Louis Vuitton Makeup
Louis Vuitton, one of the most ancient brands in the fashion world, the history of which traces back to the early 1854 and which has survived three centuries in a row, seems to imitate Benjamin Button, living its life back to front, annually growing younger and younger. Actually, in recent years the credit for the brand’s fresh and breezy atmosphere goes largely to one of the most talented and ingenious fashion designers of this generation, Nicolas Ghesquiere, who has gained great respect thanks to his experimental soul and his innate avant-garde style. Today he once again presenting the futuristic and digital Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2016 collection, which was evidently worth the finale day of Paris Fashion Week spring 2016.
Backstage models received transformative looks. For the beauty at Louis Vuitton models wore their hair down with tiny braids and the makeup looks featured a manga-esque play on a cat-eye
Graphic plays on black eyeliner are moving away from a classic winged liquid flick. For inspiration, look no further than the Louis Vuitton runway, where each model wore a different spiky kohl iteration, scribbled on in starburst patterns or sketched into geometric forms.
The digital design of the runway with video screens took us to a place where everything was made of blocks; there was an obvious reference to the popular video game Minecraft but accompanied by an impressive psychological session that was stating to build your own life yourself since your only limit was your imagination, day and night, shine and rain. Those were definitely the very thoughts that had led Nicolas Ghesquiere to build his own castle at Louis Vuitton atelier and transmit to us his utmost fortitude and moral strength by means of his rough and vigorous pieces.
The models were being forwarded down the runway as if realistic warriors, who were relying on their heavy and strong ensembles against the cruel enemies. The leather and heavy chains were predominating in the collection being the best materials to use as a symbol of power and energy. Evidently there were some androgynous elements embracing the entire Louis Vuitton spring 2016 collection, but Ghesquiere, however, had not ignored that he was dealing with fragile and tender ladies.
