Bon voyage


The TWA Flight Center is somewhat of a forgotten gem but a crucial piece of American history and represented the golden age of travel. Voyagers were led into the old arrivals and departures hall where everyone received a VIP experience and a front row view.

Speaking of VIP’s

Plenty of familiar faces attended the show including close friends of the Maison such as recently married Sophie Turner alongside her husband Joe Jonas, Michelle Williams, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Stone,  Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander.

Go green

The space was decorated in around 2,500 plants and after show they will either be turned into compost or donated to New York city gardens.

New York, New York

You can’t stage a show in a city that doesn’t sleep and not pay tribute to it. Few separates featured the New York skyline while many of the shimmering bags represented the glittering peaks of some the tallest buildings in the world. There was also a nod to Wall Street with a number tailored suits, architectural silhouettes that mimicked the shape of the TWA Flight Center, and some glam-rock dresses.

TV in a bag

Louis Vuitton debuted a prototype of cutting edge bags that featured screens either side showing a digital universe of a city.

Not a heel in sight

Your feet can rejoice as Ghesquière didn’t show a single heeled shoe. Instead, models stomped out in lace up boots that perfect offset the pretty mini dresses and boxy jackets.
