Marc Jacobs revealed his pre-fall collection for Louis Vuitton and it’s definitely got a 1940’s swing feel to it. Inspired by a book of wartime fashion, MJ came up with a collection that is flirty and feminine, yet strong and bold at the same time. I absolutely adore the silhouettes from the 1940s and MJ certainly does them justice with his luxurious interpretations. His black cocktail dress is timeless and elegant, and his wool trousers and school boy jackets are sophisticated and charming. They’re the kind of pieces I want in my closet and would look great season after season. I’m also loving how the clothing was styled – the trouser socks, belt, the head pieces, fur, gloves and brooches – all complete the retro look. No close ups yet on the accessories (but from here those shoes are looking pretty insane!) but we’ll keep you up to date on those all-important pieces.
