It is likely not correct, on a definitional level, to contact any Louis Vuitton collection “minimal.” That type of aesthetic cleanliness is just not inside the brand’s visual vocabulary, even if designer Nicolas Ghesquiere has accomplished a lot to pare down some of the far more baroque impulses of predecessor Marc Jacobs. The outcome, which was in complete show on the Louis Vuitton Spring 2018 runway in Paris, is a sort of neo-minimalism that lends itself properly to modern day-seeking accessories, in particular handbags.
That resulted in new bags in each circular and cubic shapes, which goes along with existing trends of designers browsing for techniques to make bags structurally (and as a result visually) novel. I suspect the circular bags will be popular—they’ve proved so for other brands—but the cubes could possibly be a tougher sell. This bent toward shape more than embellishment extended to numerous significant Speedys which had been stripped of most of the facts connected with the bag the shape, of course, was unmistakable.
LV let itself get a small far more embellished with a couple new chain-strap shoulder bags, like a major manage-totally free version of the fairly new Chain It Bag and some saddle designs that will most likely be well-known. Verify out all the bags beneath.
