Louis-Vuitton-Spring-Summer-2016-Lookbook-2

For style ideas, we turn to lookbooks…and we are ever-grateful for the kind of inspiration they give. So allow us to take you in for a spin while one of our favorite brands, Louis Vuitton, comes up with their own for Spring Summer 2016! Drool-worthy couture is everything for the budding fashionista, and trust us – we’re making notes of our own!

The over-all color palette for this lookbook may reflect a more subdued, neutral take but you can never mess with the basics! And of course, the luxury brand knows this fact very well…keeping it all under control. Still basic, but with attitude.

The Louis Vuitton Lookbook for Spring Summer 2016 was shot by the visionary Jurgen Teller, under natural lighting and with models posing in the studio behind glass – reflecting the sun, sights and Paris sky. There is no perfect background other than this, and the attention to detail on this lookbook is really obvious. We’re seeing some fashion-forward bags and footwear (have you seen the Twist Chain bag?)…actually, we’re just dying to get our hands on the pieces from this lookbook. So, any thoughts on this? Comment now!

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton, one of the most ancient brands in the fashion world, the history of which traces back to the early 1854 and which has survived three centuries in a row, seems to imitate Benjamin Button, living its life back to front, annually growing younger and younger. Actually, in recent years the credit for the brand’s fresh and breezy atmosphere goes largely to one of the most talented and ingenious fashion designers of this generation, Nicolas Ghesquiere, who has gained great respect thanks to his experimental soul and his innate avant-garde style. Today in the morning he once again sincerely opened the door of his warm soul to large masses at the Fondation Louis Vuitton presenting the futuristic and digital Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2016 collection, which was evidently worth the finale day of Paris Fashion Week spring 2016.

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

The digital design of the runway with video screens took us to a place where everything was made of blocks; there was an obvious reference to the popular video game Minecraft but accompanied by an impressive psychological session that was stating to build your own life yourself since your only limit was your imagination, day and night, shine and rain. Those were definitely the very thoughts that had led Nicolas Ghesquiere to build his own castle at Louis Vuitton atelier and transmit to us his utmost fortitude and moral strength by means of his rough and vigorous pieces.

The models were being forwarded down the runway as if realistic warriors, who were relying on their heavy and strong ensembles against the cruel enemies. The leather and heavy chains were predominating in the collection being the best materials to use as a symbol of power and energy. Evidently there were some androgynous elements embracing the entire Louis Vuitton spring 2016 collection, but Ghesquiere, however, had not ignored that he was dealing with fragile and tender ladies. That is why next to some roughly-tailored leather jackets and vests there were also loose-fitting ankle-skimming frocks showcased, decorated with beads in the form of some leaves, branches and flowers.

The show opened a pink leather biker jacket with a black rough belt at the bottom, which was paired with a black studded skirt. The festival of leather jackets and vests with various designs among them the most impressive being cutting-edge Louis Vuitton monogrammed ones continued till the end of the show. There were also happening some leather trenches that could easily turn into cool front-zip mini dresses.

The designer’s favorite Liya Kebede was looking breathtaking with a zip close colorblock leather jacket, one sleeve of which was featuring Louis Vuitton popular monogram, the second one – red-white pinstripes, the black top part being effectively matched with electric blue bottom. We hadn’t yet enjoyed those large fan style crop tops combined with leather shorts when the designer revealed his experimental soul on a range of surf trousers and pantsuits, some of which were carrying astronomical images. But those were patchwork trousers of silver-black-blue-yellow or grey-black-green-blue colorblocks with zip-front design at the bottoms that provoked us to daydream about the warm seasons.

All-white pout skirts and white shirts decorated with frills at the sleeves and at the neck were fetching some poetic vibes into the collection. Mesh tops having side slits, crescent design at the chest and fringes at the hems seemed to serve as armor for fragile women while a couple of beaded mini dresses with wrinkled bottoms were mimicking realistic mirrors that were to reflect any act of courage.

The king of suitcases and handbags was certainly expected to bring forth brand new samples. Drawstring backpacks with tassels swinging at one side, chain-handled totes sometimes with rumpled surface as well as micro-sized trunks are claiming to become the ideal nests for our personal things. And what should our tender feet expect from Louis Vuitton this spring to come? Creeper sandals styled with heavy chains and androgynous shoes with exposed white stitches are to hotfoot the city streets when the sun starts spreading its warm rays.

This is wonderful life, this is your life, so band those Louise Vuitton leather straps around your hands and struggle, struggle till the end!

Louis Vuitton Epi St Jacques

Louis Vuitton

louis_vuitton_epi-st-jacques-magnoliaThere are bags you buy for yourself and there are bags you buy for your mother. TheEpi St Jacques, from Louis Vuitton, is one such latter bag. And fittingly, for those of you old enough to remember, the St Jacques isn’t exactly a new bag because in the 80s when Epi was at its peak within Louis Vuitton, there was already a St Jacques.

The new one is similar, albeit with a few changes. Gone is the top zip closure, as well as its unusually long shoulder handles. And while the old version had sides that finished on an edge, the new one has gently gusseted sides, allowing for that tad more when you have days with more to carry around.

Priced at SGD3200 (the price is rather Mum-friendly too, no?), the 38 cm by 27 cm shoulder tote now comes in a variety of beautiful shades, from a bright purplish pink (Pivoine) to a dusty pink that I adore called Magnolia (shown above). Then there’s a bright blue (Bleuet) as well as your standard Black and White.

Lightweight, functional and with enough curves to make any woman blush, this could be something you (I mean, your Mum) can love for a long time to come, especially with Epi’s legendary ridged leather grain that’s almost indestructible. In other words, it’s also Mummy-proof as well.

Louis Vuitton has teamed up with Parisian retailer Colette for a pop up store. From June 22th to July 18th, LV will present their menswear fall 2015-2016 show collection on the upper floor of Colette’s premises. This will be Louis Vuitton’s first time presenting their menswear line at a locale other than their own stores.

Colette-host-Louis-Vuittons-menswear-pop-up-store-1
Louis Vuitton’s fall 15-16 collection was a tribute to the creations of Christopher Nemeth, the late English fashion designer and artist. Developed by Kim Jones, Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton men’s collections, the collection references the cord print and the “Harajuku”-spirit silhouette that inspired Nemeth’s work in Japan.
