LOUIS VUITTON WOMEN’S SPRING/SUMMER 2013 – PARIS FASHION WEEK
Posted on November 15, 2012
If Tweedledum and Tweedledee were slim, hot and fashionable, this is probably what they’d look like!
Check out the images from the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013 womenswear show at Paris Fashion Week, with some of my key notes on colours and influences below.
Evidently forming a correlation with his own brand’s collection, Marc Jacobs’ Spring/Summer 2013 show for Louis Vuitton was influenced by conceptual artist Daniel Buren (who also designed the set), which in turn led to this chessboard themed visual treat with an emphasis on symmetry, geometry, the 60s and a third dimension. The dizzying checks were formed with a colour palette consisting of black, white, grey, lemon yellow, leaf green, tobacco, mocha and plum while the primary focus was on the new interpretation of the iconic damier print within garments boasting a slim and elongated silhouette. Simple cropped tunics, boxy jackets, mid riff baring tops, micro mini skirts, midi skirts, skirt suits adorned with floral motifs, floor length dresses interpolated with sheer elements and pointed check shoes, all worn by “Children of the Corn” models, sporting beehives and bows, whilst staring ominously in pairs.
