Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2009 Collection


Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2009 Collection

Louis Vuitton has just released the photos of their 2009 Pre-Fall collection that was inspired by a book about wartime fashions. WWD reports that Marc Jacobs kept a retro mood for the collection and played with a muted palette with shots of orange and fuchsia, skirts paired with blouises and cardigans, platforms and socks, and a little black crepe dress with sculpted radzimir sleeves and lace panels. Costume jewelry also underscores the Forties feel, with a lily-of-the-valley brooch and a wooden chain necklace.

And here’s what Laird Borrelli-Persson from Style.com has to say. “Worlds (and decades) divide the blooming neon exuberance of Louis Vuitton’s Stephen Sprouse tribute collection and the house’s soberly chic pre-fall lineup, which, said women’s studio director Peter Copping, was inspired by a book on Paris during World War II. Pretty print day dresses and bustier-topped party looks were shown on models who wore their hair in Veronica Lake waves, accessorized with brooches made of wood, papier-mâché, and pearls, and sported beaded socks that alluded to 1940’s hosiery shortages. A sporty drawstring-waist topper and a sexy pair of skinny jersey ski pants added a modern element to the retro mood.”

    ^ Yup. In fashion, Pre-Fall is a pre-collection that is presented in between Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter shows. Once mostly shown to buyers and handfuls of editors, pre-fall (like resort/cruise/pre-spring before it) has become a semi-official addition to the fashion calendar. The clothes are slightly more commercial than the normal ready-to-wear collections; these are mainly for the stores and the customer. The collections hit stores between May and July, filling the gap left when spring runs dry and fall is still being produced.
