This morning, Nicolas Ghesquiere showed his latest collection for Louis Vuitton at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, a brand new Frank Gehry-designed art museum in Paris. The collection, heavy on leather, chains, and holographic touches, went in a futuristic grunge direction—an edgier feel that I’m sure the fashion pack will welcome with open arms.
