Nicolas Ghesquière envisions a “future archaeology” for the Autumn-Winter 2016 Women’s Fashion Show scenography. Watch the show now on http://www.louisvuitton.com.
An archaeology which unearths the future. An underwater futurist city like the lost city of Atlantis – a city of glass mirrored relics that are unearthed, damaged and partially destroyed. Broken classical relics of a technophiliac future, pre-smashed and pre-ruined. The installation is housed in a series of black geometric structures that appear to have crash landed into one another in the Bois de Boulogne by the side of the Foundation Louis Vuitton. Ghesquière views the structures as ‘space shadows’, black voids in the sky. The mirror-columns, composed of concrete and shattered mirrors, are a reinterpretation of artist Justin Morin’s «Melted Bones» (Born in 1979 in France, the artist works & resides in Paris).
