For autumn 09, the Louis Vuitton
girl is going to a disco-punk prom in stiff silk mini puffball dresses with black lace overlay, sporting a messy beehive held together with a giant pearl hair pin. In mini tulip skirts with twisted silk black bunny ears, delicate lace blouses, and fine knit cardigans worn backwards and left a little unbuttoned to confidently reveal a bright bra strap.
Ticking all of the seasons trend boxes came wool capes, exaggerated shoulders, draped crepe skirts, raglan sleeves, ruffles, graphic prints, leather second skin trousers, nipped waist jackets the most beautiful black tailored skirt suits that were perfect for both day and dates.
Pretty colours like pink, jade and nude were set against tough black, and romantic details like ruffles, pleats, ruching and oversized rosettes were employed to fashion a super directional and fierce silhouette. Leather ruched skirt suits and dresses struck the perfect balance between elegant and tough. And there was great outerwear too the capes and parkas, boxy coats and lets not forget the so-now thigh high boots.
Tough and pretty, sexy and cute, feminine and masculine Jacobs mixed it all up with abandon, like only Jacobs can.
Filling the space that brands like Miu Miu
have possibly left open of late, this show was jam packed full of the kind of hits that the effortlessly cool and hip twenty and thirty somethings will put straight to the top of their fashion scrolls next season.
Accessories were some of the best seen all month. Slouchy clutch bags in eye popping hues, pearl hair pins, chunky metal belts, pendulum jet earrings and bold and beautiful neckpieces joined like paper chain
