An Insider's Guide To The Louis Vuitton Resort 2019 Collection
Louis Vuitton always puts on the most thought-provoking runway shows, and for its resort collection, the French house certainly did not disappoint. Society friend and Style Disrupter of this year's Tatler Fashion Awards 2018, Fanty Soenardy, got a first-hand look at the beautiful collection in St. Paul-de-Vence, France.
Here's what our Tatler correspondent had to say.
"I'm really excited to be invited to the Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse to learn how Louis Vuitton fragrances are made."
"We're in luck! “These beautiful roses that are used in the making of the perfumes only bloom in May for a short three weeks!."
"My good friend Angelina Choo (left) and I really concentrating on the perfume immersion course... P.S. I probably was thinking about dinner."
"Meet FanT, my new perfume line out next spring—just kidding!"
"Arriving at Fondation Maeght in St.Paul-de-Vence for the Louis Vuitton Resort 2019 presentation and what a welcoming sight this was! I love a good outdoor jazz performance."
"Star struck! I managed to snag a shot with Hollywood actress Jennifer Connelly, who is also the muse and face of Louis Vuitton."
"I noticed this tall, good-looking guy and I approached him for a photo without even knowing who he was. It was only after sending this picture to my daughter that I realised that Mr. Friendly is actually Oh Se-hun, member of Korean-Chinese boy band EXO. Boy, was my daughter upset she wasn't at the show with me! Don't quote me on this, but I think he might be sporting something from the up-and-coming menswear collection by Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton!"
"Hands down, my absolute favourite look from the show."
"The amazing Nicolas Ghesquiére taking his bow as the crowd cheered him on."
"At the re-see and yup, I need this dress in my life. It’s got everything I love—prints, textures and just a hint of sexiness."
"Loving these boots, but wondering if they would be too long for me... #crying."
"This tie-dyed croco Petite Malle with what looks like a tribal shoulder strap is amazing!"
"And of course I would like the matching jacket, thank you very much."
"With the man of the hour himself, Louis Vuitton's Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquiére."
