Paris: Following last season’s boldly geometric mod presentation, Marc Jacobs decided to take a far quieter approach at Louis Vuitton with looks reminiscent of the boudoir-influenced pieces he showed for his own collection in New York. Low-key glamour and a secretive nature dominated in Paris, the models clad in silky camisole dresses, pajama sets and velvet dressing gowns, some hidden beneath upscale minks or gorgeous plaid overcoats trimmed in dégradé sequins. The ensembles shown without cover-ups were seductive, ranging from body-conscious slip dresses crafted from both daytime wool and lace to retro pencil skirt and sweater combos. Jacobs kept his palette soft, using dusty plums, icy blues and blush for a calm mood extending all the way into evening, where Kate Moss appeared in a dramatically sheer gown embroidered with feathery petal appliqué.—Nina Stotler
