Paris Fashion Week F/W 19/20:

Louis Vuitton

In terms of trends, 80s in Paris are back in force. Not only because of the stellar celebration of Thierry Mugler in his fist solo exhibition ever and the capsule Claude Montana collection developed by Gareth Pugh for Farfetch. At that time, design and street style were totally different in the French capital compared to the rival London. Let’s keep in mind that the whole decade was also led by the cherished ministre de la culture Jack Lang who made France great again and who shocked his pairs when wearing a Nehru collar Mugler shirt, without tie of course. All this was at the center of the Louis Vuitton show today. And much more. As a set, Nicolas Ghesquière asked for a reproduction of the famous and modernist Centre Pompidou inside a tent, at the Musée du Louvre. The real tour de force was also by giving to archetypal 80s fashion mimics an updated beat. The ruffled tops, the padded micro jackets, the heavy loafers and the biker looks were fun, delicious and totally wearable. Here and there, we tracked the legacy of less famous designers such as Anne Marie Beretta (the coats) and Popy Moreni (the clown collars), make up wonder Serge Lutens or then it-girls such as Elli Medeiros and Farida Khelfa, who was at that time the muse of the image maker Jean-Paul Goude. And a dash of new wave, a shot of pop (thank you Michel Gaubert for an amazing soundtrack) made this show -the last of the season- a very enjoyable fashion moment.
