Trend of the season – Louis Vuitton Checkerboard collection
It was a collection that I thought was cute on the catwalk (or escalators in actual fact), but wasn’t really sure who would wear it in real life. The answer proved to be ‘everybody!’. Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer collection for Louis Vuitton 2013 has proved to be one of the most popular collections ever in terms of celebrity patronage. Everyone, and I mean everyone, seems to have been spotted wearing at least one of the pieces from the range.
The collection is an intoxicating mixture of 1960s geometric design and block colour. Think Pierre Cardin, Paco Rabanne and Peggy Moffat modelling and you get the general picture of what this collection brings to 2013. And it all works – something that seems so based in the design and colour of the swinging sixties has proved to be ultra modern and stylish in 2013. Miranda Kerr, Kirsten Dunst, Kristen Stewart, Kerry Washington, Jessica Alba, Hailee Steinfeld, Bereneice Bejo and Juno Temple are just some of the famous ladies who have worn and loved this unusual range. In addition, model Lindsey Wixson looked just amazing in the green version on the cover of Japanese Vogue, whilst Fan BingBing went against the grain in a block yellow dress from the collection.
Get the look
I wasn’t sure about this collection, and I’m still unsure now. Actually like your pieces better than Marc Jacobs to be honest.
It definitely divides opinions Sophie, a marmite collection.
