We’re almost there.

Louis Vuitton is about to release the Monogram Collection, but before that, they want you to see Julia Nobis’s latest Ad Campaign.

Not too long ago, we wrote an extensive article about the Monogram Iconoclasts Collection and we shared the entire history. But it’s basically a limited series of Monogram Accessories designed by the six world-class renowned designers – Karl Lagerfeld, Frank Gehry, Cindy Sherman, Marc Newson, Christian Louboutin and Rei Kawakubo.

And it’s not just another release, this one is special as you will see handbags crafted from artist that has gathered inspiration and experience around the world.

The most notable is Karl Lagerfeld’s punching bag collection. It also features the Monogram Punching Trunk and though the prices haven’t been published yet, we know it’s going to be expensive.

Okay, let’s drop some information. Ahum, the New York Times Magazine estimated the price to be around $175,000 USD. Yes, you heard it right!

But back to Julia Nobi’s Monogram Collection Ad Campaign, it’s a very personal thing. You see, she is spotted taking a selfie picture while carrying the Monogram Travel Shoulder Bag.

She is also featured with Cindy Sherman’s Monogram Studio Trunk in a messy room, Julia is lying on the couch and playing with her parrot.

Then another picture showed her face painted like a clown, with her eyes closed and sitting on the Monogram Studio Trunk (folded) and holding the Monogram Tote Bag.

So what do you think? Would you get one?

Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Jungle Dots Speedy 30 Bag
Size: 15.7′ x 10.6′ x 5.9′ (L x H x W) inches
Price: $1370 USD, €980 euro

The iconic Monogram Canvas gets a little twist again for this season. The French fashion house decides to mix it with the most-recent ‘Jungle Dots’ print to create and wild and cool look.

Here’s what you need to know…

The Jungle Dots Collection is purely made for the spring summer, which is why it’s also called the Palm Springs Collection. The Palm trees are carefully painted in pink and placed behind the red-bold dots.

The pattern is refreshing and joyful, the dots evokes wild and tropical animals passing through the palm leaves. The print is very feminine and perfect for a trendy bright summer style.

Love it.

This print is featured on iconic handbags like the speedy bag but as well as on small accessories like wallets. We’ve even spotted the wallet on chain.

While Louis Vuitton made the Palm trees pink, there’s also another color available – green. So green Palm trees adorned with monogram canvas. I am not sure whether this style is practical for all seasons, but its certainly qualified for the summer.

Louis Vuitton To Host Cruise 2017 Show In Niterói Museum

Fashion Trends

It’s official – Louis Vuitton‘s cruise 2017 show will be out of this world. The runway will be the first show hosted within the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; an iconic building created by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer in the shape of none other than a flying saucer. It is here where creative director Nicolas Ghesquière will unveil his latest creation for the luxury label; and what a lovely view, too, as the museum overlooks the Guanabara Bay.

Louis Vuitton To Host Cruise 2017 Show In Niterói Museum

When news broke that the brand would stage its show in Rio, we were nearly overwhelmed thinking of all the possibilities for the runway, especially with the show’s proximity to the Olympics, which will be held in Rio three months later. The hype for both events will definitely boost morale for the Vuitton team, and for fans far and wide. According to WWD, Vuitton’s show will be staged on May 28, which also just so happens to be the museum’s 20th anniversary.

The last Vuitton cruise collection was shown in Palm Springs at the Bob and Dolores Hope estate, and viewers remarked at its mild resemblance to a UFO, but this season the resemblance is uncanny, which will allow viewers to totally transport themselves into a new, and futuristic, state of mind. Ghesquière rather romanticized the concept, adding a bit of poetry to the idea by illustrating that using unconventional buildings for showing collections is all “about being transported into a relationship where nature, geography, and architecture come together.”

The museum, according to Niemeyer is like that of a flower, complete with a reflecting pool around its base, with a red ramp curving around it; this will become the red carpet for Vuitton’s celebrity guests, come May.

Luis Vuitton has been doing a lot with visual and digital art with its shows in recent seasons, so with this spectacular location as its source, we can only assume this trend will continue. The use of social media and even video games (remember Ghesquière’s crossover with Final Fantasy?) shows that Vuitton is a frontrunner with incorporating technology into fashion, so with a UFO-resembling museum, there is a great deal of potential for a futuristic, technological set of clothes, that still manages to be perfect for customers seeking stylish resortwear.

Something tells me in the years to come there will be a mad dash for luxury brands to reach extravagant, inspiring locations to showcase their collections. It is definitely not a new concept, but each season we at least know to look forward to new locations that are rather groundbreaking for the season and for the purposes of the designers; it’s just a matter of who will get to new locations first. But if you ask me, I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Louis Vuitton, fronted by Ghesquière, at the front of the pack.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2016 RTW Collection Focuses on a Sport Theme

Fashion Trends

It’s the last day of Paris Fashion Week fall 2016 and, while everyone is already tying up the loose ends trying to understand what fashion will be all about next fall, some of the biggest brands are still frantically showcasing their collections. Almost bicentenary Louis Vuitton is among those brands that are waving the Paris Fashion Week goodbye with their catwalks, just unveiling its fall/winter 2016-17 ready-to-wear collection at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. Nicolas Ghesquière’s next season collection was showcased on a specifically blue-toned space set at the Bois de Boulogne Park in Paris, which helped evoke some cool autumnal/wintery feels indeed.

Louis Vuitton Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

Like Chanel’s front row yesterday, Louis Vuitton’s was also filled with influential personalities, such as Alicia Vikander, Selena Gomez, Léa Seydoux and Catherine Deneuve, among which Willy Smith’s son Jaden Smith surely stood out of the crowd (like his sister Willow, who has now officially become Chanel’s brand ambassador). Genderless fashion enthusiast Jaden Smith has been breaking the boundaries of fashion for a while now, and since earlier last year he has found in Louis Vuitton a great source of inspiration for experimenting with clothes.

And experimenting through fashion surely is one of Louis Vuitton’s and Ghesquière’s forte, as the French Maison has always embodied the symbol of ultimate innovation. For the Louis Vuitton fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection athleisure-inspired pieces got gracefully combined with graphic patterns and terrific tailoring skills, making it possible for the models’ bodies to be almost geometrically shaped.

Visible hems and prints resembling corsets and bras were the collection’s key details, taking the whole ‘inside-out’ trend to a brand new level. To reinforce the inside-out concept Ghesquière had fun playing with color-blocking motifs as well, among which red, green and blue colors were particularly celebrated. Such choice gave the overall collection a sort of superheroine vibes, as most of the proposals looked liked modern wearable versions of Marvel Comics’ costumes. On the other hand, the athleisure vibes got translated to t-shirt dresses, simple t-shirts with colored geometrical patterns, yoga pants in edgy leather and even a quirky hybrid that combined varsity jackets and mid-calf vests together.

As for the silhouettes, Ghesquière particularly enjoyed accentuating the hourglass figures, adorning most of his proposals with rounded dark-toned patches of fabrics at the waists. Peplum figures are of course to be contemplated here as well, as they became the sole protagonists once the show was drawing to a close. Other interesting figures included asymmetrical necklines, asymmetrical double-breasted zip-front jackets, asymmetrical frilled hems for almost any mermaid dress and, overall, anything asymmetrical in general. He then played with contrasts by alternating all these asymmetrical sharp-cut proposals with more relaxed nerdy sweaters and elegant mannish coats.

In the perfect Louis Vuitton tradition, Ghesquière took the time to add haute couture touches here and there, to be specifically seen in the exaggerated hats, fur and intricate glittery embellishments and, of course, in the accessory line, with the handbags and sporty shoes being just the icing on the cake. The collection’s finale paid homage to Maison Margiela’s iconic trompe l’oeil sequined frocks, which also gave the collection some vivid Nineties vibes. Thanks to Louis Vuitton, the upcoming fall season won’t be boring for sure!

Nicolas Ghesquière Unveils Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Fashion Trends

Louis Vuitton‘s pre-fall 2016 collection is futuristic, sporty, and sexy, which is just the way creative director Nicolas Ghesquière likes to keep things. He decided to use some of the best pieces from past collections that have actually come to be staples in the LV customer’s wardrobe, and all work to keep her feeling young and modern. When it comes to this, Ghesquière knows best, and when women wear his looks in the street it shows.

Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Color-blocked motocross pants don’t quite seem, in theory, that they should be a staple piece in a woman’s wardrobe, yet after Ghesquière put his signature on them, it seems they’d look good on anyone. It also wouldn’t be likely they would be so versatile, yet according to Louis Vuitton, they can be worn with anything from simple to elegant tops. Then again, there were many pieces that could fit right alongside the motocross theme in this line, and they needed to be paired with something to keep things fresh – but now that the pairing has been seen, it’ll be all over the streets to show who’s who when it comes to fashion followers.

You could also find looks like a zip-fronted minidress, which Ghesquière popularized back in fall 2014, that exuded fun youth, while still keeping things modern and progressive. Tossing back references to popular past trends from the label like this is a great thing for brand recognition. Seeing the zippered dress or the color-blocked pants on someone walking down the street just shows who has been shopping LV lately.

The apparel was extremely fashion-forward, but the accessories were exceptional on their own. The handbags were the most versatile part of the Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2016 line, as they didn’t have the same quirk or blatant futuristic vibe the apparel did. Bags big and small will likely make a huge splash when they hit the market, as many of them were much more sophisticated than the clothing in the collection.

Belts were used to alter the silhouettes of the garments, but the most striking and interesting accessory photographed with the looks was black gloves. They made everything on the models instantly more punky, and also more sexualized, in a dominatrix-esque way. There were so many different directions Ghesquière was trying to take the collection in, and the result was an eclecticism that also hints to steampunk.
