From allusions to controversial film The Night Porter (most evident in the caps with masks, but also in the rubber and dominatrix references) to schoolgirl looks with ponytails, this was a gigantic collection of so many looks and transitions that I felt like it had been going on for 40 minutes. But everything was very cohesive.
One of my favorite looks, at left. I love his usage of jewel tones, the creative fabrics and shapes, and especially his play with lines in this collections. Jodphurs with stripes were also slimming, much like the hourglass-creating jacket at left. And god I love the shine on those pretty green boots!
The shoes were sexy and dark, with boots abounding. Leather contrasted with fabric on the same boot, creating a lush-meets-hard effect.
In case you didn’t think Marc was a true master, watch the full show here.
Magnificent shoes after the jump! (and a bag or two…)
The shoes are not as much of a sidekick or afterthought at LV as they are in other shows, though the bags took home more attention. I think the thing that is most notable here about the boots is obviously, their contrast of soft with hard materials, but the toe/heel capping and front “lacing” straight across in nice little horizontal lines is also very nice. The heel aren’t too high except on the rubber boots, which the models seemed to keep tripping over at the show. Who knew Marc could make rubber look so classy that it’d fit in on an LV runway?
And oh my goodness, do I love this bag! I hope the inside is a plush crushed velvet purple oasis for keys, wallet and lipstick!
