Louis Vuitton showcased its fall collection on a virtual tour of the Louvre Museum on Wednesday, closing the Paris Fashion Week online shows by framing designs that echoed the sculptures on display.
Vuitton was one of several luxury brands that paid tribute to cultural institutions closed by the pandemic, which has also put live parades on hold.
Christian Dior, who like Vuitton is owned by conglomerate LVMH, earlier this week filmed his own show at the 17th-century Palace of Versailles.
Vuitton’s show of ruffled skirts and oversized futuristic jackets was accompanied by a Daft Punk soundtrack, just weeks after the celebrated French electronic music duo announced their separation.
The models wore boots with a cowboy edge, with zippers on the sides.
Vuitton’s exclusive monogrammed bags featured Greco-Roman busts and lithographs inspired by the engravings of Italian artist Piero Fornasetti. Another bag took the form of a Roman-style coin.
