For the Louis Vuitton showcase, Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière made quite an appearance.
Full-sleeved musketeer shirts were trapped under 18th century frock coats and long Louis XV waistcoats threaded in lurex brocade for a sparkly, electric majesty that wasn’t of our time – or a time we’ve ever known.
Ghesquière had visited the Met in New York and fallen in love with a collection of original frock coats from the Baroque and Rococo eras.
“What category of clothes can I explore to try to make a surprise with this flamboyant feeling?” The designer instinctively made the historical garments part of his contemporary urban world, he said backstage, by assimilating them into sportswear.
