Instead of off it. Honestly, this season’s Paris Fashion Week has been far too disturbing with all the antics and headlines.
Who provided the drama? None other than Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton; who knew the man did anything other than anodyne bags and snooze-some clothes? Well he obviously felt inspired this season and the cause for this was curiosity about the fetish relationship women have with accessories and clothing.
What he delivered was a dark, brooding and sexualised collection of womanly vintage pieces corseted in rubber and firm boning. Militaristic, severe and hard line. The way it was presented just has to be seen.
