Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2008 2009

It’s here! Marc Jacobs’ fall/winter 2008-2009 collection for Louis Vuitton is here!

The clothes! The shoes! The headpieces! OMG I **LOVE** the headpieces!!! You know what they remind me of? Chocolate shavings!!!! Yep! You know when you order desserts like cake or ice cream or what have you from a fancy schmancy place and they always have these chocolate shavings on top of the dessert? The headpieces remind me of those!!!

Click click click for MOAR… and my personal favourites in this collection.

Compare the headpieces…

Chocolate Shavings

Nice no? They also remind me of licorice because of the color.

Anyway… on to the good stuff.

Marc did a complete 180 from Spring 2008’s colourful extravaganza.

Y’all know me… I’m terrible when it comes to putting my thoughts into writing but when I saw the collection as a whole, the words that came in my mind are: austere, cool, shapely, chic, refined and tailored. Very grown up! Even the set itself was soo cool. The background is fantastic! It’s like looking at the horizon… a sea of calm with all the models marching in the middle.

Here are some of my favourites…

I **LOVE** the oversized shirt collars! If I had to get one item from this collection that would be the white shirt…

This look is soo chica!!! Ooh la la!

I love these two jackets…

This one looks very chunky but cute. I know what you’re thinking… say what you want but I can tell you with honesty that I could see myself wearing that jacket in cold weather with some skinny black trousers and a big black clutch!

It’s nice to see my gurl Sofi! I also love this jacket/coat that’s fitted till the hips. Beautiful!

Sofi told me they did super late-night fittings for this show. Proof that everyone involved at Vuitton, from the design team to the models work really hard.

Those MC Hammeresque pants are all over the rage in Paris! Remember how when I first saw them at Dior Homme I was like "uhhhh no way Hoooo-sayyyyyyyyy"? Well, I’ve finally warmed up to them. I think it’s refereshing and it takes a heck of a lot of balls to pull them off.

In fact, I now want to get a pair of my own. I had a bitch fight with this girl from TFS when someone asked "who on earth would want to wear trousers the size of a tree". Well, I answered her question by posting these photos of women I found at garancedore, which is one of my new fave style websites.

Hammer pants

It’s hammer time!

This is effortless chic…

I love the fur stole and the photo doesn’t give the skirt justice… it looks so much better on the video.
The shape is incredible! Not sure about the bag though…

There’s a new speedy in town and I love it!!

The iconic speedy now comes with all the lettering engraved on the leather. Is this going to be a new ‘line’ at Vuitton? Only time will tell…

Out of all the bags in the collection, I personally love this clutch. I know, I know, but there’s something about that piece that makes me quite drawn to it. Oohh to look at things we all can’t afford. The dress is quite chic, too.

Nice eh? Let’s not even start with the shoes. The shoes I love so much!!!

The only thing that left me scratching my head was Miss Disney Ice Princess…

if memory serves me right, (I could be wrong here), I don’t recall
seeing a gown at Vuitton in the past and this is an interesting move
for Marc.

Overall, I like this collection. It’s very sophisticated and chic.

Who’s your papi now?

    Hey BB! I am glad you liked the show….I am super happy with both collections this season…God, I love my job!!!! All my love, Marc.

  5. “Grown-up” is exactly what I thought of too, super chic and confident. I’m not sure about the shoes though, those are going to take some practice. Overall, a pleasing collection and I adore structure and architectural pieces and the palette. So fine.

  6. BryanBoy its like you’ve read my mind!!! I agree 100%. I am very impressed with this collection, definitely one of my favorites. God I love Marc!! He’s genius.

  7. I love LOVE love the new collection!
    This is the kind of collection that makes me want to cut off my peen…so I can finally become the woman I want to be!
    Kidding.
    J’adore the bags, the pearlescent finishes…esp that bag you weren’t sure about…it’s like a square duffle. And OH THE SPEEDY…It could be a man-bag…I might just carry it!
    And Thank YOU for turning me on to garancedore.fr…My new fave street style blog. Tres TRES chic!

  8. Impressive, artistic and absolutely worthy of a hearty bravo. Well done Marc.

  9. likeyeah

    I was gonna say something about the headpieces. But i saw marc’s comment. I’ll just shut up anyway. LOL

  10. likeyeah

    On the headpieces, bryan what would you wear ? Dior’s or LV’s One’s South east asian inspired, one’s more of korean.

  11. lvnono

    lol, it’s fugly time…
    Just because it’s by Marc you don’t have to say you love it

  12. Yeah! I totally love it. You are so right about the headpieces. Just like chocolate shavings.

  13. Those shoes make the models walk like cows. – I’ve only seen women in Australia walk as badly as this. Even Natasha was clomping along. God.
    The collection looks exquisite in stills though. The big shirt-collars especially. Bravo on the clothes, Marc. Less so on the shoes.
