I would count it a lack of fashion civility had I not acknowledged the a/w 09 show for Louis Vuitton, seeing that I worked at the Charlotte boutique for six months, I now have a greater appreciation for the french fashion label. Marc Jacobs, design frontman, serves us a luxuriously chic dose of his favorite decade for Vuitton this season (he used 1980s references in the Sprouse collabo and his fall 09 show for his self titled label as well). It was an amalgam of ruffles, shoulder pads, thigh grazing boots, and structured suits, with a feminine touch of lace throughout. It was a refreshing collection that embodied the parisian grandeur of the 80s while still maintaining that element of "classic" Marc design. Nothing short of sheer perfection, Marc's kilt and all.
