Louis Vuitton: Giant gestures
The video projection of a flame-haired singer with a powerful voice mesmerised the audience at the Louis Vuitton show that closed the Paris Spring/Summer 2020 season.
A mighty head was blown up to the width of the vast show area inside the Paris Louvre. This presentation by transgender Scottish artist Sophie was typical of Vuitton: monumental.
Below the image of the performer, telling the audience that ‘It’s Okay to Cry’, was a small door, out of which the models appeared, Alice in Wonderland style, crisscrossing the open runway. It was like looking down from high above at the ant-like movement of people.
