Ludovic de Saint Sernin’s Fall/Winter 2024 collection is an important moment for the brand as it debuts its first-ever runway show outside of Paris, in New York City. Inspired by the artist Robert Mapplethorpe, this collection serves as an homage to the artist’s legacy, exploring themes of beauty, sensuality, and artistic expression.

Partnering with the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Ludovic de Saint Sernin draws from Mapplethorpe’s archive of imagery and transforms them into fashion pieces, from delicate floral motifs to evocative leather ensembles.

The collection plays with the dichotomous worlds of ‘New York squalor’ and ‘New York glamour,’ a theme relevant in Mapplethorpe’s own life and work. From opulent trench coats in rich calfskin to asymmetrical leather shift adorned with intricate embroideries, the collection captures Mapplethorpe’s multifaceted persona.

Based on Mapplethorpe’s affinity for power and seduction, leather plays a central role in the collection, as a canvas for bold experimentation and boundary-pushing design in each piece, from the Cleavage bralette to the daring bumster pants.
