French fashion designer Nicolas Ghesquière unveils his new travel-ready runway collection for Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer show.

A warm, orange hue is cast over the backdrop of the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The famed avenue that connects both the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde serves as the site for Louis Vuitton Women’s Spring-Summer 2024 runway show and has been retrofitted with drapes that paint the entire locale in a shade of mandarin. Alongside its ochre-colored setting, the space’s interior has been transformed to resemble hot air balloons, which is a subtle callback to the Maison’s history of travel.

Fashion designer Nicolas Ghesquière presented Louis Vuitton’s latest women’s runway collection with an emphasis on a contemporary, travel-ready wardrobe. The show was also defined by the concept of air, which lends itself to more relaxed silhouettes, ventilated textures, and garments that reference flight in any shape or form. The collection was highlighted by flowy silk skirts and blouses contrasting against much more structured elements, being paired with leather bomber jackets and double-breasted blazers that are similar in appearance to pilot uniforms. Ghesquière continues to encapsulate his transit-influenced vision through pattern work that is inspired by hotel decorative fabrics, alongside lines and checks that create the illusion of floating with each look.
