Today’s post got two aims; one is to feature the latest Louis Vuitton collection designed by Marc Jacobs, while the second is to say good-bye to the man just mentioned. Well yes; call it breaking news but the rumours are confirmed facts by now; Marc Jacobs is leaving LV after his 16-year-long tenure at the brand. Jacobs presented his final show in Paris, that was dedicated to celebrate his greatest hits – created entirely in black, as was his first show for the label. An eclectic mash-up of sheers, feathers, denim and excess could best describe the pieces with a hint of tomboyish feel. ‘Jacobs dedicated the show to all the women who have inspired him and the showgirl in every one of them’ – as he explained to Vogue. The reason of his leaving though – as WWD reported – is that the American designer wants to focus on taking his brand public on the stock market, as it heads towards an IPO. Well, I suppose an era has just ended and a new one is yet to come…Hello former Balenciaga creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière?
Der heutige Post hat zwei Ziele: Das erste ist, die aktuelle Louis Vuitton Kollektion Designed by Marc Jacobs vorzustellen, und das zweite, sich von dem soeben Genannten zu verabschieden. (more…)
What’s your favourite accessories-type, ladies; shoes, jewellery or bags? Either of them, you’ll probably turn out to be a bag-lover as you discover the brand new ‘Le Dix’ model from Balenciaga. The dark-toned Calfskin Cartable bag is the prettiest piece of Alexander Wang’s first handbag collection for the Parisian label. ‘The name, which is French for ten, alludes to the fashion house’s original address at 10 Avenue George V and the handbag having the ‘perfect ten’ in terms of craftsmanship.’ The beautifully structured, minimalist piece of the line of satchels is the perfect choice for the ladylike-but-modern woman, who wants simple yet functional quality in her wardrobe. I’m sure that these bags will not fail to toy with your heart however the trick is that some of us got used to the Balenciaga-like edgy glam, so decide it on your own whether Alexander’s aesthetic isn’t too simplistic and minimalistic. As for us, we couldn’t resist wearing it! What about you? PS The video was shot by Toby McFarlan Pond under the artistic direction of Wang to a song titled ‘Light Foot’ by Terry Devine-King.

Blumarine took the ‘rise and shine approach’. Due to the rather low V-cut and densely draped effect, the dress showcases some innocent sexiness with an elegant touch. The beautiful ply at the lower waist results a waterfall-like effect on the thin satin fabric, which makes the dress decidedly the best summer night wear. / Blumarine hat die ‘Einfach Strahlen’ Taktik aufgenommen. Durch den ziemlich tiefen V-Ausschnitt und den dicht drapierten Effekt zeigt das Kleid unschuldige Sexiness mit einem eleganten Touch. Die wunderschöne Falte an der unteren Taille resultiert in einem Wasserfall-ähnlichen Effekt auf dem Satinstoff, was das Kleid zur besten Wahl als sommerliches Abendkleid macht.
