Standout Geometrics Amidst a Sea of Textured Colors for Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2022 Collection
Louis Vuitton’s Cruise ’22 collection debuted with a splash of color akin to luminous “marching bands” of joyful color. Using the late artist Dani Karavan as inspiration, with the runway taking place at Axe Majeur, the collection is a heavy nod to architecture, nature, space-themes recurrent in Karavan’s works.
Intricate layering, geometric shapes, extreme detailing (think buttons, buttons, buttons!), athletic elements, shiny patent leathers and colorful embroidery are riddled throughout each ensemble. Impeccable tailoring keeps items from coming across theatrical—easily we can envision a young starlet donning the red tank minidress or perhaps an up and coming “It” girl, rocking Look #39 with the simplest of ease and what’s left still includes plenty of standout coats, jackets and dresses for a nicely rounded array of consumers. As the brand states, this is a collection of proud, positive looks that advance straight ahead.
Sustainability is a huge selling point for the Louis Vuitton team. An overwhelming 90% of their runway shows and event sets are compiled from reused or recycled materials. Additionally, this viewing boasts low construction, as the brand allowed Axe Majeur to be the standout story-teller. Even the gravel models walked upon will be recycled by the town of Cergy-Pontoise.
Just like the expansiveness of the galaxy, these offerings are the picture of harmony in an environment that is so close and yet so far away, borderless and open to adventure. One needs nothing more than the most beautiful of passports; creation. As ever, it is unlimited and free.
