Louis Vuitton hits high note with all-singing Paris fashion show


PARIS: Louis Vuitton ended Paris fashion week with one of its most sublime shows, a “clash of epochs” extravaganza at the Louvre museum featuring a 200-person choir in period costumes that went from the 15th century to the 1950s.

Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere hired Stanley Kubrick´s multi-Oscar-winning costume ace Milena Canonero — who dressed both “Barry Lyndon” and “A Clockwork Orange” — to put together a five-storey living backdrop to the show, with music exhumed from forgotten 18th-century master Nicolas de Grigny.
