Louis Vuitton Fall 2012

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2012-2013

Marc Jacobs went all out for the Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection for the house of Louis Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week.  It was an ode to an era gone by as a vintage styled train entered the runway tooting its whistle with the car filled with models dressed in the fall collection.  It was like a scene from the early part of the twentieth century.  A train conductor stood outside and aided each model dressed in lady-like coats and then each accompanied by porters carrying her baggage.

Double breasted jackets, worn with cropped trousers, long dresses and big hats by Stephen Jones reminiscent of another era decorated with large feather-like flowers.  It was the 1900s mixed with 1960s and 1970's influence.  Jackets were adorned with brooches that served as buttons and many fabrics were brocade.  These were women on the go who have travelled from another place and stepped into this century as modern women.  Perhaps she is a socialite heading to her next VIP event.  Or she has just returned from a business trip.  In any case, this woman is confident, classy and a modestly sexy.
