Feathers and black total looks for next spring. Because Marc Jacobs wants it. Perhaps the gloomy atmosphere of his latest collection for Louis Vuitton symbolizes the nostalgic farewell of who has been the Creative Director of La Maison for the last sixteen years.
Marc said goodbye mourning dressed, transforming the Cour Carrée du Louvre in a unique setting with carousel and escalators included. The models, dressed in stunning feather wigs, socks with the logo of the brand and oversized shoulder pads, did not go unnoticed to an audience that gave Jacobs a resounding ovation at the end of the fashion show.
This visionary, eccentric and rebel man could not leave Louis Vuitton with discretion. That´s how he is.
Bernard Arnault, the president of LVMH, confirmed yesterday after the fashion show designer’s leaving, but he didn´t say anything about his successor. Will be Nicolas Ghesquière the next to take the throne of Vuitton? Today all eyes are on him.
