The 2 Most Buzzed About Shows From Day 9 of Paris Fashion Week

After 28 days of non-stop fashion action from New York to Paris, a lot of editors were probably thinking they were ready for a nap when Marc Jacobs took his bow in pajamas at the Louis Vuitton show. They didn't find the deshabille looks Jacobs showed sleepy, however, and were also pretty jazzed about the dotty outfits at Miu Miu.

Louis Vuitton Designer: Marc Jacobs

  • "In a show celebrating what Jacobs called 'decadent glamour,' gold and silver embroidery covered dresses with a retro feel were finished with fur trims and shimmered on the catwalk." [AFP]
  • "More than just a spectacle, this collection distilled a lot of the trends we have seen here this week--masculine-meets-feminine fabrications; soft, feminine tailoring; special-looking outerwear, feathers and fur--all in a wearable way. [AP]
  • "Louis Vuitton moved in a more feminine, sensual direction for fall-winter." [AP]
  • "The women appear to be, in many cases, half-dressed, carrying on the homage to pajamas Marc Jacobs initiated at his eponymous show in New York, but here the exquisite robes are of flowered silk, or pale plaid that morphs mysteriously into sequins." [The Cut/

    New York Magazine]

  • "Beautiful and dreamy." [The Daily Beast]
  • "Post show, Jacobs made his own appearance at the PJ party in, what else, red silk jammies." [Daily Front Row]
  • "Possibly the most glamorous-looking walk of shame ever." [The Daily Telegraph]
  • "This was a seductive collection that played to Louis Vuitton’s chief strength: luxury." [ELLEuk.com]
  • "Demonstrated the way a woman could own her stereotypes, invert them, and rework them to her advantage." [FT.com]
  • "In a season where the play between the masculine and the feminine has loomed large, some of the show's strongest moments fused both in a single look: traditional menswear fabrics, and tweeds in particular, were cut into curvy dresses with petticoat straps and trimmed with lace." [Grazia Daily]
  • "Glamour but a hint, or more, of impropriety." [The Guardian]
  • "The show notes promised a touch of 'une robe de chambre,' but there was more than just a touch going on here, with louche wool coats in the shape of dressing gowns and with rounded lapels worn belted over silk negligee style slip dresses in pale peach." [The Independent]
  • "The Marc Jacobs message was so clearly and invitingly portrayed that it raised the fashion desire that has been pushing through the Paris season." [International Herald Tribune]
  • "Though most of his audience probably had sleep in mind (Mr. Jacobs wore pajamas), this collection was indeed inviting, with some beautiful undies mixed in with handsome, strict coats and powder-puff bags." [The New York Times]
  • "When Jacobs came out to take his bow in a pair of red silk pajamas it was the perfect finish to a languid and lovely collection." [NOWFASHION]
  • "Ladylike looks with plenty of sex appeal." [POPSUGAR Fashion]
  • "A romance with intimations of decadence and melancholy." [Style.com]
  • "Marc Jacobs gave vent once more to his incredible soaring imagination, one capable of elevating the experience of being at a Louis Vuitton show and the clothes themselves. They, incidentally, were remarkable, and took the last day of Paris, and therefore the fall 2013 season, to a delicious and delirious high." [Vogue.com]
  • "Why go out when you can stay in? That's the very seductive idea that Marc Jacobs was posing this morning at Louis Vuitton." [Vogue.com UK]
  • "Kate Moss epitomizes Marc Jacobs' nostalgic vision of dressed-up dishabille for Louis Vuitton." [Wmagazine.com]
  • "The pieces were invariably gorgeous, the results of that happy pairing of a great talent and mega resources: a herringbone pattern made entirely of embroidered sequins; voluptuous robes lined in marabou." [WWD]

Miu Miu Designer: Miuccia Prada

  • "A little thin on ideas, and I couldn’t get the image of Olive Oyl out of my head." [All The Rage/

    Los Angeles Times]

  • "Last season's boxy and printed looks were gone for Miu Miu's fall-winter 2013-14 show. In their place was a more inventive collection that featured outerwear as dresses, large-sized buttons and giant handbags." [AP]
  • "A youthful, upbeat collection." [The Daily Beast]
  • "Miuccia Prada entered a fictional land of whimsy for Fall where a band of Mary Poppins-meets-Olive Oil lookalikes traipsed around in candy-colored polka dot dresses, belted at the waist and finished off with a silk neckerchief, or navy brass button suiting set against striped tights and chunky-soled Mary Janes." [Daily Front Row]
  • "An intriguingly severe manifestation of Miu Miu." [The Daily Telegraph]
  • "Fun and punchy, almost pantomime-like with their Punch and Judy stripes and Edwardian fairground feel." [ELLEuk.com]
  • "It was a neat picture of the duality inherent in many women’s lives, and an argument for the fact that, if well co-ordinated, you can have at least some of it all." [FT.com]
  • "Was Miuccia Prada thinking of the assertive not to mention superhuman Pippi Longstocking for her autumn/winter collection for Miu Miu? It rather seemed like it although the Swedish fictional character who would rather never grow old and can pick up a horse in one hand had been given a very chic makeover." [Grazia Daily]
  • "Bags are big business after all, and this was literally the case at Miu Miu, which showed this afternoon, where giant tote bags and duffle bags, both with an ostrich skin effect, dwarfed models." [The Independent]
  • "'Frivolity--starting from sport,' said Miuccia Prada of her Miu Miu collection, which gave a similar definitive fashion statement as the pantsuits of a year ago." [International Herald Tribune]
  • "The silhouette made the collection." [The New York Times]
  • "The effect was ladylike but off-kilter--just what her fans have come to love about Ms. Prada." [POPSUGAR Fashion]
  • "This season, she stayed true to her concept for the presentation--which is to endlessly iterate variations on the same strong look and line until by the end of the show, something that required a moment or two of adjustment at the show’s opening (a shift in proportion, or color, or casting, and usually all three) looks entirely convincing by the finale run-by." [Vogue.com]
  • "Utility and folklore might be the polar opposites but when served up on the Miu Miu catwalk together they work, they really work." [Vogue.com UK]
  • "The chicest sweater dress of the season came with a sexy Gallic twist at Miu Miu." [Wmagazine.com]
  • "Brought to mind Mary Poppins." [WWD]
