I hope you're all having a great weekend. My mom was asking me some questions about my blog and asked me if I had seen the Fall 2012 Louis Vuitton runway show. I had to admit, I hadn't heard about it, so I was amazed when I saw the photos of the show. Louis Vuitton has always been one of my favorite brands, but after all the pairing Marc Jacobs does with them, it's no wonder my jaw dropped after hearing the details of the show.
The show began with an actual vintage locomotive pulling into the Louvre "station" complete with steam and everything. The next thing we see is porters escorting the gorgeous women off the train with their fabulous bags in hand. The bags we know are always amazing, but what about the clothes? There were "A-line silhouettes, ... tall, deep-brimmed, expression-concealing hats...a myriad of jackets, often in glittery fabrics, with oversize jeweled buttons, severe, sleeveless A-line coats, square-necked Empire waist dresses in Lurex." So, we have the perfect combination of vintage and contemporary. Vogue even said it resembled Prada's new collection. So, prepare yourselves for this gorgeous trend ladies.
