Louis Vuitton presents Women's Fall Winter 2018 collection
March 27, 2018: Luxury brand Louis Vuitton recently closed Paris Fashion Week with a Fall/Winter 2018-2019 ready-to-wear collection presented at the Lefuel courtyard at the Louvre.
Built between 1854 and 1857 by architect Hector Lefuel during the restoration process of the new Louvre Napoleon III (inaugurated on August 14th, 1857), this inside courtyard within the museum is non-accessible to visitors. Originally used for horses to access to the riding manege, the museum plans to restore it.
Sculptures of wolves, dogs and wild boars in bronze, created by sculptor Pierre-Louis Rouillard in 1857-1858, adorned the ramps and the drinking trough. The collection itself is sober, elegant with contemporary styling. Layering and fringe gave a twist to suits and skirts.
Materials such as leather, wool, tweed, silk, crepe, faux fur, sequins, lurex and suede have been crafted with a color palette of grey, black, white, yellow and brown. A mix of nostalgia and modern styles, the collection surprises with its simplicity and finesse.
