Louis Vuitton brings sneaker boots and a riot of prints to its Resort 2019 show

Expect a whole lot of fun, colourful prints and mask-like sunnies for next year's resort season
 

 

After Chanel, Prada and Dior, fashion house Louis Vuitton presented its Resort 2019 collection Monday, May 28 at the Marguerite and Aimé Maeght Foundation near Saint-Paul de Vence in the South of France. Sometimes highly feminine, sometimes androgynous, Louis Vuitton's Resort 2019 woman has several sides, always laced with a sense of freedom and carried with confidence.

 

 

Prints were legion in the Louis Vuitton Resort 2019 collection, with polka dots, stripes, graphic patterns, flowers and abstract motifs. Whether all-over patterns or in smaller touches, and with shiny fabrics or pastel hues, prints were the stars of this Resort 2019 show, reflecting its many inspirations.

 

 

Designer Nicolas Ghesquière -- artistic director of Louis Vuitton women's collections -- also played with volumes in this mid-season show, with some close-cut creations plus fuller pieces and layering effects using various materials.

The Resort 2019 collection featured many accessories, with hats -- in both sophisticated and wilder styles -- belts, mask-like sunglasses and extra-large earrings. As for footwear, Louis Vuitton picked thigh boots as the mid-season star, with flat, chunky, sneaker-like soles, creating a futuristic style with a sporty feel.
