My obsession started when I was about 15-16 years old. Christmas was right around the corner, when my mom told me to run out to her car; to get a box that she left in the trunk. It was late at night and I had no idea what she could’ve wanted from a box so late… Until I opened the trunk and my Louis Vuitton Speedy 40 was lying so elegantly in it’s box. Since that moment, I’ve been infatuated with Louis Vuitton.
Louis Vuitton’s Cruise ’17 collection venue was Rio de Janeiro’s Niterói Contemporary Art Museum, designed by Oscar Niemeyer.
As I began to watch the show, I instantaneously brought into Nicolas Ghesquière’s (Creative Director of LV Women) futuristic & sporty fantasy world. The looks were very avant-garde; Final Fantasy XV (The Video Game) might want to take notes when creating outfits for their characters. Many of the looks showed a lot of skin that would appeal to a younger customer. The collection also incorporated a racing motif that was implemented throughout the collection. The majority of the accessories were also adorned with NASCAR-like graphics, that integrated the iconic LV logo.
My three favorite pieces from this collection would have to be the white or black thonged sandals, the Petite Malle fanny pack, or the Speedy Bandouliere!
