Last season for Louis Vuitton, Nicholas Ghesquière created a collection tethering off massive proportions. Inspired by a sculpture that longtime friend French artist Philippe Parreno created—one that was towering and alien—alongside Hollywood production designer James Chinlund to corroborate a mesmerising set. Zippers came supersized, the largest ever manufactured for the house, alongside oversized straps hanging from sporty vests. His intent for the collection was to also reinvent the codes of femininity, with silhouettes that were “tough” and “pretty threatening”.
This fall/winter 2023, Ghesquière is once again, joining hands with his collaborators from last season. Under the midas hands of Parreno, an immersive sensory experience will take place at the Musée d’Orsay, where light and sound will dance in tandem in honour of the current landscape of modern Paris and France.

In a series of video teasers uploaded on Louis Vuitton’s Instagram, one can only anticipate a phenomenal runway set—only to square off perfectly with Ghesquière’s ready-to-wear reveal. The maison’s signatures will also be revisited and reinvented it seems; with iconic handbags set to return with the maison’s emblematic codes. As with previous shows, famed friends of the house—in the vein of Deepika Padukone, Jung Ho-Yeon, Jennifer Connelly and newly-minted ambassador Hyein of Korean girl group NewJeans—can be expected to make their stunning appearances.
Tune in live to the Louis Vuitton fall/winter 2023 show from Paris, happening on 6 March at 9.30 pm SGT.
