Marc Jacobs, one of the hardest working men in all of fashion-ville, is being courted by yet another fashion house, Dior. If he decides to take the challenge this would be label number 4 for him after Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton. I even heard that he received a person visit from LVMH Chairman and CEO, Bernard Arnault. That’s major! Thanx Fashionologie.
I’m a girlie girl if there ever was one and I’ve been seeing some majorly girlie looks on Spring 2012 runways. Here are my favs…
Miu Miu featured some super cutsie lace mini dresses, ribbon adorned jackets, and detailed bags. The warrior make-up was the final touch… excellent!
It’s like Marc Jacobs was rummaging through my accessory drawer for this season’s Louis Vuitton Spring 2012. I’m a huge believer in flash and trash, otherwise known as sparkle!!! The silhouettes were amazingly girlie with lots of lace and bright colors. Oh Marc, my love, you always make me so happy!
By now, we’ve all heard something about the embattled house of Dior and it’s most notorious ex-lead designer, John Galliano. Well, studio assistant, Bill Gaytten was given the difficult task of creating Christian Dior’s Couture 2012 runway look; reviews are less than flattering. The discord was obvious, almost palpable, I saw glimmers of beauty which were overwhelmed by a fear of failure. Gaytten was obviously in over his head but I’m sure the powers that be, namely, Sidney Toledano, Chief executive officer, and big boss, Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH, were two more cooks clogging up the kitchen. The Dior drama lead to too much fabric, a lack of consistency, strange geometric head dresses, celestial strangeness, and clowns, yes clowns… I wasn’t prepared, but what do we expect during the changing of the guard?
If you love Louis Vuitton you must purchase Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Book. It’s aesthetic is something you’d want to see on even the ugliest of coffee tables. The 256 page tome covers the New York artist’s contributions to the fashion house and of course includes hundreds of pictures.
Louis V’s show was this morning and in my humble opinion Marc Jacobs out did himself. The military inspired line opened with a tailored and architectural look, the caby hats and super sheer bottoms, excellence! The show transitioned into a truly feminine aesthetic filled with fur and thy highs, my favorite! Then the show closed with pretty lazer cut pieces layered into typical, even conservative looks. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
