Return to the Louvre and the Cour Marly, the majestic sculpture hall where Louis Vuitton’s Fall-Winter 2017 runway show was held.
The Cour Marly is home to a remarkable collection of sculptures by the leading artists of the 17th and 18th centuries. These include the Fleuves (Rivers) group, the Chevaux ailés (Winged Horses), Mercure et la Renommée (Fame and Mercury), the Chevaux de Marly (the Marly Horses), Neptune et Amphitrite (Amphitrite and Neptune), Pan, Vertumne (Vertumnus), l’Air (Air), l’Eau (Water), Flore (Flora), the fountains of the Nymph, Amphitrite and Diana, and the Apollo and Daphne group.
For Nicolas Ghesquière, the notion of frontiers is of fundamental importance.
Ever since its founding in 1854, Louis Vuitton has also pushed the boundaries of know-how, innovation, design and travel.
These looks from the Louis Vuitton’s Fall-Winter 2017 collection redefine boundaries. Frontiers recede, and the emerges a new play of stylistic lines: great American sportswear classics and Slavic accents, inspirations from fashions of the past and translations into the world of today, urban classics and the magnetic pull of folklore…
Bestowing new identities on its creation, but retaining Louis Vuitton’s ambition: to sweep us away on the purest of journeys.
