Louıs Vuıtton’s Band Instrument Brooches Blared ın Parıs

Classic forms of band instruments when conceptualizing the jewelry for theLouis Vuitton’s fall 2023 collection.

Models walked the runway in Paris earlier this week wearing chunky knitwear and scarves pinned with intricately articulated brooches (and a pendant necklace or two) depicting the French horn, the trumpet, the flute, the baritone, and the sousaphone.

It was thrilling to see the bold and subversively quaint pieces in a fashion season that’s seen a decline in exciting and notable jewelry in general. And I love that Ghesquière elevated band instruments, motifs that have long been relegated to novelty jewelry makers (who wears trumpet brooches aside from high school band directors.
