Louis Vuitton Merry-Go-Round Shoes Collection

The merry-go-round of Parisian fashion provided both the theme and the set for Marc Jacobs’ Spring/Summer 2012 collection for Louis Vuitton. As, one by one, the models stepped daintily from the pure white carousel with its prancing horses, it became apparent that this season Louis Vuitton had stopped off – in the words of the show notes – “at a place of pure enjoyment, gentleness, joie de vivre and love”.

The shoes from the show at once continued the sweet, romantic theme of the collection, with two-tone pastel straps, transparent panels, dainty laces and tiny buttons mirroring the outsize versions on the ready-to-wear, and provide a subtle contrast in the form of sharply pointed toes, some with metallic silver toe caps. Mules with high, straight heels are the predominant style, artfully combining textures from suede through patent to metallic calf leather, while pumps – reprising the same sleek shape with a pointed toe – are irresistibly feminine in sorbet shades of refined calf leather or luxurious alligator.
