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.

Lea Seydoux Is the New Louis Vuitton Ambassador

Fashion Trends

All doors open for Bond girls! Especially if you’re Paris-born actress Lea Seydoux, who just became the official face of Louis Vuitton! The French fashion house that has been setting standards for luxury and high fashion, already has a record of getting the best and most popular actors and actresses as brand ambassadors. It’s obviously a very popular marketing move; the movie industry is so powerful that having a good reference in your next ad campaign will score you an additional few thousand fans (just add the movie/actor fans to your consumer base).

Lea Seydoux Is the New Louis Vuitton Ambassador

It also adds more story and uniqueness to the campaigns than standard photo shoots with models you see in most ad campaigns for different brands. Take Dior’s short films featuring another stunning French actress, Marion Cotillard; they are not just ads, they are inspiring stories that everyone who has a bit of imagination wants to follow.

And naturally this is not the first time the brand has made use of cinematography benefits. Louis Vuitton, which Seydoux considers to be “a strong symbol of French elegance,” already has made investments in attracting actors and actresses like Alicia Vikander, Michelle WIlliams, Jennifer Connelly, and Doona Bae. All of them are currently brand ambassadors for Louis Vuitton.

Seydoux’s first appearance in the new role as a brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton will be at the UNICEF Ball in Los Angeles on January 12, where she will accompany the brand’s artistic director of women’s collections, Nicolas Ghesquiere. Seydoux will be wearing a Louis Vuitton outfit, custom made especially for the event. An incredibly exclusive detail many women would kill for, and we can’t wait to see how designers at Louis Vuitton picture Seydoux.

With more international fame she has lately gained, the upcoming Louis Vuitton ad campaigns, where she’ll be featured, guarantee a career hike for the actress. Her image already set as an elegant French woman, a great actress and an icon of style, she’s already conquering men and women around the world.

We’ll see more of Seydoux during Louis Vuitton events, ad banners and maybe even lookbooks (who knows!). Just like most brand ambassador partnerships, this one will most probably last for two years.

As you might remember (and it’s really hard to forget), Seydoux played the new Bond girl in the latest Spectre movie. She has earned the most desirable Palme d’Or in 2013 for her role in “Blue is the Warmest Color.” Seydoux has also been featured in “Inglorious Basterds,” “Midnight in Paris,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” and “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.” We’ll also see her in Xavier Dolan’s upcoming film “It’s Just the End of the World.” That’s an impressive portfolio of films, and that portfolio just got much bigger with this partnership.

Thanks to her unique appearance and unbeatable charm, Seydoux has also been a part of many fashion ad campaigns for brands like Miu Miu, Prada and Rag & Bone. As she has been playing episodic roles in the mentioned movies, and the latest “Spectre” movie was one of the best leading roles she has done, we feel this fashion collaboration will receive more exposure than any other ad campaign she has done before. That’s the rules of the game, you can go hard, or you can go home! At the moment Seydoux is going go anywhere but home.

Louis Vuitton Brings You More Color This Season

Fashion Trends

We’re already a little obsessed with LV’s latest fall bags. The darling Louis Vuitton Dora came back in new colors and even sizes. The Garance bag debuted, and is looking like the perfect, everyday tote. As you know, #PurseBopsGoneMiniCrazy, so there’s no need to rave anymore about the Louis Vuitton Nano collection…

Today, we’re here to explore even more LV fall treasures. As a part of the Fall/Winter 2015 line, Louis Vuitton is offering a limited edition capsule collection— the Monogram Totem collection. The Monogram totem collection is all about bright trim, color pops, and exotic flair. While the Monogram Totem collection bags scream playfulness and fun, they actually come with a significant story and history. Gaston Vuitton, the grandson of Louis Vuitton, was an avid traveler and collected African tribal masks. His masks were exhibited in Paris at the Colonial Exposition of 1931.

Nicolas Ghesquire employed the mask motif in the latest collection through colorful trim, eyelets, cutouts, and hardware details like studs. Paired with the iconic LV monogram print, the totem collection is simply eclectic.

We are quite motivated when we hear the word vintage, and when that vintage is of a rather well-loved and highly priced fashion brand such as Louis Vuitton, we cannot help but feel the thrill pass through our veins. And then, of course, is the whole collaboration thing, meaning that the bounty and the feast will include pieces that have been worked on by the likes of Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami, and Yayoi Kusama. Love the beauties available, especially the more classic pieces such as the monogram printed purses and gilded key fobs.

What is it that we can hope to find among the awesomeness that is a vintage Louis Vuitton sale?

• A Stephen Sprouse Speedy bag that will be going for $2,550.

• A vintage Monogram Miroir Lockit bag that is not much more affordable, available at $2,450.

• A Monogram Montsouris MM backpack that we clearly would love to get our hands on, but will set us back $1,450.

• A cherry patterned Takashi Murakami Sac Plat bag that is going for $2,250.

• A small but charming Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama Monogram Pumpkin Dots leather key holder that is available for a whopping $525.

• A vintage Louis Vuitton Bijou Candy Bag Charm that we just might not mind spending $425 on.

• A Miroir Heart coin purse that is positively adorable in silver, shining with the LV classic designs and available for a mere $550.

• A vintage Monogram Pochette Florentine hip bag that is the posh way of carrying around your money and valuable papers while travelling, coming in at $850.

• A vintage Monogram Pochette Twin GM bag that is only slightly less expensive at $750.

• A vintage Louis Vuitton Monogram Sarah wallet that we would all love to have from $595.

• A vintage Luis Vuitton magnetic cube game going for $350.

Nasty Gal Vintage Louis Vuitton Collection 2015

Louis Vuitton is not the only vintage available at Nasty Gal either, with Chanel also coming in with an extremely large collection of items and clothing, from belts to skirts to jackets and earrings, shirts and trousers to handbags and necklaces.

A piece of advice to all: do not wait to buy your favorite finds… who knows what fashion vultures are hiding in the bushes, waiting to pounce on those delicious goods!
