Nicolas Ghesquière presented Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2021 collection in Paris at the Samaritaine today (October 6), in presence of brand ambassadors and guest including Alicia Vikander, Léa Seydoux, Laura Harrier, Natalia Vodianova and Venus Williams.
Alicia Vikander: As you well know, when it comes to any Louis Vuitton gathering, Alicia Vikander is the best dressed, but on this rare occasion, I have nothing positive to say about this Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 look as none of the pieces belong together. I mean, grey pumps, paired with striped leggings, a ruffled blouse and dual-coloured parka? Eh? Usually I always buy what Alicia is selling, but on this occasion I feel like I need a refund. The only good thing about this is that she didn’t wear the sweatpants we saw in the look book. So I guess I did have one positive thing to say about this.
Léa Seydoux: The French actress doesn’t usually do suiting, so this pinstripe Louis Vuitton Fall 2020 suit is a rare treat. With her promo tour for James Bond’s ‘No Time To Die’ film pushed back to April 2021, I don’t feel like this is preview into a new direction for her, as I’m confident it will be glamour all the way while promoting that big budget production. Some might feel the accessories – especially the bag – is a little out of place here, but I’m obsessed with how much energy the boots give to this look.
Laura Harrier: Much like Alicia, Laura never (I’ll now have to revert that to rarely) misses. Yes, there is an element of speed racer about this look, but I feel that she carried the look off well. I would say when it comes to head-to-toe looks, she was the best dressed here. Do you agree?
Natalia Vodianova: The newlywed opted for fashion week over a honeymoon, taking to the front row wearing a windbreaker-style colour-block Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 dress, which doesn’t immediately feel true to her style, but she makes it work. I’m most obsessed about the shoes here. No doubt the honeymoon will come at a later date.
Venus Williams: This look is all about the hair for me. The Louis Vuitton chequered dress is cute enough, but I’m not a fan of the dress paired with the LV monogram accessories, as this is two bold, dominant print competing with each other.
