It was a rootin'-tootin' Wild West meets melting pot America extravaganza at the recent Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2024 men’s show, where musician-turned-designer Pharrell Williams unveiled his highly-anticipated sophomore collection.

The show, set against the dramatic silhouette of the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, masterfully channeled Americana, with Native American designs mixing with modern luxury and showcasing Williams’ unique vision for the powerhouse.


Celebrity guests including the stars of Maestro, Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan, as well as Lupin's leading man Omar Sy, who gathered to witness a boulder-laden landscape that evoked the rugged terrains of an idealised America.

The collection itself was a vibrant celebration of the American spirit, dripping in the famed confidence of Williams - a lauded music star who is a newcomer to fashion design at this level.


The designs emphasised loose proportions, reflecting a modern take on classic American silhouettes. Models - male and female - strutted down the runway in leather cowboy hats, cowhide valises, and checkered denim jackets adorned with bull badges, their cowboy boots boasting shiny metal points.

Rodeo jackets shimmered with intricate embroideries, showcasing the luxurious craftsmanship synonymous with the LVMH-owned brand.

The show also highlighted the dazzling Vegas-style suiting - jackets with glimmering stripes paired with flared pants, exuding an energy reminiscent of the city’s iconic Strip, as well as a statement-making gangster-style fur coat, in bold reinterpretations of traditional Western wear.
