Nicolas Ghesquière created an exquisitely modern collection for Louis Vuitton SS21. The creative director wondered: what does an in-between garment look like? What kind of cut can dissolve masculine and feminine? What wardrobe might s/he look good in? A fascinating new exploration for fashion, and the promise of a great journey that Louis Vuitton sets out to discover by abolishing these last boundaries. “This is but the beginning of a reflection that is open, stimulating and fundamentally conscious”, the press notes stated.

Louis Vuitton SS21
While wondering what an inclusive world would look like, Nicolas Ghesquière focused on the zone between masculinity and femininity. It resulted in a collection that will find approval from Gen Z. Inspired by Wim Wenders’s famous movie ‘Wings of Desire’, Ghesquière focused on the zone between femininity and masculinity. According to him, nonbinary people provide freedom for all of us. We should take their way of life as an example. Therefore, Louis Vuitton’s SS21 wardrobe isn’t masculine nor feminine. It’s somewhere in between.
This rationale shows Ghesquière is one of fashion’s most forward-thinkers. Despite the pandemic, clothes and shows haven’t changed much. We’ve seen many new trends and different interpretations of escapism, but Ghesquière is one of the few to look for something deeper. While he states he doesn’t know how fashion will change, he knows inclusivity will only become more important; the freedom to be who you want to be. He couldn’t be more on point. Check out some of the best looks below.
