Paris Spring 2013: Louis Vuitton
(PARIS) Louis Vuitton
It's a mod, mod world! Marc Jacobs ended PFW succinctly and brilliantly with a check-heavy, stripe-ridden collection that was as concise as it was imaginative. A peppier, preppier take on the sixties than his eponymous collection, the shapes were mostly limited to kicky minidresses, long maxi gowns, and mid-length skirting in a straight, sixties silhouette, and that was perfectly alright. Black and white, yellow and white, beige and white, grey and white—you get the picture. An ultra-graphic, blown-up floral motif on some green and white looks was the only print deviation, but that just made that story all the more impactful. Once again, a splendid season from Jacobs—one that the front row is not likely to forget anytime soon.
