Louis Vuitton Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Few designers master the art of time travel like Nicolas Ghesquière. For the last major fashion show before the coronavirus pandemic hit last year, he created a tableau of 200 characters dressed in costumes spanning five centuries.

This season, the designer was back at the Louvre museum with a spectacular history-mashing display, transforming the Passage de Richelieu into a ballroom with mirrored panels reflecting the light of 120 vintage chandeliers, and a vampire-chic collection inspired by brand ambassador Alicia Vikander’s new HBO series.
