Marc Jacobs Leaves a Stunning Mark at Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2014 show

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sadly, all good things have to come to an end. Even the days which Marc Jacobs took rein at Louis Vuitton. But after months of speculation, it is sadly true that Jacobs, and his partner Robert Duffy will sadly be leaving the House of Louis Vuitton. Fortunately leaving the house in good terms, Jacobs final collection was filled with all things black, but that doesn’t mean that the show today was dreary. Instead: today’s show was pretty much all things but dreary. It was dramatic.

As guests arrived at the show this morning, they were greeted by none other than French maids. Leading them into probably the most Iconic atmosphere for a show yet. Re-creating set design from the shows of the past 16 years. There were hotel corridors from last season’s show, a carousel from Jacobs’ Spring 2012 show, the escalator from the Spring 2013 show, the Iconic Louis Vuitton pole from the train at the Fall 2012 show, that Iconic elevator and the doorman from Jacobs Fall 2011 show, and don’t forget that Iconic water founton from the Fall 2010 show. Each rendered in black.

Jacobs’ most recent Muse, Edie Campbell opened the show in chains and handcuffs and sporting an Iconic black headress, which all the models sported. Reminding me a little bit of the headpiece Sarah Jessica Parker sported at the Punk themed Met Gala back in May. With Natasha Poly and Kate Upton amongst the few fellow Icons sitting pretty on the carousel. Jacobs takes inspiration from the many women who have touched over the past 16 years at Louis Vuitton. As we see hints of Coco Chanel, Miucca Prada, and Rei Kawabubo, and hints of some of his best Vuitton pieces. As the models were draped in feathers and crystals, this must be the most Iconic show ever to exist in Fashion History.

“To the Showgirl in all of us.”

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

image image image image

I’ve always loved the such timeless Class and Femininity with a modern British Girl twist that Christopher Bailey has really brought to the House of Burberry Prorsum. His Spring 2014 collection has definitely brought that Class and Feminity, with such Beautiful Glamour and Romance, as the collection starts with an array of all Sweet Things: Lace and Pastels.

image image image image

In the middle of the show, Bailey sends models out in cute, very British Girl ensembles of stripes and polka dots, such a fun and Sweet way to incorporate prints, while still having effortless Class.

image image image image

I see a little bit of a 40s inspired Sillohettes towards the end of the collection with many of the Beautiful tan and pastel shaded trenches belted Glamorously at the waist.

image image image image

And then the finale came about, raining Cherry Blossom petals as the models made their way down the runway; then in a Cherry Blossom plastered runway, Christopher Bailey took his bow, then exiting the runway. For the most Classy and Feminine show I’ve so far this Spring season.
