With a brand so closely aligned with the concept of luxury, Louis Vuitton constantly is under the critical eye of the fashion world – and, as we have seen time and time again, Louis Vuitton does not disappoint.

For Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection, designer Nicolas Ghesquière used his impressive talents with state-of-the-art construction techniques and his love of modern fabrics to create a fashion juxtaposition of ‘60s and ‘70s glam and contemporary chic.

The ‘60s and ‘70s influences were seen in the Boho-inspired peasant dresses, luxe velvet, flared denim with contrast orange stitching, and an assortment of nostalgic, whimsical prints that included old-school blow dryers, vintage cars, and LV bags.

Knitwear was integral to the collection–capitalizing on the latest textile technology, with seamlessly executed textural stripes to create a playful mix with of patterns. Intricately wrought multi-textured crochet and lace dresses– some played against slick, patterned eel — hung from the body in classic baby doll-style designs.

The ornate patterns seen throughout the collection mined the brand’s rich history, but Ghesquière balanced this concept with contemporary zip-front peplum jackets and a quilted motorcycle jacket that translated to the modern day.

But instead of heavily focusing on creating new silhouettes for the garments, Ghesquière decided to focus instead on the fabrications used in the pieces, which resulted in the creative use of velvet, plastic knits, leather, and sequins.

Ghesquière’s designs have created a wardrobe-building template for any woman seeking to expand her closet.

These stylish pieces are sure to be a great hit among the fashion-savvy.
