Paris: Louis Vuitton took a whimsical view of 60s inspirations popular right now, infusing classics like cocoon overcoats and matched skirt suits with cartoon touches. Exaggeration was key, from enlarged proportions and playful animal prints in brushed mohair to childish peter pan collars rendered in white fur. Grounded by dresses, the collection maintained a round silhouette throughout, adding hips to slick leather motorcycle jackets and creating volume with fluffy patch pockets. Quirky accessories like miniature berets and cylindrical leather bags drove the subversively cute message home further while pointy mini mouse heels seemed prim but sweet.—Nina Stotler
