Nicolas Ghesquière‘s Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2020 collection throws back to the late 1800s by encapsulating Paris‘ beautiful Belle Époque era. Ghesquière explains to Vogue, “It’s a part of French history that’s very interesting in art, as well as culturally, in terms of emancipation of women, and, of course, in literature with Proust.”
Set by one of the city’s most historic monuments, the French fashion house’s runway presentation took place at Cour Carrée of the Louvre. A number of famous faces were spotted at the show’s front row, including Chloe Grace Moretz, Alicia Vikander and rising K-Pop group ITZY.

This year’s line showcased an array of looks highlighting pouf sleeves, flowy dresses, skirts and sophisticated suits. The design of each and every outfit incorporates vibrant floral prints and intricate patterns.
