Louis Vuitton - Pre-Fall 2008
(NEW YORK) For the Louis Vuitton pre-fall collection, Marc Jacobs mixed class with sass. Tailored suits and sexy dresses alternated between elegant neutrals and colors that popped, giving looks a retro flair and sporty ease. Draping played an integral role in the collection, adding contour and pizzazz. A deep V-frock in navy and black was sexy without being risqué while a long cream coat was sophisticated and stunning. Never one to bore, Jacobs paired a grey wool skirt-suit with a multicolored leaf-print silk blouse and blue leather gloves. Bustier stitching on a black velvet dress was an interesting detail that was uniquely Marc.
