This Isn’t Your Grandma’s Vuitton
October 6, 2008
Louis Vuitton was one of the last collections to be showcased during Fashion Week in Paris, and boy was it -well- surprising. While Marc never seems to surprise anyone, Louis Vuitton is usually more paired down and subtle than it is crazy.
Marc changed that for spring. Poodle hair, big, structural jewelry, and shiny and sheer everything, it was all there. While I felt the jewelry and the hair totally threw off the outfits and I could have done with less, the clothes themselves were what made my jaw drop.
Louis Vuitton has such a history and to many aristocrats still living today, it was once this luxury brand that only the elite could afford and wear. Looks like Marc is throwing that mentality out the window and starting all over it.
Bravo, I say, Brav-o.
