Marc Jacobs appeals to our ultra-feminine sensibilities for Louis Vuitton‘s Spring 2012 collection. With nary a trouser in sight, models enter the runway via carousel– a suitable vehicle for the sugarplum fantasy Jacobs so carefully crafted.
Jacobs leaves overt sexuality and body hugging silhouettes aside, opting for creampuff drop waist skirts, modest hemlines, and prim teatime blouses and blazers. Exploded daisy eyelet shapes pervade the collection, appearing on everything from dainty oversized collars to glen plaid jackets, adding a cheeky suggestiveness to relatively buttoned up looks. Frocks covered in frosty organza sheaths bring a demure quality to plunging necklines and strapless bodices.
Never one to bore the crowds, Jacobs brings key pieces into the third dimension, adding wisps of ostrich feathers and plastic daisy appliqués to pastel blazers, skirts, and dresses.
Models donned slim pearl and metallic headbands, tiaras, and pumps of modest height. Pastel tones offset crocodile detail on structured handbags emblazoned with iconic LV print. Clear logo-plastered parasols added a welcome dose of whimsy to the collection.
I love LV’s offerings for spring! As you well know, I am all about no pants in warm weather, and it’s nice to see that Marc Jacobs ascribes to my #1 style rule. Were you feeling this collection as much as I?
