Paris Fashion Week A/W11: Kate Moss is smoking for Louis Vuitton
Marc Jacobs ended the Fashion Week season with a bang today at Louis Vuitton. There's something about his work at the brand that always works. After his fall 2009 and S/S11 shows we were all obsessed and were sporting anything Asian-inspired for the next six months and of course, his Mad Men inspired fall 2010 collection left us all wanting to embrace our curves and bring out the midi-length pieces that had been buried in our wardrobes after seasons upon season of succumbing to the mini.
This season was all about the mistress and all things fetish, which is something Giles Deacon tried to work with this week at Emanuel Ungaro. The show began with a model being delivered to the back of the runway through a typically French elevator before walking the runway in a sheer black skirt showing off suspenders teamed with a simple black top and corset. Maid costumes were less minimum wage and more chic mistress trying to seduce her lover. "We associate uniforms with fetish because uniforms suggest roles that require effort and commitment, whether that's a maid's dress or a dressage jacket," he explained after the show. Continuing with the festish theme, Jacobs showed a selection of shiny leather trenches and coats in black and brown options and tweed was slipped in on two piece skirt suits in navy, which added a more sophisticated (and wholesome) feeling to the otherwise provocative collection.
