Louis Vuitton mixed art and show business by hosting its Fall/Winter 2022 fashion collection at Paris’s d’Orsay Museum (it was the first runway show ever at the museum), where models strutted among marble and bronze sculptures.

Opened by ‘’Squid Games’’ star and Louis Vuitton global brand ambassador HoYeon Jung, the Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection was inspired by youth, specifically the period of adolescence.
In the show notes, Ghesquière called the collection “an excursion into a perceptible, fleeting, and decisive moment when everything comes to the fore, in all its innocence and insight. The impermanence and beautiful volatility of adolescence”. Ghesquière’s homage to adolescence was printing button-down shirts and polos with fashion photographer David Sims’ raw portraiture from the 1990s – the photographer came of age in the 1990s like Ghesquière himself.
For the rest, oversized silhouettes dominated the runway, along with dresses layered over chunky sweaters. Mesh dresses with airbrushed argyle designs and colorful loose threads furthered the crafty aesthetic while androgynous tailoring and oversized tailored silhouettes were contrasted with soft, embroidered knits and school-girl tweeds.
It was very modern-day Annie Hall, for the new generation.
