Louis Vuitton
 “The Louvre’s evolution from fortress to royal palace to museum took centuries, but time is flattened inside. That was the motivating concept behind Ghesquière’s new collection, which combined the frock coats of its royal palace phase with elevated versions of the athletic clothes and sneakers that tourists pad around it in today. Speaking afterward, Ghesquière said, ‘I thought anachronism was interesting. How today can we incorporate pieces considered as costume into an everyday wardrobe. . .?’ Ghesquière’s neat trick here was making the past look like the future.” —Nicole Phelps
