In exclusive photographs taken backstage at the Cour Carrée du Louvre, see the striking detail that made up the motifs that ran throughout Nicolas Ghesquière’s tenth anniversary Louis Vuitton show: his paillette veils, trunk-printed minidresses, and the faux fur and feather cuffs that extend from tech jackets and build on silhouettes.

Light from looming, luminescent orbs bounced off of Nicolas Ghesquière’s gleaming white runway as he presented his tenth anniversary collection for Louis Vuitton. Each piece would hang in the balance: equal parts play and restraint, retrospective and prospective. 

That might just be his M.O. At his first show in March 2014, Ghesquière unveiled the petite malle, a miniature version of the classic Vuitton trunk, an emblematic piece with roots in the early beginnings of the Maison. In this collection, and every collection after, the designer infuses his affinity for historical dress and heritage signatures with his confident, forward-thinking, constantly building on the past and making it look like the future. 

For fall/winter 2024, there was a functional quality to his display of the Maison’s savoir faire, affixed with whimsical touches that felt astonishingly new. Backstage at the Cour du Carrée du Louvre, see the motifs that ran throughout the collection, from the high-necked, sculptural minidresses printed with collaged details of classic trunks, the feathered dresses in leisurely draped cuts, to the tech jackets slashed to subtle patterns.
