The Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 Ready-to-Wear show was very French indeed. The show began with eye-catching, see-through black lace shirts… with nothing underneath.
The Paris fashion week show also included incredibly feminine accents, like silk bows fastened around the ankles. Hair was pulled back tightly to reveal necklaces so neon, they would have glowed from under a mop of hair anyway. The entire collection, with its bright fabrics contrasted with stark black leather, and pieces like vibrant ballerina skirts, was totally 80s. Fingerless gloves and giant hair bows emphasized Madonna’s early days even more.
Oh, does Marc Jacobs know how to get people to talk about his designs… and how he knows how to captivate an audience. Plus he introduced one of my favourite fashions of next season: hot pink and black.
