The Clothes: The clothes seemed like a more feminine, more conservative continuation of Jacobs’s graphic striped Factory Girl collection for his eponymous label. It was Louis Vuitton checks instead of stripes though on mod minis, long-sleeve crop tops paired with pants or long skirts, cropped pointy-collared jackets over mid-calf length skirts, and pea coats. The line sheets informed that “a strict perpendicular block interrupted at three levels forms the basis of every silhouette in this collection,” and, as we mentioned before, inspired by Buren’s “Les Deux Plateaux.”
Accessories, the line sheets said, did not make use of the “Monogram”–the first ever Louis Vuitton collection to do so. Instead they used the Vuitton Damier check to “provide the house’s signature.” And if you notice some sparkle on the bags, that’s because they’re covered in thousands of carefully arranged sequins and apparently they’re the smallest sequins ever produced. Louis Vuitton doesn’t cut corners.
