1 colour, 5 crushes: blue

This season, blue washes over our collections in a palette of infinite hues – from the most pastel to the brightest. Get ready to be obsessed. You can start right here with our bluest crushes of the moment.

An underlying theme of the spring/summer 2023 collection, blue comes in every form this season. “Between tradition and anticonformity, it’s an obvious choice. The blue of the shorts brings sea mist to mind. The pastel of the padded jackets echoes the sky. The knitwear is crafted in a calm blue. The denims are dyed a pastel blue. Sporty, elegant, neutral or atypical, blue frees itself in gradations and contrasts,” points out Olivier Richaud, our men’s and women’s stylist.

It’s not every day that we can admire Basquiat’s work (in person). This year, it’s possible at the Fondation Louis Vuitton during the “Basquiat x Warhol: À quatre mains” exhibition, from 5 April to 28 August 2023. The perfect opportunity to (re)discover this painting.
