The look All the fun of the fair as models paraded on the Louis Vuitton carousel.
Key pieces After the harshness of Louis Vuitton’s fetish look last season, spring 12 was light and soft. Broderie anglaise and floral appliqué was key on overcoats and dresses with feathers adding to the softness of the collection. Crocodile skin biker jackets added a harder edge to prevent it looking sickly sweet. Bell-shaped skirts and dresses stopped just below the knee with highlights including shirts with organza layers.
Colours A fondant palette of lemon, peppermint and ice whites.
Commercial appeal Animal skins have been gaining momentum this season and Louis Vuitton’s crocodile skin biker jackets in light spring colours along with lace collars on overcoats and shirts will enjoy wider success on the high street.
