Tune in at 01:30am Singapore time on 8 March


Is strength a design ethos? What about valour, dissent, ambiguity? Because those are the polarising patter we would free associate with Nicolas Ghesquière's Louis Vuitton. A year ago, he brought the future to the present — not just with a love song to Final Fantasy nobody saw coming but with Jaden Smith's high profile campaign signalling the rise of nepotism. His spring/summer 2017 collection was a scratch of '80s, fused with just as many superhero references as Working Girl nuances, expressing in no uncertain terms for whom he designs. Whatever his message will be in the upcoming fall/winter show, we're all ears. Come back later at 01:30am.
