Louis Vuitton‘s 200 Year Anniversary topped off a month of fashion shows with an immaculate finale full of archive pieces from different eras.
LV showcased full glam at the last show at Paris Fashion Week to celebrate 200 years since the birth of the designer.
Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director of the brand, scoured the archives to create a string of looks at The Louvre.
The show took place at the Passage Richelieu which was apparently used by Louis Vuitton for his meetings with Empress Eugénie, for whom he was the exclusive trunk maker.
Models glided down the runway in sweeping capes, flapper dresses, and tail coats worn with skinny jeans – which embodies the evolution of generations throughout fashion.
‘I like the figure of a vampire who travels through the ages, adapting to dress codes of the era,’ Nicholas says in the pre-show press release – ELLE reports.
As if the show could not have been drama-filled enough, an Extinction Rebellion activist stormed the catwalk in the middle of the show.
The woman held a banner printed with ‘Overconsumption = Extinction’ – but despite their efforts to distract the audience, nothing could steal the show and the woman was quickly escorted by security off the catwalk.
The security guard who escorted the runway trespasser joined Ghesquière as he took his closing bow.
