After seeing the latest Louis Vuitton collection, beyond the clothes themselves, we were amazed by the scenery, something that has characterized the brand while it was in the hands of Virgil Abloh. For this reason, we want to recapitulate the visual spectacles that we have seen, the backgrounds through which the garments of the iconic fashion house were paraded.
- For the Spring 2019 debut show, the designer was inspired by “We Are the World” by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. His unifying interpretation of we are all one, regardless of color, nationality, identity, or generation, was to place a vast rainbow as a walkway, and we were captivated.
- For his following collection, MJ’s inspiration continued because the scenery was the recreation set of the iconic Billie Jean video, an approach to New York at that time.
- For his fall 2020 show, we were presented with a fantastic, surreal setting with a blue sky, white clouds, and various tools used by the artisans in the sewing house. Finally, we can’t help but think of the Truman Show with that ladder from which the models descended.
- The next iconic setting occurred in the fall of 2021, whose space immediately reminded us of the iconic Barcelona Pavilion, a building designed in 1929 by Mies Van Der Rohe and Lily Reich. A show in general inspired by modern architecture.
- Finally, the most recent collection was called “Louis Dreamhouse.” It seemed like a space you only get to see in a dream. An empty bed next to what looked like a house half-sunk in the ground, a dining table, and a clock standing at 8 o’clock all in a pastel blue space, a true fantasy.
