You’ve read our breakdown of the Louis Vuitton Resort 2019 collection when it was first shown at private contemporary art museum Fondation Maeght back in May. At the time, we were all abuzz over Grace Coddington’s mini-capsule collection with the house that was replete with her signature animal illustrations. Having finally seen it in person at a preview, it’s pretty much safe to say that they’ll be hot sellers when they hit stores sometime in October. Here, the accessories that caught our eye:
The best-selling Archlight sneakers, first introduced in the S/S’18 season, now comes in an updated metallic finish for all you chrome-heads out there.
It’s also available in a new bootie style, as well as over-the-knee variations, as seen at the show.
For a hyper futuristic-meets-’80s take on chemistry class apparatus, Louis Vuitton ought to be your first stop.
One of the highlights was undoubtedly the mini capsule collection executed in collaboration with former Vogue creative director Grace Coddington. The range of small leather goods, bags, shoes and apparel all feature Coddington’s whimsical illustrations of her cats, as well as Ghesquiere’s pooches.
Like we said, cuuuuute.
Yet another covetable factor: the French maison’s signature monogram has been rendered in a orange-y red — a nod to Coddington’s famous flame-hued mane.
Bucket bags are big this season but they’re not the hobo-styles of yore. Louis Vuitton’s version, done up in their signature Epi leather, comes across as more sleek and refined, if anything.
Another big accessory trend this season is coin jewellery — those obsessed with horoscopes, zodiacs and the like, will take to Louis Vuitton’s version. Look closely and you’ll realise each animal of the zodiac is emblazoned on the coin.
For those who like things a bit more classic, the Biface (left) and the Dauphine (right) bags would be suitable. An update of archival models from the ’70s, the bags sport metallic locks and multiple straps that allow for many ways to carry them.
