Oh Louis!

As far as catwalk shows go, Louis Vuitton’s show for Spring/Summer 2012 earlier in Paris really  does take the biscuit. It was a true masterpiece, and that’s not even considering the actual collection… or Kate Moss ending the show!

The circular runway enclosed a curtained central space which, as the music started, revealed the most divine fairground carousel featuring each of the SS12 adorned models sitting astride each of the carousel’s horses. As the carousel began spinning, each model hopped off and showcased each of the looks.

The collection was sublimely feminine with a pastel palette of dresses, coats, handbags and shoes – some of which had been laser cut to infinite detail. We are literally drolling over our keyboards for the shoe collection which features the pointed, metallic toe coming back into fashion. These, along with the colours, baby-doll cuts, high chignons and sweeping false lashes hint to a 60s v.s. new Millenium feel with metallics contrasting against super soft lines and makeup.

We absolutely loved the show (which you can see a video of below) and wonder whether this will indeed be Marc Jacobs’ sign off as Louis Vuitton designer before his rumoured moved to Dior….
