Designer Nicolas Ghesquière was influenced by Brazil and with the Olympics heading to Rio this summer, a collection of athleisure sportswear infused with the luxury of Louis Vuitton.
Brightly hued windbreakers, scuba suits, and crush worthy basketball shorts with the LV monogram emblazoned on the sides. Sheath dresses with prints of football players and tiered sequined ruffles was a literal homage to Brazil’s football legacy. Deconstructed color-blocked scuba dresses and accessories where among the highlights.
