Nicolas Ghesquière has quite the affinity for science fiction. In previous seasons, we’ve seen the designer and creative director pay homage to Star Wars and Ghost in the Shell, but now the Louis Vuitton lead is giving a nod to Netflix’s current it-series, Stranger Things.
During LV’s SS18 runway show at Paris Fashion Week, Ghesquière had model Sora Choi don a T-shirt highlighting the Stranger Things kids. Elsewhere, he resurrected elements from aristocratic frocks, which were spotted alongside elaborate embroidery, silky running shorts and patent leather jeans.
This isn’t the first time the LV designer has expressed his appreciation for the series, however, as last year Ghesquière went so far as to invite the cast to Louis Vuitton’s headquarters.
So, do you think you’re as pumped as Nicolas Ghesquière for the upcoming second season of Stranger Things?
