Louis Vuitton Women’s SS 2021 Show With ‘80s Inspiration Takes The Digital Experience To The Next Level

Louis Vuitton continues to push the boundaries and up the antes, this time with its Women’s Spring-Summer 2021 fashion show by Nicolas Ghesquière. The Samaritaine department store was revamped by LVMH for the show, which housed socially-distance-friendly seated in-person guests, while cameras provided virtual viewers 360-degree views of models coming down the runway, making the experience far more interactive than other digitally-driven shows we’ve seen. Celebrities in attendance included Alicia Vikander, Venus Williams, Lea Seydoux and more. The collection itself drew from an ‘80s inspiration, playing with male and female-driven silhouettes. “What does an in-between garment look like? What kind of cut can dissolve masculine and feminine? What wardrobe might s/he look good in,” the House asks. This exploration made its way down the runway via 43 looks. See some of the looks, celebs and scenography below, as well as a video of the full show.
