Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear Paris Fashion Week. The fashion show took place in renewed and opened La Samaritaine, renewed and turned by Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH (Louis Vuitton group) in luxury hotel.
Movie “Wings of Desire” of Wim Wenders, and repeated image of Bruno Ganz, an Angel staying on the roof of high building in Berlin right after the Second Word War, is a leitmotiv of Louise Vuitton Spring Summer 2021 collection by Nicolas Ghesquiere.
Is that a message that the old world is destroyed, but there’s always a hope? The original name of the movie “The Heaven over Berlin”, the movie about hope and love, the story of Angels. The collection is inspired by modern generation of artistic Berlin.
If you look at the collection closely you will see several themes:
the theme of Berlin’s wall – the contemporary art and graffiti,
the theme of the Angel – black coats and lose jackets,
the theme of the sky and clouds – grey and silver combinezons with clouds on them,
and the theme of the prisoner’s uniform of death camps – ti-shirts and pants with stripes.
Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere took these themes with the HOPE. This is the story in the “Wings of Desire” or “Heaven over Berlin” and the theme of the collection. That is probably why on some ti-shirts we can see one word “VOTE” (fist look), so the darkest human history won’t repeat itself.
