Louis Vuitton Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière has always had an obsession with the future. Since his early days in design, technology and futurism have shaped and transformed his vision of women’s dressing. At Vuitton, Ghesquière’s Space Age designs are infused with retro nostalgia. For fall, cropped 1960s silhouettes with heavy metal embroidery deliver a modern, referential take on power suiting. However, the real techie standout is the Motherboard handbag, which mimics the inside of an intricate mechanical device with microchips aplenty. Shown in the brand’s new Crown Frame shape, the bag has a distinctive ’50s ladylike form that juxtaposes its stark external appearance—a contrast that also encapsulates Ghesquière’s young but powerful tenure at the French house thus far.
