A round-up of our favourite runway venues from the past.

١. Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s SS23 for Men was as whimsical as it gets: catwalk inspired by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’s yellow brick road. 

٢. Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo created a skatepark in London’s Marylebone neighbourhood to show off their rule-breaking version of the traditional gentleman’s sporting club for their Men’s SS16.

٣. Chloé

The Chloe Fall 2019 was a tribute to the late designer Karl Lagerfeld and was designed as an exploration of the heart’s intimate landscapes.

٤. Casablanca

Casablanca SS23 Runway Show design for ‘Futuro Optimisto’ in Paris, where they utilized a horse pen stage setting to showcase its western-inspired collection.

٥. Dries Van Noten

The Dries Van Noten SS23 show projected the underground subcultures as it overlooked the Parisian cityscape. The finale included an air-tube installation embellished with the collection’s prints.
