Louis Vuitton gives real women something to celebrate for Fall 2010

11 Mar

Marc Jacobs redeemed himself yesterday with a beautiful fall 2010 collection for Louis Vuitton.  His vision for the French house’s Spring 2010 collection received mixed reviews with what I deemed an mixing bowl collection of head turning (not in a good way) peg heeled clogs sprouting with fur, models in afro, brocade cycling shorts and other accessories and clothing that belong in a museum and not on the street.  To Marc’s credit, the Spring 2010 collection wasn’t all bad.  Those with a taste for the avant garde would certainly get a kick out of it, the Junaya Watanabe, Kansai Yamamoto and Margiela lovers would treasure this collection.  It just wasn’t very Parisian or what I’ve come to love about Louis Vuitton.
For the fall 2010, Louis Vuitton returned to the classics with a fifties inspired collection that celebrates women’s curves and their bountiful bosoms.  Gone are the days of the shiny Balmain  mini dresses, Sargeant Pepper jackets or the military inspired frocks.  This time around, Marc NAILED what women want perfectly.  For starters, there were no super skinny models on the runway.  Elle Macpherson, Laetitia Casta, Bar Refaeli, Catherine McNeil and Karolina Kurkova took on the runway showing off the sexy balconette bustier necklines and sexy Brigitte Bardot pony tails.  
Showing off variations of the Speedy was gratifying.  Sequins, fur, metallic threads and lace spruced up the Speedy and I know that LV lovers will be lining up for. I still can’t get enough of the fall collection.  Full circle wasp waist skirts done up in leather, cinched waist dresses, muted florals and plaid.  I normally cannot afford Louis Vuitton but I plan on investing in the chocolate leather skirt and the block heeled pumps with flat bows.  The body-con look is so 2007. I’m just excited to see such a perfect collection that seems to be made just for me.  An homage to the real woman, with breasts and hips is a beautiful thing and Marc Jacobs captured that sentiment perfectly.

    It is so refreshing to see this. I am so tired of the sequins, body-con dresses, mini’s cut up to the hoo-hah and the “military” inspired stuff. Oh and jumpsuits. Done! Done! and done! This collection is for every shape. Any woman can wear it. Classic but with a modern twist with the use of leather and lace. super sexy.
