Designer Marc Jacobs, the Creative Director of French fashion house Louis Vuitton, presented his Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2013/2014 Womenswear Ready-to-Wear collection at Paris Fashion Week on March 6, 2013 in Paris, France.
Jacobs offers a very romantic, yet sophisticated retro-inspired collection of dresses and gowns in a muted color palette to include slate grey/green, beige, brown, rust, ivory, pink, grey and basic but always chic black.
Expect a variety of materials and textures such as lace, silk, velvet, chiffon, plaid, fur and even leather from this autumnal Louis Vuitton collection.
Something unique to this Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2013/2014 collection is a selection of plaid pieces embellished by metallic glitter at the hem, such as the grey and black plaid dress with silver bling at the bottom, which is topped off with a green and brown faux fur coat.
There are also several very lovely lace dresses, including the V-necked cocktail dress with elbow-length butterfly sleeves.
Worthy of mention among his several red carpet-ready gowns is the V-necked grey gown with floral motif and long sleeves, which actually could be teamed very artfully with a pearl grey lacy or chiffon shift to offer more coverage.
Accessories include extremely fuzzy fur handbags that make you think of fur boudoir slippers from the 1950’s, a large selection of heels and medium-sized handbags.
In their outerwear range, there are some lovely plaid coats in various colors combinations such as tasty cocoa brown (that tops a rust lace-embellished gown), bottle green and slate grey.
For the record, there wasn’t a single skirt on Marc Jacobs, who felt compelled to don a red floral jump suit that looked like, warm, fuzzy flannel pajamas. Hmmm… It’s all good!
