Louis Vuitton’s dark glossy world

MARC JACOBS, LOUIS VUITTTON, “TO THE SHOWGIRL IN EACH OF US” COUR CARRE DE LOUVRE, PARIS. It became perfectly clear as one enters the show space of Louis Vuitton that Marc Jacobs will be departing the luxury goods house of Louis Vuitton. The venue was all black and everything was deja vu. As the first exit emerges emblazoned with Stephen sprouse’s famous writings on a cat suit it all became a moment of perfect clarity. The entire collection was a Belle Epoch moment everything was jet beaded, jet fringed feathered, tulled and all the models was adorned with Stephen Jones feathered headdress. It was all a showgirls dream, a dark glossy world where darkness shines. It was an homage to the women who has touched and influenced him and whom he listed by name. Betty Catroux, Anna Wintour. Rei Kawakubo, Coco Chanel and Miuccia Prada to name just a few. It was a truly perfect end to a collaboration that catapulted Louis Vuitton to mass-market appeal. It’s a big shoe to fit, whoever is chosen to be the next creative director, but a perfectly good candidate is waiting in the wings. ENTER NICHOLAS GHESQUIER
