Putting femininity in the spotlight, the Spring-Summer 2023 Collection changes the play of proportions, using emphasis as of a figure of style, where the infinitely large and infinitely small come together in one silhouette. The Maison’s signatures that have become ingrained in Louis Vuitton’s DNA take on a disproportionate quality, becoming integral to the collection’s narrative. Finding this new balance in scale, zippers and snaps are outsized, clasps become belt buckles, and a scrap of leather is turned into an outfit.
Cour Carrée du Louvre
Staged once again in the majestic surroundings of the Louvre in Paris, Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2023 Collection is unveiled in the museum’s Cour Carrée. For the first time, Nicolas Ghesquière has invited leading French contemporary artist Philippe Parreno and production designer James Chinlund to conceptualize the event’s spectacular set design. With metal grills, mirrors, and a myriad of lightbulbs that evoke a fairground attraction, the set is centered upon a vividly red “monster flower” with golden stamen that rise up dramatically into the Parisian sky.
