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

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.”

Borrowing from the Boys at Haider Ackermann

We’re Borrowing from the Boys! As Haider Ackermann designs many of his pieces in very Baggy, more Masculine silhouettes. But for some feminine, more Sleepwear like accents, Ackermann uses Sparkly fabrics of silk and satin and sheer, in Metallic and Jewel Tone hues, but not forgetting black. Nevertheless, the collection features many feminine and Sleepwear accents, mixed with a Masculine feel for a really Dramatic and Fresh collection from Haider Ackermann. Now I can’t wait to get my hands on those Blazers and Baggy pants.

21. Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Shaped Handbags

When I first laid my eyes on Marc by Marc JacobsFall 2013 collection, I instantly fell in love with the 1970s inspired collection. With the perm like hair, bright colors, exciting prints, plaid, and the shaped bags. Everything, just perfect. The shaped bags were definitely a big accessory favorite. Coming in shapes of squares, rectangles, and circles, and in colors of a tangerine, red, tan, black, and some in plaid. Just bringing back such a Chic, vintage vibe that I just really fall for. When I was younger, I used to have a circular suit that was pink and had “Barbie” written all over it in big, white bold letters. So it’s just really nice to see the Chic, shaped bags come back in.

Just looking at the photos, I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY. Marc Jacobs definitely presented another Amazing finale to New York Fashion Week, just about an hour ago. The collection, set in a dilaplcated beach, heat included. Jacobs sent many models down the runway in Beautiful tweed jackets with fringe and black embroidery, and Beautiful Baroque floral, more tropical inspired prints In the beginning.

Throughout the collection, Jacobs uses very Strong, Dramatic colors that were seen a lot throughout the Fall shows like: Oxblood, Black, Emerald, and Navy. Other elements I’ve noticed throughout the collection was sheer fabrics and Beautiful Baroque and Sparkled embroidery.

Jacobs then sends models down the runway in Beautiful Sparkly dresses, and evening gowns with none other than Sparkles dazzled on them.

And in the end, I see many Beautiful Victorian Inspired gowns really bringing in that Glamour and Romance seen at many of the Spring shows here in New York. With of course, the Beautiful sheer fabric on the sleeves and on the neck, and in very many dark, Dramatic hues. And the Victorian style ruffles on some of the dresses. Kind of reminds me of Halloween, but in a more tasteful and of course Chic way. Now I can’t wait to see what Marc Jacobs has in store for us in three weeks at Louis Vuitton!

Ever since Marc Jacobs debuted his new Signature trend, Sleepwear at his Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 show back in February, as was everyone else, I have definitely been all over this new trend. Showing off his first Spring 2014 collection of the season, Jacobs begins his collection, showing off an array of Beautiful geometric prints in shades of: Black, Grey, Aqua, and Peach. Jacobs also showed off a Beautiful array of silk tops, jackets, and baggy pantre throughout his collection, incorporating his Now Signature Sleepwear trend into the collection.

Still keeping the sleepwear elements in tact; Jacobs designs many of his pieces with the perfect dose of Sparkle. From the Swedish teal Sparkled shift that Julia Nobis sported, to the black and white silk ensembles draped with many Sparkling stars.
