Art: Zhenya Z

As the last event on the first virtual fashion calendar, Louis Vuitton faced heightened expectations. Creative director Nicolas Ghesquière didn’t disappoint, bringing a much mourned element of interactivity back to the fore courtesy of several 360 degree viewer-controlled cameras. The dual vision carried through to the clothes, which Ghesquière designed to be deferential to non-binary dress codes, or lack thereof. He wanted to document our evolving mentality towards gender through LV’s sartorial mash-up of traditionally masculine and feminine styles, resulting in a contemporary collection that epitomised our present-day closets. While the collection was certainly true to Louis Vuitton’s DNA, a casual air was also present in parts of the collection, courtesy of graphic tees and sweatshirts, with pants taking on a more relaxed silhouette. The range was perhaps best characterised by this knit monochrome top, tucked into billowing, wide leg pants with delicate embroidery and an oversized belt at the waist – grown-up comfort wear designed to dissolve the boundaries of gender.

This is Louis Vuitton’s new work of art.
