Women's Fall-Winter 2021 Show

Nicolas Ghesquière presents his Louis Vuitton Women's Fall-Winter 2021 Fashion Show at the Louvre in Paris on March 10th at 2 pm (CET)


Louis Vuitton reveals a selection of bags from the new collaborative capsule collection with Italian artistic design atelier Fornasetti. Including new designs as well as reinterpretations of iconic models, the bags reflect historical imagery while combining Fornasetti’s exquisitely illustrated world with Nicolas Ghesquière’s contemporary design.

The Louvre

Unveiled in the spectacular setting of the Michelangelo Gallery in the Louvre, Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection with its Fornasetti images of antiquity builds a time-travelling aesthetic and creative dialogue with the museum’s remarkable array of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman sculpture.
By incorporating the sculptures of the Louvre with the set design, Louis Vuitton was able to reduce the amount of material used in the show by 70% compared to previous years. In keeping with the Maison’s sustainability efforts and to give a second life to its ephemeral creations, the totality of the material will be reused to build new structures in the creative arts sector.

With this collaboration, I wanted to use the pieces to evoke the continuing modernity of Fornasetti’s artistic world.
