Paris Fashion Week Highlight: Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013
Last season the Louis Vuitton catwalk featured a real train from which the models emerged. That’s a pretty hard act to follow, which is why there was a heady cloud of anticipation and expectation looming over the show’s venue today, though that was lifted as soon as the lucky attendees walked into the room. Erected at one end of a yellow and white checkerboard runway were four elevators, down which the models arrived in “twins” meaning the entire show finished in just under nine minutes.
The collection was inspired by artist Daniel Buren, who is known for his work with grids, the reason why Jacobs decided not to use the famous LV monogram in the collection but rather the more demure LV Damier pattern.
The show in its entirety was refreshing, Jacobs had achieved his aim in to doing something different for the fashion house and his only problem now lies in how to make his next show at least this spectacular.
