Marc Jacobs set the scene for the Louis Vuitton show in Paris with the grandeur of a Parisian hotel. Fifty “hotel rooms” lined the runway, from which provocatively dressed models revealed themselves.
There was a definitely reference to the underground scene of the 1950′s with the sensuality of lingerie and sleepwear style dresses worn as ready-to-wear. A film noir-esque fifties style wig transformed the likes of Kate Moss and Georgia May Jagger into seductresses.
Luxe outerwear pared with intimates made up much of the collection, with lace negligees peeking through embellished coats, and sultry bra and slip sets matched with thick fur coats. The look was that of the “walk of shame” with last nights dressed covered up with an oversized mens coat for the trip home.
While the show was certainly sexual, there was a romanticism to the pieces in floral applique and furs that was reminiscent of the sepia films starring greats like Brando and Hepburn, making us dream of times gone by.
