This post is a bit late but I think its a good one so here it goes. This editorial from US Elle June 2009 issue called Double Take (starring Johanna Kneppers-Corbel, styled by Samuel François, photographed by Jacob Sutton) features runway looks from Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2009 collection and then a toned down version of the same look. Runway to reality, Louis Vuitton style!
“Louis Vuitton’s spring runway collection took its cues from the exuberance of Josephine Baker’s 1920’s Paris. Only a certain genius like Marc Jacobs could reinterpret his most extravagant catwalk fantasies as equally chic ready-to-wear.”
