Louis Vuitton Cruise 2011 Collection

“For Fall, Marc went back to curves, the woman. This is continuing in that spirit, but going to extremes with jewelry and accessories,” announced design director Julie de Libran at Louis Vuitton’s Resort presentation at the Maritime Hotel. In keeping with the extremely feminine look of Marc Jacobs’ Paris show, dresses in upholstery florals came with flared skirts, nipped waists, and pushed-up busts. Those looking for the “new”—a concept Jacobs has questioned of late—will fasten on a butter yellow shorts suit and the introduction of pants. A pair of high-waisted trousers in double-face navy cotton, belted over a navy lace T-shirt, had a vibe that was more seventies than fifties. As for the accessories, yes, there were oversize chain necklaces, leather driving gloves, and bold, floppy hats—all money in the bank for the powerhouse brand—but extreme still might not be the right word. Here, as at many other Resort shows in the last two weeks, the models wore easy-on-the-feet sandals and ballerina flats. – Nicole Phelps, Style.com
