Louis Vuitton- Fall 2008

Black, black, black is everywhere to be seen. First at Yves Saint Laurent, then Balenciaga and now at Louis Vuitton. Instead of last season’s collection of patchwork on silhouettes, Marc Jacobs has produced an innovative collection, which can only be described as chic elegance. Coats in muted browns, knitwear in soft greys, splashes of mint on blouses and of course this season favourite colour BLACK on everything. The silhouettes are all about structure; although shapes are soft and less over-powering. But as always Marc Jacobs always seems to impress me. Balloon shape ¾ length trousers seems to be the main focus at Vuitton; whether in grey, camel or black, these trousers are a statement piece for next season. And lets not get started on the shoes; chunky, chunky, chunky. Nice touch.
