Paris Fashion Week: Louis Vuitton AW13
In many ways the decadent glamour of Louis Vuitton AW13 show was the antithesis to last seasons swinging 60’s optimism. There was a superb cinematic quality to the presentation with its elaborate, yet intimate hotel corridor set. Models sported tussled hair as they came out of their rooms, and performed what can best be described as a fashion walk of shame. The clothes mimicked the decadent setting with it’s luxurious and glamorous qualities from marabou linings to feather embroidery to dégradé effects. The embellishments are decadent indulgences done with restraint. The bags had an equally nostalgic sense of decadent luxury as the classic Lockit and Speedy bags came with curled goose feather and waxed crocodile. A very french collection in many ways and certainly a perfect ode to the many fallen heroines of cinema. #Louis Vuitton @LouisVuitton_UK
