New York: Marc Jacobs continued his exploration of the 1970s with strong 20s and 30s undertones (eras which influenced 70s style) for his Pre-Fall collection for Louis Vuitton. High-waisted, flared-leg pants remained, but were joined by extra-wide cuffed versions that looked fresh and exciting. Slim leather pants offered a body-hugging alternative. A recent exhibit of artist Louise Bourgeois’ textiles inspired stripes and color blocking, which appeared for stunning sweaters and pieced outerwear. The 70s meets 30s decadence that characterized S/S 11 evolved with luxurious fur scarves, outsize feathered earrings and a black flapper gown dripping with beads. Design director Julie de Libran described the collection as a “liberated wardrobe for a woman who goes out to conquer the world”, and in these feminine yet powerful clothes, women are sure to feel equipped to do just that.
