Kismet is the best word to describe Nicolas Ghesquière’s time as the Creative Director for Louis Vuitton. Ten years ago, on March 5, 2014, Ghesquière presented his first collection for the Maison in the Cour Carrée at the Louvre. This time, on the same date, he’s marking a decade of creativity in the iconic venue with a collection that has eyes looking forward to the women of the future.


Ghesquière explored the celestial universe and new horizons for the latest collection through reflective materials, soft leathers, and moving silhouettes often created with architectural shoulders. Silvery white dresses are gilded on the runway, followed by a striking royal blue coat and the renowned savoir-faire leather bags for which the brand is known. 


It was a season of introspection and imagination for the designer as he charted a new course for Louis Vuitton through a series of memories, emotions, and references, namely from the rococo and space age, which is a nod to Ghesquière’s iconic looks. He sought to define time and space, and Fall-Winter 2024  reflected that as it seamlessly moved between white and black, silver and bronze, electrified with touches of color.


Pieces of the past came back to life as structured dresses featured iconic prints from the brand’s archives. In contrast, certain iconic bags such as the Louis Vuitton Riviera made an appearance on the runway in a dark elegant blue and beige that is known as the “gris trianon,” which, for those that don’t know, is an archival hue from the 19th-century trunks that became the symbol of the Maison’s image as a luxury brand made for the centuries.


Another notable theme that was highly evident was the use of fur gloves, subtle fringes, and shimmering eye masks that bordered sheer confidence, quiet luxury, and grace. According to a statement, Ghesquière followed his stylistic North Star, the curious traveler’s essential compass. The creative vocabulary defined over the years is reinvented.


Artist Philippe Parreno designed the set in collaboration with production designer James Chinlund, and sound designer Nicolas Becker created the soundscape.
