“I so admire the power of Oscar Niemeyer’s conviction. His vision, his radicality, his utopia even. Being able to show a fashion collection in such an architecturally powerful space is a sensorial experience. In Rio de Janeiro, what I saw most of all was movement and an explosive energy that lives somewhere between modernism and tropicality. I was fascinated by the constant duality between nature and urbanism and the pictorial explosion it creates. For me, the main question was how to incorporate into my collection all these elements that are part of Brazilian culture, without forgetting that I am just a visitor who brings his own Parisian and French cultural references to the moment.” said the creative director of the house of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière.
The collection is sporty and artful with asymmetrical hems, peek-a-boo cutouts and lightweight layers. The accessories are futuristic. The gladiator-style sporty flat thong sandals and sneaker ankle boots are functional and practical, featuring molded comfortable sneaker sole with strap up or lace up around the ankle. The pointed toe booties are designed with T-bar front and finished in contrasted colors. Leather oxfords with large ankle cuff completed the silhouette with an edgy, confident and relaxed attitude.
