Louis Vuitton's FW18 collection is here, directly from Paris. The collection, which showed in the glass-roofed courtyard of the Louvre museum, relied heavily upon yellow motifs, fringe, sequins, and structured garments to create a moody and playful tone for the fall season. Nicolas Ghesquière centered his latest collection for Louis Vuitton around military-inspired jackets, color blocking, argyle prints, bold lapels, and shearling outerwear that reflected the items' surroundings and embodied classic Parisian style. The collection is daring and no-holds-barred in its approach, not shying away from accents of bright color, bold prints, and unconventional layering. Louis Vuitton is dressing the powerful woman.

Ghesquière strayed away from his more athleticwear-inspired aesthetic to go back to the basics of what makes LV a legacy brand, dazzling us with the perfect adieu to the last days of fashion month. The classic elements of the house combined with a slightly grungier, bolder aesthetic are what we've come to expect from the designer, and this season certainly did not disappoint. To view the entire collection, check out the slideshow below.
