Pop superstar Rosalia ignited the Louis Vuitton fashion show on Thursday in a colorful children’s apartment setting, stealing the show from the men’s collection made by the studios, for lack of a successor to Virgil Abloh who died at the end of 2021.
Like a ghost, in a down jacket and oversized pants, she wandered around the rooms before getting on the roof of a car and starting her performance.
She slipped through the middle of mannequins parading chaotically in this installation, singing, dancing or jumping on a bed.
Louis Vuitton, orphan of its artistic director of the men’s collections, the American Virgil Abloh who died in November 2021 and who has still not been replaced, has entrusted the collection this season to a collective of creatives.
The filmmakers Michel and Olivier Gondry, the designer Ibrahim Kamara, recently appointed head of the Off-White collections, or the founder of the KidSuper brand, Colm Dillane, were part of this multi-disciplinary project, an approach that was very dear to Virgil Abloh.
For the third time since his death, several people involved in the preparation of this show came out to greet the public at the end of the parade.
Like the staging of the show, the collection was very rich: casual suits in all shades of gray, dot prints (dots) developed in collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, bomber jackets, sparkling outfits… .
On the feet, there were sneakers with large futuristic soles and, on the head, hybrid headgear between cap and balaclava, hats and scarves or aviator helmets.
