“It felt like an ode to vintage fashion with a touch of modernity.”
Stars gathered on Paris’s Avenue des Champs-Élysées to view Nicolas Ghesquière’s latest collection for the fashion house. Long-time brand ambassadors Lea Seydoux, Zendaya, and Jaden Smith make their regular, nonetheless highly anticipated, appearances at the show, along with newly announced ambassadors NewJeans’ Hyein and Stray Kids’ Felix, who each caused much of the excitement online for the brand’s global audience.
The fashion house also extended invitations to front-row mainstays Bryanboy and Heart Evangelista, Vogue Philippines editor-in-chief Bea Valdes, and now actress Anne Curtis, who makes her Paris Fashion Week debut this season. She tells Vogue Philippines that the Louis Vuitton show was definitely a highlight. “I was blown away by all of the details,” she said after the show. “I loved all the different silhouettes, the play on different [fabrics]. Nicolas is a genius.”
To give her full take on the Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2024 show, Anne sits down with Vogue Philippines for a post-show debriefing, highlighting every single aspect she loved.
Vogue Philippines: What was your overall impression of the Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2024 collection?
Anne Curtis: I loved the whole collection. I felt the softness from the start of the show with all the flowy silk. It felt like an ode to vintage fashion with a touch of modernity. There was a rush and play on a variety of gorgeous fabrics with masculine-meets-feminine silhouettes.
What themes stuck out to you the most?
The play on vintage silhouettes. Corsets, suspenders, body jackets. And hats.
What piece from the collection do you see fitting into your wardrobe?
The corset with the silk skirt. I absolutely fell in love with it when I laid my eyes on it.
I don’t really have a personal style. I’ve always been the type to dress my mood, and it’s really an extension of how I express myself. [Like] what others have said, it’s almost like being a chameleon. My style changes with how I feel. The corset piece, I would probably wear to an event or a nice dinner with friends. That’s the magic of the mixed fabric from this piece… [It] could even be a day-to-night outfit depending on how you style it.
It’s your first Louis Vuitton show in Paris. What was your biggest takeaway from the evening?
The genius of Nicolas Ghesquière. No matter how many times you see a season or show, it will always be a new experience because of the vision [Nicolas and his team] have in their minds for each collection, a vision that comes to life on the day of the show. I was literally blown away sitting so close to the runway, seeing all details up close. I loved the energy in the room from the excitement everyone had.
My favorite part of the show was when everyone would be welcomed to the venue chatting away, catching up, but—like magic—a hush of silence would fall upon the room, and everyone would have all eyes on the runway and [the] collection. All energy and eyes focused on the true meaning of why we were all there.
It’s your first Paris Fashion Week! What was your favorite part of the experience?
I loved the energy of the people and city for Fashion Week. It’s very different from when I come for a fam vacay. I enjoyed meeting new people from all over the world who have the same love for fashion. Speaking about each collection after a show was also a great way to see the collection from a different eye. I loved that during my first Paris Fashion Week, I got to see so many familiar faces from home!
