Artist  Justin Morin   did the show space design for Louis Vuitton ‘s Fall Winter 2016 runway in collaboration with  Nicolas Ghesquiere.  The set-up consists of 3 different structures: a  cube, a dome, a pyramid and contains  57 columns made of poplar wood (poplar composes the wooden frame of all Louis Vuitton trunks),  200 000 pieces of hand-fixed shattered mirrors ,  460ml of lighting cables,  35 tons of dyed gravel and   80 craftsmen worked on the columns. Nicolas Ghesquiere envisions a “future archaeology” for Autumn-Winter 2016 Women’s Fashion Show scenography. An archaeology which unearths the future. An underwater futurist city like the lost city of Atlantis – a city of glass mirrored relics that are unearthed, damaged and partially destroyed. Broken classical relics of a technophiliac future, pre-smashed and pre-ruined. The installation is housed in a series of black geometric structures that appear to have crash landed into one another in the Bois de Boulogne by the side of the Foundation Louis Vuitton. Ghesquiere views the structures as ‘space shadows’, black voids in the sky. The mirror-columns, composed of concrete and shattered mirrors, are a reinterpretation of artist Justin Morin’s «Melted Bones» (Born in 1979 in France, the artist works & resides in Paris http://www.justinmorin.net/ ). Justin Morin worked in collaboration with the Nicolas Ghesquiere for the Autumn-Winter 2016 Women’s Fashion Show scenography. –  from Louis Vuitton See more after the jump:
