Nicholas Ghesquière debuted his collection for Louis Vuitton Fall 2020 at Paris Fashion Week! One of my most awaited shows to see each year, and to say I am fascinated by this brand is an understatement.
This season, Ghesquière enlisted the costume designer Milena Canonero. The show contained a monumental backdrop of 200 choral singers, each one clothed in historical garb dating from the 15th century to 1950. It was honestly the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

While watching the Louis Vuitton Fall 2020 show, I shed a tear. The cordial blend of classical music and a beautiful collection truly does have the potency to move me.
—And in this case, Louis Vuitton did that.
“I wanted to imagine what could happen if the past could look at us” said Nicholas Ghesquière in an interview with Vogue. He was appointed the co-host of this May’s Met gala, and Louis Vuitton is sponsoring the Costume Institute exhibition, “About Time: Fashion and Duration,” that the gala celebrates. Ghesquière took as his subject this season the exhibition’s theme: that fashion is a mirror of the present moment—but not any old mirror.
Let’s get into the details
He debuted a total of 46 looks. As models cat-walked down the runway, we saw intricate pattern and texture mixes, sporty parkas, which tapped into streetwear ideology, styled with a frilly skirt, scarfs, futuristic gloves. “Sports luxe”, if you’d like to call it. We saw Louis Vuitton Keepall’s with refined straps, voluminous frill skirts in different textures and colours like patent leather, gold tone leather, and many more. There were texture plays like jewel-encrusted boleros jackets, met with parachute pants, buoyant petticoats paired with fitted tops, giving a futuristic robotic vibe, yet Victorian with the volume play with the frill skirts. A great way to tap into the past, present and future through fashion.
My Favourite Pieces
My favourite pieces in this collection were the embellished jackets. Care to make a statement without even having to speak? Just buy a Louis Vuitton jacket.
The beautiful, handcrafted, intricate embellishments on the jackets show how incredibly thought-out the craftsmanship is on each piece. The blend of textures particularly caught my eye, like the leather and knit. It had an asymmetric cut which was rather unconventional, but quite flattering on the figure while asserting power, poise and sexiness at the same time. Need something casual to pop out to the grocery store? Casual. Just throw this boleros jacket on. I know I would. 😎
The Refinement of the Archlight Sneakers
We saw the Arch sneakers remastered, with Velcro fastening and different colour-ways.
The Louis Vuitton Archlight Sneakers were first introduced in the Spring/Summer 2018 fashion show and have been a hit ever since.
In an interview with Vogue, Nicholas Ghesquière was asked what his hopes are for the future.
“What I want is everyone to be safe. This world can become a little more serene, that’s what I wish.”Nicholas Ghesquière
I thought this was a beautiful collection and Nicholas’s message and vision for the future was executed beautifully.
