Paris Fashion Week SS 2013: Louis Vuitton

Monday, 8 October 2012

Marc Jacobs did it again! After the stripe-filled runway for his namesake brand during New York Fashion Week, he kept his idea of straightforward patterns with checks for Louis Vuitton in Paris. Straight lines, cropped jackets, sixties inspired rectangular dresses and colorful checkers were the rule on the runway, thus keeping true to his current vision and correlating this collection to the one presented in New York. While giant checks seem to be quite an odd choice of pattern, it was no random choice, as it corresponds to an enlarged version of the traditional centuries old logo of the House. Thus the designer manages to bring a new feeling to the brand, while still keeping its roots in sight.

The show was spectacular as usual, the models appearing two by two down four escalators onto a colorful runway paved with giant acid yellow and white squares. The styling was also very sixties with accentuated eyes and beehive hairdos. The shoes were very simple pointed satin pumps with low metallic heels. Among my favorite looks are definitely the first two ones in the opening photo: the image is surreal, the garments simply seem to be blending in the pattern on the floor, the models appear like holograms rising from the runway. Here is a selection of the most interesting looks from the runway:

 And here are some photos of the fabulous runway:

I hope I didn't bore you with too many photos, but I really liked the collection and the runway! And what can I say more about the bags... oh those small, perfect bags, didn't you just love them the second you laid eyes on them? What were your favorite looks?

I love LV and MJ is always genius in his creativity but I saw the show on livestream and there was 1 thing that particularly disliked and that was the music. As for the collection itself I was more impressed by the previous ones, the shoes are far too pointy and kitten heel for me and yellow and brown are definitely not my colors... on a positive note I love the doll hair style &make up :)
