Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Collection

This will be my final post covering the Fall2014 Ready-To-Wear Collections, and I definitely think sharing Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut collection for Louis Vuitton is a high note.  Without a doubt, the Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Collection was one of the most anticipated shows of the Fashion season.  The merging of such a admired designer and such a storied fashion house has been the talk of the fashion world since his appointment last fall.  Even I couldn’t help but write about the fashion house earlier this week!

For those of you unfamiliar with Nicolas Ghesquière, he spent 15 years at the helm of Balenciaga, where he developed a following among the fashion set and Hollywood celebs.  He is known for his understanding of shape and proportion.  After leaving Balenciaga in Fall 2012, Ghesquière did not immediately join another house.  It wasn’t until Fall 2o13 with the departure of Marc Jacobs that Ghesquière was appointed to Louis Vuitton.  3 seasons since his last show, it is no wonder that there was a lot of buzz around this collection.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 RTWAs for the Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Collection it is already being called a grand success.  And no wonder!  Ghesquière, intelligently, did not look to compete or even follow Marc Jacobs’ works.  Instead, he drew upon the Louis Vuitton heritage and his own aesthetic to create a collection filled with beautifully manipulated leather and clean silhouettes.

The result was a collection that felt like a real woman’s wardrobe.  Filled with both separates and dresses all of which seemed to ‘go’ together with ease.  Ghesquière had a year and a half to think about who he was as designer and I love that as a result this collection felt both highly edited, but endlessly creative as well.  The short hemlines and the a-line shapes of the skirts and dresses were fun, yet chic.  And the usage of different materials in a single garment was intriguing without feeling overworked.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 RTW 2Takeaways from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 Collection:
-Don’t be afraid to go short with your hemline.
-Give your mod a-line shapes a natural spin with earthy palettes
-Wear leather (real or faux) in unexpected forms.
-Try belting your pants/dresses/skirts/coats at your natural waist.

  1. He has certainly lived up to my expectations. I really think this is the kind of debut collection at LV I was looking from Nicolas without exactly knowing what to expect. It’s very Louis Vuitton, and it’s very Ghesquière, too. I think he’s already found his new place on the fashion map.

  2. Wow….gorgeous collection….loved all the dresses…:-)

  3. I think Vuitton made a fantastic choice – it was such a wonderful collection and everything just felt right and perfect. x

  4. I would wear almost everything in this collection- and I get that it’s ready-to-wear, so it’s supposed to be that way- but I feel like NG did an exceptional job making his debut collection both gorgeous + a work of art AND attainable from an aesthetics perspective. :)

    Great post!

  8. It’s definitely the most talked about show of the Paris Fashion Week. Even Chanel’s shopping mall didn’t bit it up. I must admit I liked how real was the LV collection. It’s made of pieces which every woman can wear

  9. I love your selection, I would wear everything:))) if I could:)))

  10. My favorites are the red structured bag and the leather pieces! nice photo selection!

  11. This was so different to the LV collections in the past, looks like he is taking the brand in a whole new refined direction. It was great hearing from you…Happy Friday Dear!

  12. Love it! The colors, the fit, the style EVERYTHING! Tho’ fall is my very favorite season of all.

  13. The jacket/coat pieces are probably the ones I love the most. It will be interesting to see where he takes the future seasons.

  14. So many of these outfits are wearable and it’s interesting to see the way he has combined the different fabrics and textures in one item of clothing. I particularly like the first tweed coat which would be so versatile too. I’m now going to catch up on your previous posts.

  15. He definitely captured a real woman’s wardrobe. The coats are to die for and I love the silhouettes.

  16. wow such an amazing collection!

  21. The thing I like most about this collection, as you said in your post, is that it’s really wearable collection. I maybe wrong, but I never really got that same feeling from the LV collections that MJ came up with, not to the degree that Ghesquiere has done here.

  22. Nicolas Ghesquière exceeded all expectations. I love the collection especially those mini LV trunks, no doubt it will be the next major it bag.
