If one sentiment can be derived from Louis Vuitton FW19, it's that more is more. In an age of devout minimalism, creative director Nicolas Ghesquière brings forth a truly maximalist show, experimenting with a slew of loud patterns and fabrics complemented by dynamic silhouettes. The collection, titled "geolocated," is inspired by the Centre Pompidou, which Ghesquière described as "a place where expression is free to be." The collection is undeniably urban-inspired, gathering inspiration from the streets of Paris. "The cliques, the styles, the life ... I love that impression of a sartorial melting pot," the designer described in his show notes.

In the last show of Paris Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton embodied free expression, going outside the brand's typical aesthetic while staying loyal to the bare bones of what makes the fashion house a legacy brand — classic tailoring with a wearable quality all its own. It's true — you will probably see these clothes everywhere, from cafés to the Met Gala. Standout pieces from the collection include watercolor floral dresses, capes and jackets with signature LV-monogrammed linings, and a yellow and black leather checked skirt that keeps in line with other projected trends from the runway this season. Louis Vuitton FW19 is fresh, forward-thinking, and truly inspired — it could not be a more grandiose adieu to Fashion Month.
