LOUIS VUITTON – PARIS F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
The Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 show was surely one of the most talked about spectacles of Paris fashion week. Marc Jacobs out did himself once again, escalating the show from the merry-go-round collection last season, a real train with a steam engine pulled into the Cour Carrée where models disembarked, followed by porters carrying those iconic LV bags, and wearing clothes that harkened back to the golden age of rail travel. Jacobs layered skirts, dresses, and coat-dresses over cropped pants with slightly flared ankles and platform pumps, a popular design silhouette this season. Jacobs created an intensely layered look that was only enhanced by Stephen Jones’s crushed, velvet top-hats that added six inches of height. Jacobs said that his silhouettes had, “a turn of the century feel, but with bits of the 1960s and 1970s.” Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2012 show marks fifteen years of Jacob’s reign at the head of the illustrious fashion house, and this collection cemented Jacobs as both a masterful showman and a continually innovative designer.
