Show Review: Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012
By Faith

It is amazing to think that Marc Jacobs has been behind the helm at Louis Vuitton since 1997. He has taken the brand to a whole new level, really solidifying it as a creative force in the industry without taking away any of its classic and signature elements. Modeled by Nyasha Matonhodze, Xiao Wen Ju and Frida Aasen, the Pre-Fall 2012 collection is all about 1940′s femininity with a nod to the the French fashion house’s past.

The collection takes inspiration from the great French architect and designer, Charlotte Perriand who designed famous buildings including the French Tourist Office in London and the League of Nations building for the UN in Geneva. Perriand had her heyday amidst the World Wars and was known for her style as well as for her talent. Her influence can be seen in retro-inspired and quintessentially French pieces including berets, elegant flats and a printed dress and top, both featuring strong shoulders.

Hints from Louis Vuitton’s past are alive in an eye-catching leopard mohair suit playing with Stephen Sprouse’s iconic print and in the resurgence of the classic Papillon bag, in debossed green, brown and black leather.

A collection from the brand would not be complete without some whimsy and design director, Julie de Libran, achieves that in the touches of fur accenting the looks. Fur-trimmed shoes, coat pockets, a handbag and even a forest green vest all make an appearance. The price tag on these pieces will be high, but I have a feeling that these will be among the favorites of the new-age Louis Vuitton fans.

A really powerful collection that honestly has a little something for every woman. I cannot wait to see the Papillon bags in person and I think those along with the charming berets and outerwear will be really the hits from among the looks.

What do you think?
