WOW! Superb collection!
The fabrics and colors are magic…also the setting!
So feminine for next season…we are going to se pastels around us all the time with the perfect and sutil lines of a lady!
Frothy, fantasy, pastels. The models have a little girl lost look about them (emphasised by the fact that most of them have little bruises and blemishes on their legs, possibly enhanced by the colors and lighting). The shoes are killer, though, and seem to act as a reminder that this is not a little girl’s world.
Leave it to LV to bring a carousel onto their runway set.
It’s very refreshing to see them come up with something youthful and fun. It’s very reminiscent of what I would expect from Miu Miu or Prada. http://littleFashionisto.com
In fact at the beggining I thought that there was a hidden political message about gender violence. Beautiful girls, angels but beaten on the legs. The parts that you would not see as the faces are presentable and perfect. Is this the intention? or just all the girls had hit their legs against something?
What a great idea, to have a carousel/merry-go-round.
The first thing I noticed, though- is it just me?(ah, just read the comments, I’m far from the first to notice) the models all seemed to have lots of little bruises on their legs…it must be because of the lighting, all that pure white and pastel.
This collection looks so feminine YET comfortable- really adorable
I love those colors, those collars, the floatiness, those shoes, the makeup! Gorgeous.
Must have been magic to see this in real. It is definitely not easy to shoot pale clothes and pale legs in a white decor, even if they’re all gorgeous. The lighting seems to enhance the blue of the legs’ veins and imperfections…
Marc Jacobs really knows how to put on a show! The last days of fashion week are always the most interesting and have the best shows. First the underwater madness at Chanel and now this caroussel! I’m sad now that fashion week season ended..
Us men think that we are the superior sex but how sadly mistaken we are. You women are the superior sex….how incredibly sexy the famale body, including the super sexy feet. Not only do the clothes compliment these bodies but, most importantly, the shoes accentuate the incredible power and sexiness of the foot. I stand up and applaud all you powerful and down right sexy women. Beautiful collection by Marc!!
I echo the concern over the model’s legs. I suspect this is “normal”, un-retouched, exposure. It pains me to see the one model in a yellow chiffon dress with what looks like a sprained ankle. I wish she had taken the day off, poor thing. But then she wouldn’t have appeared here.
Love that Kate Moss walked again in this show, see her in the second pic in the back. What in the world is everyone talking about the legs?? I had to look very closely. Yes, there appears to be some discoloring on some of the models’ legs, whether from the photography lighting or natural discoloration, why is this such a shock? Pantyhouse would make them look too Steppford-wivey if you want to get all cerebral about it. I like the not too perfect look. Isn’t that what real style is?
I agree with the general consensus and say I love the pointy, pretty shoes! How sexy are their feet!!!!!y toes. Beautiful. They make their legs look even more perfect. And the lovely shade of icy nude is fantastic.
1. Chanel did this carousel for their FW 2009 show. Like most LV collections – beautiful, but it’s been done before.
2. These young, thin girls walk the streets and runways of New York, Milan, London and Paris, non-stop for weeks. It is not unusual that their feet/legs would be a mess by the last day of Fashion Week!
As a very pale person myself (I s’pose that should be VPP for short), I can testify to the fact that everything shows on pale skin–every vein, bump, nick & bruise–and the model’s legs look like the legs of someone who, you know, lives life.
And as for the collection, certainly lovely but I’m quite tired of the girly-girl thing.
I love the shoes this season and the collars are so elaborate and delicate. This collection is the epitome of perfection but I wouldn’t expect anything less than classic, gorgeous pieces form LV. The setting for the show was gorgeous as well, it was incredibly lavish and the merry-go-round was simply stunning.
It is a lovely idea to use a carrousel for a fashion show!
But I find the girls a bit too childish for presenting a nowaday woman!
And they also look a bit unhealthy!
Shouldn’t they consider also some more mature women???
The clothes are beautiful, even so very difficult to wear on a everyday scale; unless one is a princes in a glastower.
But it makes one dream a little and that is very nice, in our so hard world!!!
I THINK IF I SAW THESE CLOTHS ON THE STREET AND USED IN A MORE UNIQUE WAY TO THE INDIVIDUAL WEARING THEM AND WITH SOME EMOTION ATTACHED TO THE MOMENT I WOULD LIKE THE CLOTHS MORE..
I THINK FASHION SHOWS ARE A HUGE INVESTMENT FOR DESIGNERS AND I THINK WITH IN 5 YEARS WILL NO LONGER BE AROUND…
I ALSO, THINK THAT MODELS THAT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE UNHAPPY TAKE AWAY FROM THE BEAUTY OF THE ART FORM OF DESIGN…
What an enormous Chanel-vibe the show has. Is Marc sending a job application? Yet to mention the whole show looks absolutely beautiful. The only not so beautiful thing are bruises on models legs. Please select the girls more wisely next time.
Beautiful! The most beautiful collection I’ve seen pictures of this year, along with Blugirl. Love the ladylike colors and shapes. Of course, I am a rather young woman, and I happen to love carousels and horses, so I didn’t feel it was too young, as some commentators did. LV often has a young feel – remember the colored fox-tails hanging off all the purses in 2009?
why is everyone commenting on their legs? i think they look modelesque and just fine. the importance here is how incredibly beautiful this collection is! really could be my favorite recent LV collection
Love the colours and the shapes (especially that of the skirts), as well as the ’60s “prim-and-proper” feel of the collection (God knows the ’60s were neither prim nor proper, but they sure looked the part:D), but -for me- the shoes don’t really match with the rest of the ensemble.
Marc Jacobs is the last major show in Paris. If you were working 15 hours a day for a month – most of the time on your feet in shoes that were not mad for you – you would start to look run down too. Trust me the models are all happy and ecstatic to be at Louis Vuitton – they are just a bit weathered from all the work they had to do. You should see how their hair looks and how their skin looks under all the makeup by the end of fashion week – being a model is not easy!
I took a better look at this collection, and on second thought; NO. The skirts are so low on the hips they look like they are about to fall off. How is that “wearable”? Scott took beautiful picture as always. But if you see the collection, you will see that this is one of the worst .
I do enjoy your tastefull blog, and i admire your sense of style, now, I have to say that the LV collection looks as if was mented for a Six year old little women.
Dont we the real aged women want a recognition for what whe are?
I don’t think the bruises are intentional (though the predominance of high definition cameras may bring nylons back). I personally don’t mind the flaws though. It makes the fashion more real. I get dressed, bump my knee on the coffee table, sigh, then move on. They may be models but they are still human. Fashion is accessible to everyone who wants it. so you have a bruise on your leg, doesn’t mean you can’t rock some couture.
