After last years train scene you might have thought to your self how can you top this? Well, its happened. Geometric shapes rocked the runway during the Louis Vuitton Paris Fashion week show. We can always expect a new take on modern versus vintage from Louis Vuitton but this time there was a refreshing hint of the 1960’s. Designer Marc Jacobs did not disappoint this time around as he went for a ’60s Edie Sedgwick-inspired vibe.
Black, white, and acid yellow checkerboard numbers were overflowing the yellow and white checkered runway topped by several tall escalators which reflected the linear and neat checkerboard theme of the designs. The previous collection’s party girl hairdos were no more. The models dawned polished looks put together with bow-bedecked headbands.
The 10 minute show featured everything from your usual black and white checkers to more fun yellow and white outfits. It had every essential you could possibly want for your closet, pants, dresses, shorts, back-less jump suits and hand bags.
“Vuitton is a company that is about travel. That can be to somewhere in your mind. So, these few minutes are where we want to take you somewhere else, somewhere you have never been before,” Jacobs said backstage in an interview with Godfrey Deeny.
