“After the hardness of Fall, we wanted something gentle and kind, fragile but strong, too,” Marc Jacobs said about his collection for Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 showed at Paris Fashion Week. It was a whimsical, sugary presentation, extremely pretty and frivolous yet with a special, powerful impact upon the audience. And we must admit that the merry-go-round played a particular role in this show, being the perfect symbol of the fashion industry which is in constant motion.
Everything in this collection was outstanding with a ladylike aesthetic. From girly tops with lace collars, delicate princess dresses and fashionable A-line and bell-shaped skirts to elegant coats, smart suits and crocodile biker jackets, Marc Jacobs designed once again an impressive line for Louis Vuitton. Broderie anglaise, organza, tweed, leather, sequins, crystals, plastic flowers, ombré feathers and sweet pastels were essential details that added a dreamy, unique vibe to the collection. And Kate Moss, of course, who was the last girl to appear on the catwalk.
The models walked down the runway with effortlessly gorgeous chignons accessorized by precious, sparkling tiaras. Speaking about accessories, the stunning ensembles were complemented by Speedy bags, transparent voile Lockits, basket weave bags, and dizzy stilettos. “The workmanship on our new basket weave bags is insane. It took six hours just to line up the skins on one coat,” Vuitton’s creative director said.
