Set in the era of luxurious train travel, Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection was a spectacle to see at the Paris Fashion Week. Haute designer Marc Jacobs once again showed fashion-forward guests his impeccable taste in couture.
This season’s show consisted of a pre-World War I aristocratic theme in a custom-built “train station”, complete with a functioning steam engine train. It features models that alighted from the train while clad in refined coats, skirts, hats, and platform Mary Janes, with their personal porters striding along, carrying their equally well-designed luggage.
Vogue reports that the collection included “elongated, ankle-grazing, A-line silhouettes, and the tall, deep-brimmed, expression-concealing hats, each sprouting an eccentric medallion of fur, with a puff of feather, on the side. Break these looks down, and you have a myriad of jackets, often in glittery fabrics, with oversize jeweled buttons, severe, sleeveless A-line coats, square-necked Empire waist dresses in Lurex—each of which doesn’t need to look in the slightest vintage-y in a modern girl’s wardrobe.”
Parading in browns, grays, blacks, and muted rose tones, the models paraded looks that mostly featured “pants under the skirt” style for a more contemporary vibe.
This season’s collection from Louis Vuitton suits street casual style and fashion for work given the right pairing. Put together an ensemble of a soft pink coat and casual jeans and pair it with beautiful Mary Janes and you’re all set for a relaxed day out. Put together an a-line skirt with a jacket and you’re good for the office. With this collection, haute moms will also find themselves striding along the streets wearing one of the finest designs this Fall.
