Louis Vuitton Fall 2011

The silk mesh, the officer hats, the exaggerated shoulders, the handcuffs, and the elevator doormen. Marc always has the best shows (with the exception of previous Galliano and Dior collections), and he always splurges on them. His Marc Jacobs show cost nearly $1 million to put together. I can only wonder how much the Louis show cost.

In any case, this was really great, minus the rubber red heels. What is up with those? Marc is not known for his foot wear, but that was a bit redic. This was very much a Marc collection, a lot of his usual elements were seen, like the rounded collar, the fit of the clothes, and the pretty preppy luxurious day wear. I love the peacoats, and especially those handcuffs. Love the fact that Kate Moss closed the show, cigarette in hand and everything.

Love Louis!
