The last three centuries have been harder on Marie Antoinette’s kit than on her dear Louis’s Vuitton

The last three centuries have been harder on Marie Antoinette’s kit than on her dear Louis’s  Vuitton. Maybe that says something positive about the progress of women?


Rather than resurrecting her wardrobe whole, Ghesquière lifted the corseted and ruffled bustline of her dresses, added straps, and turned them into harnesses that he slung over wispy dresses in chiffon.

They didn’t work as well as the sequined cocktail frocks that looked like souped-up versions of 18th-century dressing gowns. Even these were teamed with the new LV sneaker, springy of the sole and with an ankle-grazing tongue and pull tab. Ghesquière’s neat trick here was making the past look like the future.
