For Winter 2012, Louis Vuitton invents a wardrobe of essential, must-have shoes and makes the most of the occasion by playfully sketching a portrait of the ideal woman. This new collection, created in the Fiesso d’ Artico atelier in Venetia, draws its opulence, variety, and excellence from the deepest wells of time-honoured savoir-faire. Four lines that express all the facets of the Louis Vuitton woman!
Icône / Icon
She likes the sobriety of perfect lines and timeless shapes. Perched on vertiginously sexy heels, she trusts the uncluttered contours of patent-leather, open-toe pumps. She can be cavalier, as well, wearing flat-heeled boots in “bleu infini” or beige “terre d’ombre” leather, embellished with tops in embossed Monogram leather.
Garçonne / Tomboy
She borrows the greatest hits from men’s wardrobe and asserts her own androgynous look. Floral leather Derbies are always chic expressed in beige velvet calfskin, reminding her of the hustle-and-bustle charms of the city. Her rebellious instinct keeps her rocker side evident in biker-spirit thigh-highs or ankle boots in grained leather with rabbit-fur trim.
Glamourette / Glamour Girl
She’s sophisticated and loves to wear precious materials and finely-wrought lines. She attracts attention with the lightness of a metallic gold or silver velvet calfskin Oxford. But she loves the protective luxury of a platform boot with wool tops trimmed in mink.
Grand Soir / Ultimate Evening
She’s ultra-refined, following two strict rules to accessorize her cocktail wear: classic or unconventional. An impeccable pump in subtly bronzed leather, decorated with a precious python strap, or velvet calfskin ankle boots with sky-high heels and an irresistibly girly bow!
The Louis Vuitton Winter 2012 collection is a perfect reflection of the ideal woman: sophisticated, confident, complex, subtle… Essential!
