There is no crystal ball to define the future of fashion, but we approach prescience whenever forward-thinking designers like Nicolas Ghesquière present collections. For Fall/Winter 2015 at Louis Vuitton, Ghesquière’s vision pierced into space, adding up to a futuristic ensemble of clothes for the well-heeled. Amid a crop of salable, sensational furs and Argentinian sheepskin coats lay pioneering looks that advanced the brand ahead of the competition.

Hyper-modern ribbed separates with fluted cuffs and hemlines helped define the new direction at Louis Vuitton, as did puff-sleeved blouses and foiled frocks, and the tension of geometric embroidery and prints. They caused as much of a stir as the new Louis Vuitton accessory, a miniature handheld trunk that reworked a signature 1940s product into smaller sizes outfitted with gleaming hardware. Ghesquière called them “digital toolboxes”. The designer also presented crinkly body-conscious dresses with scalloped hemlines, leather minis inset with lace, fitted suits paired with logo-splashed tees, and a variety of luxe bombers. A year ago, Ghesquière paved his path at Louis Vuitton with a throwback to 1970s style (and literally everyone else followed suit in some fashion or another). This season, he looks ahead, imagining what women will want to wear in the fall, or even years from now. We’ve seen the future at Louis Vuitton, and it looks splendid.
