Earlier this month, Louis Vuitton unwrapped Chapter 1 of its Spring/Summer 2020 campaign. Set adrift along the sunny shores of Morocco, the visuals depict models reliving boyhood dreams; reenacting a series of different scenarios that play into the lookbook’s intended theme. With that said, the high-fashion house returns once more, this time bringing to light the second part of its warm-weather editorial.
Visuals from Chapter 2 come at the hands of talented photographer, Leonce Raphael Agbodjélou, and is shot entirely in his native Republic of Benin. A wide range of African-inspired tapestry’s reinforce Virgil Abloh’s minimalist designs, creating an optical harmony pleasing to the eye. Soft shades of blue, pink, and grey adhere to seasonal-friendly hues and can be found piercing, not only the house’s statement garb, but an assembly of accessories also on offer.
Abloh’s use of florals is upheld in Chapter 2, finding ways to infiltrate billowy overcoats and tent-like trousers, while also finding a home on leather tote bags and compact cross-body pouches. In relation to the former, real-life bouquets can even be seen blooming out from antique ceramics and branded boots.
