Paris Fashion Week: Louis Vuitton

French fashion house Louis Vuitton yesterday ended Paris Fashion Week with an Art Deco inspired collection.

Louis Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs turned away from the 1950s silhouettes seen for autumn 10 and instead was inspired by Art Deco, Art Nouveau andorientalism.

This filtered through to the catwalk in the form of black silk kimono dresses and mandarin collar jackets with trousers. Fringed deep v- neck dresses featured in black, pink and orange whilst models in bold zebra print dresses queued up for the finale.

Overall the colours were warm, with a sunset palette mixed with rich purple and contrasted against jet black. Silk was the overriding fabric, adding a shine along with Lurex. Silhouettes had a hint of the 1970s with loose fit trousers and high waists along with all in ones, a theme echoed at Jacobs’ own label in New York.

“I didn’t want anything natural,” said Jacobs, “I wanted everything overly stylized.” True to his word Jacobs delivered a colourful, eccentric collection with the oriental influence sure to trigger trends for spring 11.
