.” said the creative director of the house of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière.

The collection is sporty and artful with asymmetrical hems, peek-a-boo cutouts and lightweight layers. The accessories are futuristic. The gladiator-style sporty flat thong sandals and sneaker ankle boots are functional and practical, featuring molded comfortable sneaker sole with strap up or lace up around the ankle. The pointed toe booties are designed with T-bar front and finished in contrasted colors. Leather oxfords with large ankle cuff completed the silhouette with an edgy, confident and relaxed attitude.

Louis Vuitton continues to outdo itself with must see shows in exotic locales. Rio de Janeiro was the backdrop for their recent Cruise 2017 show, and the brand added ample sparkle by inviting well heeled celebrity guest and style stars.

Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Series-5-Ad-Campaign-Featuring-Selena-Gomez

Looks like American singer/actress Selena Gomez couldn’t really keep her hands all to herself since she’s busy holding Louis Vuitton bags in the latest Fall/Winter 2016 Series 5 Ad Campaign of the said leading French luxury brand.

Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière has posted the first photo of the campaign on his Instagram while the Hollywood star also shared a photo on her account too.

It’s no secret that the pop star has been one of the faces behind Louis Vuitton for quite some time now so it won’t come as a surprise for her to lead the brand’s newest campaign. For this particular campaign, Selena was seen wearing an oversized black fur hat and a leather jacket while carrying a Petite Malle bag in Monogram canvas.

Now let’s talk more about this particular bag. This bag was released not long ago so this is not a new bag but it’s making its grand reappearance for the said Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2016 Series 5 Ad Campaign.

The Petite Malle bag is inspired by Maison trunks, a perfect hybrid of Monogram canvas and classic hardware. It has a golden brass finishing, golden brass S-lock, magnetic closure and a removable shoulder strap.

This box of a beauty measures 7.1′ x 4.7′ x 1.6′ (L x H x W) inches and is priced $5200 USD or €3750 euro via Louis Vuitton boutique.
