Louis Vuitton S/S12

Louis Vuitton S/S12 catwalk report, written in the style of Vogue...

Once again, Kate Moss wows for LV.
A welcoming, white wonderland opened up a world of magical designs in a glistening fairytale at Louis Vuitton. 

A pure white fabric cylinder rose high at the Louis Vuitton catwalk show to reveal a theatrical, snow-white carousel. Doll-like models with pale rose lips and lashings of mascara gracefully side saddled white horses, while gold fairy lights shone above them. Each had their hair tied back, some sporting glittering diamante and pearl tiaras. Enchanting music sent twinkling sounds as one by one each model daintily stepped down onto the glossy catwalk that circled the carousel.

Alexa Chung sat front row wearing a Peter Pan collar and puff sleeve dress, accompanied by other celebrity guests including Nicole Richie, Abbie Cornish, Uma Thurman and Rachel Zoe.

The 60’s inspired silhouettes were complete with empire line waists, high necklines and trapeze skirts in a pastel colour palette consisting of mint green, daisy yellow, baby blue, peach sorbet, and icy white. Large, round buttons and square handbags complimented argyle-patterned jumpers and boxy, checked jackets. Full skirted, feather dresses were complete with doily lace collars while floral appliqué shimmered and polka dots were also present, giving a clear yet subtle reminder of Marc Jacob’s own A/W11 collection, which focussed on a spot pattern. As the music grew more dramatic, pastel greys and blacks were apparent on the catwalk, before white reappeared.
The summer daywear expressed femininity with delicate silks, soft makeup and chiffon layered skirts. Dainty court shoes with patent straps had three buttons on one side, some featuring metallic points. Models were accessorized with white, Louis Vuitton monogram umbrellas, placed delicately against one shoulder. Reminiscent of jelly shoes in the 80s, Vuitton’s stand-out, open weave, silvery, basket bags are sure to be a seasonal hit in spring while small, quilted clutches remained subtle.
As the spectacular show came to a magical end, supermodel Kate Moss closed the show with an elegant twirl before delicately sauntering around the fairground style runway. Dressed in a white, floral, ostrich feathered dress with her hair pinned back in a loose bun and held perfectly in place with a thin, gold Alice band, Moss seemed more than happy to be a part of the delightful show for close friend and creative director Marc Jacobs.
To finish, Jacobs (dressed all in white) walked around the carousel to a rapturous applause. Beautifully intricate and hinting fragility, the collection seemed miles away from his A/W11 dominatrix style designs yet it was undoubtedly just as mesmerising. The question on everyone’s lips is will he or won’t he move to Dior? It is clear from this stunning show that Jacobs could cut it in the Dior world but could Phoebe Philo cut it for LV? Hopes and rumours are circulating that he will remain at Louis Vuitton and after that beautiful show, we hope so too.

Love Sacha...
