Show Review: Louis Vuitton Spring 2013
By Faith

Marc Jacobs packed a punch in his bright, short, and sweet Spring 2013 collection for Louis Vuitton. Mod-inspired silhouettes were the look du jour with leg-baring shift dresses, exposed midriffs, and hard-to-miss Damier check patterns in varying sizes. Hemlines ranged from mini length to maxi, all influenced by the French conceptual artist, Daniel Buren, and his installation Les Deux Plateaux. His work was palpable throughout the collection, which definitely had an abstract minimalist vibe, juxtaposing bold prints and colors with uncomplicated designs.

Shades of brown and burgundy got their time to shine in various check patterns, combining the shade with white and silver metallic on knee-length pencil skirts, long-sleeve crop tops, and an adorable sweater/shorts combination that read modern “It” girl for sure. The color combination also showed up on a three quarter-length sleeve blouse, wide-leg trousers, and a collarless jacket covered in a smattering of flowers: a print that showed up several times in the collection.

The offerings’ brights were some of my favorite looks, especially when juxtaposed against the yellow and white check runway. Lemon and kelly green uplifted ladylike suits, long-sleeve knee length dresses (one was sheer for an added dose of sensuality), and gowns that someone like Fan Bingbing or Zoe Saldana might have the guts to rock on the red carpet.

I couldn’t ignore the shoes and handbags from the collection, now could I? Damier check-covered clutches, dainty contrast-stitch shoulder bags, two-tone bow detailed pumps boasting low heel heights: the accessories appealed more to the “ladies who lunch” set, but I can see fashionistas like Shala Monroque and Solange Knowles putting a modern spin on the accoutrements.

    Always loved Damier better than the monogram. Lord I hope I can afford one one day. This was a really unique runway show. Check it on YouTube.

  2. Checkers, anyone? Not feelin’ it. Any of it…

  7. Luv2luvya says:

    I love it! I don’t think these pieces are meant to be worn together…probably more so mix and match pieces…I’d totally wear the checkered cropped tops with a pair of leather pants and some bad ass shoes!

  8. Reese says:

    I love LV! However, this collection doesn’t inspire me.

  9. PrettyOdd says:

    Ummm. I think bell bottoms were missing. HATE this collection. Tooooo boxy. Looks like clothes from the old days; when people Televisions were black and white.

  10. Brit says:

    I love the checker cut out maxi skirt…very retro reminds a little of marc’s previous collections for his line with all the kitchyness/retro feel

  11. Jihan says:

    :/…. at least the accessories are on point. I must say, I enjoyed last spring’s offerings from LV much more. That was one of my fave collections of the season.

  12. Eva says:

    oh good lord have mercy on Marc Jacobs’ soul…

  13. J says:

    My eyes hurt. Too many checkered pieces. Potential but not enough variety.

  14. Ti says:

    My eyes!

  15. LB says:

    I truly love the show! Congrats Marc! :)
