First Class Boarding Now...
Gilded Coat: Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2012
To cap off Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012/2013, Marc Jacobs showed his vision for Louis Vuitton. The collection read like a love letter to the house's travel-luggage origins--down to the real live steam engine that barreled down the runway at the start of the show. There were porters to carry the models' bags, like First Class-traveling DIVAS getting off the Paris-Venice express. The collection was very "retro" but still "Marc Jacobs Modern"--showing references to the early 1900's, 20's, 30's--very turn-of-the-century: ankle-length skirts, high hats, elongated jackets...some of the clothes were even stitched in a checkerboard pattern reminiscent of the iconic Damier that covers Vuitton trunks. The clothes were luxuriously detailed: giant jeweled brooches served as the buttons for coats, and sparkling appliques adorned lurex-threaded brocades that had been made by hand.
Printed Traveler: Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2012
Some of these clothes, yes, will end up in all the Louis Vuitton boutiques around the world (a lot is just for the runway show of course) and maybe, just maybe, a millionaire's girlfriend will buy one of those printed coats, but naturally, it will all be about the accessories:
