On Your Marc: Fall/Winter 2011 should be an impressive selling season for fashion designer Marc Jacobs. His collections for his eponymous signature line, Marc Jacobs, as well as for Louis Vuitton are show stoppers; both inspired by S&M while infused with feminine fantasy. His show for Louis Vuitton (shown above) is hands down the “show-of-the-season”, which is something hard to say thanks to standout collections by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and Nicola Formichetti for Thierry Mugler. But, in my honest opinion, this is nothing more than the truth.
For Louis Vuitton, bellhops opened caged elevator doors revealing the superest of supermodels—Kate [Moss], Naomi [Campbell], Carolyn [Murphy], Karolina [Kurkova]—wearing some of the best outfits I’ve seen in a long time. Models pranced around a black-on-black tiled catwalk, like vultures circling a carcase, to a stunning soundtrack by Phillip Glass. The whole moment was tantalizing. And to top it all off, Kate Moss closed the show puffing a cigarette and looked better than ever.
Marc Jacobs seems to be getting better with time. What I admire most about his work is his attention to detail—not just in the clothes, but in his shows. There’s always a story to tell. And his stories, in my honest opinion, are like bestselling novels!
