It all started with a cocktail near Casino square at 17:30 sharp. Louis Vuitton Monaco had invited only a hand full of carefully selected media, fashionistas and celebrities to attend the world´s first LV fashion show in Monaco. The streets around Hotel de Paris were packed with huge black Limousines, all with a simple but powerful sign saying “LOUIS VUITTON”. All the cars were needed later because the fashion show started at 7pm on the Place du Palais on the “rock”, Monaco-Ville.
Romy and I arrived super early all dressed up in and for Louis Vuitton. Romy was in her tiger high heels and a silk top together with the big Louis Vuitton Miroir Alma Bag in gold.
I decided to also wear a limited edition bag from the Miroir Collection but I opted for the silver version. I combined it with Converse style Swarovski shoes, sweat pants from Uniqlo, camoflage Blazer from Zara and my new LOUIS shirt I bought the day before in Cannes.
The set up was amazing. People thought it will be IN the palace but it was actually in front of the main entrance in a specially built glass house.
Princess Charlene looked stunning and relaxed, she definitely enjoyed the show and the attention she got from the audience and invited press. I personally was surprised that Prince Albert and Princess Caroline´s son Pierre also showed up and took place right next to Bernard Arnaud, owner of the LVMH group.
Now, whats new? What has changed since Marc Jacobs has left and Nicolas Ghesquiere became creative director of the house of Louis Vuitton?
The cruise collection for 2015 reflects Ghesquiere´s strong character. He is very talented and tough and won’t give up before his exact vision becomes reality. Its refreshing unconventional and real, exactly what we need…
“Never forget that what becomes timeless was once truly new”
“What I find most interesting in fashion is that it has to reflect our time… People used to define me as a futurist designer, but, you know, the future is now for me.”
