Louis Vuitton to Show Resort 2015 in Monaco

-------

Louis Vuitton

Style.com learned today that Louis Vuitton will be holding its first-ever cruise destination show for the Resort 2015 season. The far-flung locale of choice? Good old glamorous Monaco. The move is indicative of Vuitton’s newfound dedication to ready-to-wear following its appointment of creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, who debuted his first collection for the house earlier this month during Paris fashion week. More generally, this is also proof of the expanding role of runway shows.

Chanel, who’s previously presented its cruise and Metiers d’Art ranges in Versailles, Monaco, Singapore, Dallas, Scotland, and beyond, is headed to Dubai come May; Nicola Formichetti is hosting his first show for Diesel in Venice next month; and Dior jetted guests to Monaco (seeing a trend here?) for its Resort 2014 outing. Moschino, too, jumped on the destination bandwagon and premiered its Resort 2014 collection in Shanghai.

What does all this mean? While it’s no doubt lovely to be an editor at one of these exotic events, houses’ choice to raise their shows’ profiles by holding them in exciting locations proves these runway spectacles are more about advertising, brand image, and engaging the international public than ever before. Not to mention, we’re sensing a little competition between fashion’s heavy hitters. What’s next—catwalking on the moon?

Louis Vuitton Fall 2014

We waited for months and it was over in moments—Nicolas Ghesquière’s wildly anticipated debut show for Louis Vuitton marched down the runway in Paris this morning. And at the height of the LV by NG frenzy, the house sent us an exclusive first look at A Dozen Girls, a series of photographs by Juergen Teller. Shot at the brand’s headquarters, the portfolio presents twelve looks from the new collection on twelve models. CLICK TO VIEW THE SLIDESHOW. As the show notes declared, “The timeless is now.”

Fun With Fur at Yves Salomon

-------

Yves Salomon

Yves Salomon, the fourth-generation Parisian furrier known for supplying furs to such houses as Dior, Prada, and Louis Vuitton, may have been founded in the 1920s, but that doesn’t mean it’s strictly old school. Under its own name, the brand presents six lines designed by the Salomon clan’s youngest member, Thomas. These collections comprise everything from accessories to the top-of-the-range 245 Saint Honoré to the more accessible Meteo, as well as the “bobo” rive gauche classic Army Fur, military jackets, and beyond. Running a research and development studio, Yves Salomon works with more than a hundred different types of skins (think badger, marmot, mink, lynx, sable, fox, and chinchilla) and experiments with dyes, cuts, shears, and patterns for its signature light and elegant silhouettes.

For Fall ’14, Salomon wanted to present a “younger way to wear fur—something more irreverent, that can be worn with a cool attitude.” His favorite piece, a dusty gray mink coat with a brown mink cuff, raccoon hem, and shearling block-cut back, epitomized the Fall collection’s edgy vibe. Other standouts included a clever short-sleeved top in teal mink with a zip in the back, which could be worn back-to-front as a jacket, and a panther-patterned, ink-printed pony-calf coat with a belted waist. For those who favor the classics, Salomon offered a simply gorgeous red fox coat. But girls looking for something wild were well taken care of, too—a two-tone polka-dot burgundy-and-black mink and a teal-and-black fold-over clutch were particularly out of the ordinary.

Yves Salomon is stocked worldwide by Opening Ceremony, Harrods, Matches, and Browns London, among others.

EXCLUSIVE: A First Look at Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Teaser

The wait is almost over. Tomorrow at 10 a.m. Paris time, Nicolas Ghesquière will unveil his debut collection for Louis Vuitton, the most anticipated show of this, or perhaps any, season. Despite the speculation that has swirled around town all week, the house has managed to keep a tight lid on what to expect. Here then, direct from Louis Vuitton headquarters on the rue du Pont Neuf, is your first hint of the shape of things to come. The enigmatic image of the model Rianne, shot by Juergen Teller and poised somewhere on the knife edge of innocence and chic, probably raises more questions than it answers, but let the guessing begin. And be sure to tune in tomorrow at 10 a.m. CET (4 a.m. EST) for our full coverage of the show, including more exclusive behind-the-scenes photographs by Teller.
