Marc Jacobs bids adieu to Louis Vuitton with his PFW show
Oct '13
A pre-dominantly dark, nightmarish and almost mourning like theme was recreated at the show of French fashion house Louis Vuitton which bid adieu to its artistic director of 16 years Marc Jacobs through a spectacular runway presentation on the final day of Paris Fashion Week (PFW).
Designed under the creative guidance of the New York-based designer, the label’s 41-piece ready-to-wear collection included thick floor sweeping Edwardian dresses, feathery cabaret-style jackets, decorative corsets, blue baggy jeans and bodystocking printed with the famous Stephen Sprouse graffiti.
Miu Miu, the high-end women’s fashion brand from the famous Italian powerhouse Prada, opted for a very young girlie look for its new Spring/Summer 2014 collection. The fresh, cutesy and somewhat trans-seasonal line was based on a vibrant palette of red, orange, brown, blue and yellow.
Enhanced with sequins and storybook like cat, parrot and fish prints, the ensembles included collared button-down wool coats, ruche velvet dresses, beaded and fringed skirts, draped silk blouses and knit-patterned tights.
Christophe Lemaire, the French designer behind the Parisian label Hermes, took inspiration from the works of French Post-Impressionist painter Henri Rousseau for his latest catwalk collection staged on the last day of PFW. The line displayed short sleeve button down crisp shirts, landscape-patterned handwoven skirts and suede dresses with palm motif necklines.
