Have you ever felt that a certain designer’s style is better suited to a particular season? I have always felt that Louis Vuitton’s style is better suited to the colder months. The brand’s image of glamour, timelessness and craftsmanship has to my mind always been better celebrated in its autumn/winter collections. You only have to take one look at the amazing coats this season to know what I am talking about.
Whilst some coats looked like bathrobes to me, the beautiful plaid coats was the highlight of the show. Some are fitted and belted whilst others are looser and shorter; there was a coat for everyone. The details featured on these coats will guarantee that you won’t simply fade into the background. I simply adore a bit of bling and these coats adorned with sequins are amazing. They add glamour without being over-the-top. If I could have one designer item this season- it would be the sequin coat!
The show had a distinct bedroom influence with everything from silk pajama suits to lace negliges and lace and silk shorts being paraded on the runway, which was transformed into a grand hotel. Some of the items I do feel are better left in the bedroom, but these negligee inspired evening dresses are the right side of bedroom chic. They feel sexy and romantic in a muted palette of predominately midnight blues. The rich velvets and silks combined with lace and feather trims added to the luxuriously feminine feel of the show.
The evening dresses were simply a delight-assuming they will be lined when they appear in the real world! I will never understand why the runway versions of these beautiful dresses couldn’t be more dignity-preserving. The detailing on the dresses are however amazing.
No LV show would be complete without a showcase of delectable accessories, in particular bags. The show started with a few fur bags which brought flashbacks of my 90’s fur coin purse, but it moved on to more sophisticated bags. I particularly loved the croc Pochette-bags which were showed in a wide variety of colours.
Do you love this collection as much as I do?
