s/s 2008 paris: louis vuitton.

collections Uncategorized

when you’re feeling down and addictions have you caught in a web, the only thing that will help you get back on your feet is a bit of rehabbing. and who better to bring you a dose of cookoo than marc jacobs, and what better “administrators” of the cure than supermodels! that’s what marc delivered in a crazy, mad-capped collection, where the opening exits were the old guard (stephanie seymour, nadja auermann, naomi campbell, eva herzigova) and the new (natalia vodianova, angela lindvall, carmen kass, karolina kurkova) wearing nurses caps spelling out “louis vuitton”, and white plastic coats over dipdyed strapless dresses.

the color palette was partly inspired by spongebob squarepants, one of jacobs’ favorite characters. the styling was similar to his namesake show, but this time, the pieces and details melded together in a much more cohesive manner, and the pieces seemed more wearable.

he still used alot of transparency, as seen in the opening coats, plus chiffon pants, double breasted suits, and tulle prom skirts, and also mixed in deconstructed pieces like fringed tweeds and patchwork sequins. keeping everything toned down were white button down shirts, lightweight cardigans, and draped jersey dresses.

at night, the flash went up, and the color palette got a bit darker: plum, black, navy, cobalt, and fuschia. the looks included long sleeveless tuxedo vests, jeweled neck cardigans, pleated full skirts, raw silk coatdresses, fringed tulle skirts, and layered tulle prom dresses.

the bags were done in collaboration with artist richard prince, where he silkscreened the lv monogram (unevenly), used paint splatters, and childlike drawings. get on the waitlist now.
