After Chanel, Prada and Dior, fashion house Louis Vuitton presented its Resort 2019 collection Monday, May 28 at the Marguerite and Aimé Maeght Foundation near Saint-Paul de Vence in the South of France. Sometimes highly feminine, sometimes androgynous, Louis Vuitton’s Resort 2019 woman has several sides, always laced with a sense of freedom and carried with confidence.
Prints were legion in the Louis Vuitton Resort 2019 collection, with polka dots, stripes, graphic patterns, flowers and abstract motifs. Whether all-over patterns or in smaller touches, and with shiny fabrics or pastel hues, prints were the stars of this Resort 2019 show, reflecting its many inspirations.
Designer Nicolas Ghesquière — artistic director of Louis Vuitton women’s collections — also played with volumes in this mid-season show, with some close-cut creations plus fuller pieces and layering effects using various materials.
The Resort 2019 collection featured many accessories, with hats — in both sophisticated and wilder styles — belts, mask-like sunglasses and extra-large earrings. As for footwear, Louis Vuitton picked thigh boots as the mid-season star, with flat, chunky, sneaker-like soles, creating a futuristic style with a sporty feel.
