Klick-Klack, Tok-tok-tok… cock-a-doodle-do… mooo, mooo… klick-klack, klick-klack…. meeeeeeeeeee…
And this was my review of the collection, which corresponds to the sounds created by Nicolas Becker for this Louis Vuitton show, or almost exactly like this. We can obviously express our vision through the sounds of nature and animals, so as well as we – experts.
The décor reminded of a prison cell, and the models walked through this corridor of honors clinking and clanking as if they had a ball and chain.
What is French style? The question itself an enigma, kindling endless fascination. An irresolute fashion residing above an oxymoronic foundation of audacious tradition. An evolutive fashion, like the palimpsest of multiple currents from all over, in which couture conventions embrace an astonishing mix of cultures to become what is known as the French exception. This style of an ineffable magnetism that still intrigues the world; that too is paradoxical: sophistication with a dilettante’s air. French allure is a trompe l’oeil. The French touch never foils to captivate.
Anchored in this unique heritage, Louis Vuilton hos always had a travelling spirit. The Maison is a vessel sailing through time, guided by the winds of savoir-faire, technique, discovery and artistic ideals. For the this collection, the show returns to the vaulted salons of the Musee d’Orsay, where artist Philippe Parreno and production designer James Chinlund once again sign the scenography with a concept based on sound illusions conceived by Nicolas Becker. The stylistic mystery intensifies. A French (fashion) story.
