Of an evening or in the night, at home or somewhere else, a woman steps into the shoes of the grandes dames of design, seeking divine inspiration. Her only companions are her favourite fixtures and the Louis Vuitton Evening collection. The beautiful night creature sketches feverishly, tearing up her first attempts, then finding the perfect stroke. From dark is drawn light, and the incisive arch of a Louis Vuitton shoe guides her to design at its most exquisite.
Velvety mary janes bejewelled with feather-and-crystal brooches, exquisite ballet flats with a golden bow or paved with black paste jewels, sandals and strappy pumps delicately circled in leather lamé, satin salomés in flirty shades with a discreet trace of sparkling shine. These shoes are all part of her most cherished collection. Her favourite? The slippers with the House initials, their masculine air brightened with polished touches.
No affectations for this woman of taste, just a gilded minaudière with voluptuous pendant. The clutches are of lamé fabric or patent leather, with mirror-bright clasps. Crystal-pavé sunglasses, bracelets and choker in openwork metal, wool and silk Monogram shawls, crackled resin necklace, SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS and velvet ribbons are the accessory symbols of her treasured Evening. An aesthete of luxury, a lover of lines, she stops only to stretch out and savour, enamoured of the spirit of the night.
