When the curtain went down at Louis Vuitton and the white carousel and all its models were revealed, the audience gasped, surprised. With Marc every fashion show is a big show and he knows how to do it. If the last season was "fetish", this time Marc did the opposite. "After the hardness of Fall, we wanted something gentle and kind, fragile but strong, too" he said touting the workmanship not only on dresses but also in the bags.
A sweet collection empty with everything candy-coloured and much of it adorned with big lacy collars or oversize white buttons. The models like little princess in a candy land, rise on that white horses turning around, glided with broderie anglase dresses that came veiled in pastel shades of organza; laser cuts lace tops and skirts were in silk cellophane like if they were baby doll's presents.
When the show finished with Kate Moss, the only one constant with his Fall collection, i was impressed about what i'd just watched. I felt that something good is going to happen on MJ, and this is reflexed in this last collection plenty of sugar and pastel colors...
Maybe the fact that he is going to design for Dior next time? Yes, maybe it is.
Really, i can't wait!
Meanwhile, enjoy with this video by Tyrone Lebon about the fantastic candy land of Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2012.
New York, Madrid, Milán, Paris.. fashion's weeks are already finish and all designers have done their exams with their spring/summer collections. Having a look at all of the shows and the pictures in backstage's, i realized that my favourite one this time (and it's becoming one of my favourite designers too) it's Celine.
Since her debut two years ago, Phoebe Philo has won legions of fan thanks at his simple-minimal-useful style that made fall in love lot of women. Women that have gotten used to all things sleek and streamlined (for example the unadorned leather Classic box bag that launched so many imitators). But for spring, Philo is thinking about "shape", about "very three-dimensional sculptural silhouettes" that accentued the bits that felt strong, to tried to create new proportions (like the belts on the waist or A-line leather tees with the pleats, for example).
She is one of those growing number of designers who take inspiration from fifties and sixties this year (you can see it clearly in the rounded sleeve of the army jackets or at the peplums circling the hips) but also the one who never leave her spirit of new era and minimal look. No prints, few accesories, save from leather bags and ankle-strap pumps that, personally love (want/need!) that were the focus of the show.
I attached the entired fashion show video for all of those who didn't saw it yet. ENJOY.
