Louis Vuitton Imagined A Series Of Their Muses As Protagonists Of Horror Movies And Sci-Fi Novels
For Pre-Fall 2020, Nicolas Ghesquière (a French fashion designer who has been the creative director of the house of Louis Vuitton) imagined a series of Louis Vuitton muses as protagonists of horror movies and sci-fi novels.
Ghesquière gives us Jennifer Connelly in a scalloped lace pleated dress as the star of “Dreamkeeper”; Robyn wearing sequins and cool leather in “The Night Chaser”; and Jaden Smith as a pattern-mixing boy in “The Lost Planet.” There’s also Léa Seydoux in an “Exorcist” T-shirt worn under a shiny cocktail number; Emma Roberts in a scarlet red dress; Angelica Ross in a plaid skirt accessorized with giant moon boots; and Sophie Turner sporting a white suit, camel coat and the same moon boots. Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, Chloë Grace Moretz, Alicia Vikander, Stacy Martin, Kelsey Asbille, Doona Bae, Laura Harrier, Zhong Chuxi, Yaya, Noémie Merlant, Deepika Padukone, Woodkid, Rinko Kikuchi, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Samara Weaving complete the cast, each one getting their own retro style pulp fiction moment shot by Collier Schorr.
“Fashion is a novel,” state the lookbook notes from the luxury label. “And the Pre-Fall 2020 collection embarks on a narrative journey where the garments tell their own tales. In such a ‘wearable library,’ each outfit writes its own chapter made up of romantic monologues.”
