Paris…Louis Vuitton

Distracting himself from hard economic times, Marc Jacobs kept his head in the clouds – and children’s books—for his F/W 09 Louis Vuitton collection. The pieces, fit for ladies who lunch, were influenced by the fantasy of Wonderland. Asymmetrical ruching, balloon-like hemlines and exaggerated pin-tucked cap sleeves embellished exquisitely tailored suits. Stylized pearls completed this proper feeling; huge versions appeared on an extra-large pin tucked into coiffs of French twists; multiple strands appeared on belts with one stand-out bead in a pop color, which continued onto necklaces and bags. Bendable black satin “rabbit ears” were twisted around teased buns and silk organza “tails” were obscurely placed on looks throughout the collection. Tucks on satin dresses, gathered tops, and tiered skirts looked sweet. Red capes (possibly borrowed from another fairytale…) were molded at the shoulders to create a sculpted, top-heavy silhouette, layered over collaged tulle and satin skirts. Over-the-knee patent lace up boots along with fingerless gloves brought a tough edge to these fanciful looks.

Who new childrens tales could offer so much inspiration and leave much room for creativity? Overall, a fun and wearable collection.
