Insta-Critic: Drawstring Pants and Logo Tees at Louis Vuitton

From the moment Freja Beha Erichsen walked out in a plush sheepskin coat and patent leather ankle boots, carrying a shrunken-down silver luggage trunk as purse, it was clear that Nicolas Ghesquière intends to keep Louis Vuitton cool and current, regardless of the brand’s plans for world domination. It’s a tricky balance given the weighty status of a brand like LV–only further exemplified by the show’s monumental venue, the palatial Fondation Louis Vuitton. Still, Ghesquière pulled it off: blending mod ’60s elements like low-heeled slingback mules and structured slip dresses, with casual pieces like drawstring pants and logo tees for a mix that showed that even the LVMH umbrella won’t make things too serious.
