Game on is the Resort 2021 collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton. The title contains all the essence of the clothes, which encourage an approach to fashion with an amused and curious spirit, which can help us to let go and not to think, especially in this dramatic period that we are all experiencing.
The spirit of the game is skilfully evoked in the colorful graphics and in the combinations between the garments that seem almost blindly combined, without logic, precisely dominated more by fun and instinct than by rational thinking.
Here then to the classic monogram of the maison are added floral prints, abstract geometric elements, stripes and collars casual and light ruffles. The contrasts is evoked by antithetical juxtapositions – oversized jackets on slim trousers, decollete combined with streetwear style, boiysh traits that, contrary to the definition itself, accentuate the shapes, such as ties used as a belt or as a scarf.
The collection inspires us to create new combinations that go even beyond the proposals presented by Ghesquière. Definitely a positive and lively approach to contrasting the harshness and roughness of the pandemic.
