If you’re going against the trends, Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2014 collection is the right one for you. If you’re fancying feathers and beads, Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2014 Collection is the perfect one for you. If you’re Angelina Jolie, Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2014 Collection was designed for you.
An all black fashion show (save for a couple of washed out jeans) designed by Marc Jacobs for the maison he officially parted with. A decision, he confessed, he took the very morning of the show. Yeah. Right. I will pretend he didn’t just insult the entire fashion world by saying that and I’ll just focus on the fashion of it all.
So it was a good-bye collection, celebrating the sweet 16 years of Vuitton commercial and conceptual fashion domination under Marc Jacobs’ creative directives. (hint: having a model parading around handcuffed and chained would that be creative enough?)
The set of the Paris Fashion Week show itself was a mix of past collections stages – which he also must’ve decided the morning of the show. Not.
The collection was an eminent mix of memories stitched together with sheer drama and patches of confident clever sadness.
Boots for spring? Chez Vuitton, everything is possible!
Feathers, beads, sequins and leather in the same jacket or bag? Chez Vuitton, we’re oh-so-creative!
A sauce of the 90es flavored with spices of the present? Chez Vuitton, we’re molding fashion as we please!
It may be just the bitter disappointment with a collection that wasn’t essentially new or innovative, but the last looks sent by Marc Jacobs on his farewell Louis Vuitton catwalk simply didn’t impress me. Wearable, yes. Inspiring as a trip in the attic, summery as a penguin and happy as a black widow spider. The theatrics of this LV swan song from Marc Jacobs was just as staged and appealing as all the others. Too bad it felt like he was drained out. Of fashion energy. Of creative vision. Thank you for making it easier to get over you chez LV, Marc! It was such a brilliantly conceived ‘last minute’ departure! (images courtesy styledotcom)
