Louis Vuitton unveils Women’s Pre-Fall 2020 collection
ELEGANT and feminine with a retro chic edge, Louis Vuitton presents its Pre-Fall Women’s collection – a depiction of fashion as a novel, complete with garments that live to tell the tale. The collection explores anachronistic narratives, drawing inspiration from past, present, and future styles to form a vibrant curation of ready-to-wear pieces.
Adhering to the innovative voice and tone of the luxury brand, while echoing Virgil Abloh’s prediction that the future of fashion is “expressing your knowledge and personal style with vintage”, the collection incorporates refined tailoring and streetwear sensibilities, with women’s creative director Nicholas Ghesquière often juxtaposing the two.
Epitomising the collection’s flair for sportswear, highlights of the collection include a long-sleeved bodysuit, elevated by the House’s signature Damier and Monogram motifs, a monochrome dress that boasts sophistication with black sleeves and V-neck detail, and cherry red mini shorts finished with a contrasting trim for a retro edge.
For a burst of colour, statement pieces include a collarless wrap coat in a red wool-silk blend with a contrasting plum-coloured giant Monogram jacquard interior, combining warmth, lightness and suppleness for a modern yet sporty allure, and a classic cable-stitch sweater enveloped in a distinctively pop-art-inspired canary yellow hue.
