“We decided we wanted to do something very pretty, and very gently, and very loving, and just fill it with pretty colors and beautiful light, luminous textures, things that were translucent and transparent. We wanted to define the body and to create shapes, but have air and lightness and softness,” said Marc Jacobs backstage after his Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show for Louis Vuitton.
The season’s Leather Goods translate this light, airy spirit in soft shapes and sorbet shades. The show opened with variations on the Lockit in sheer nylon voile, offering a glimpse of a smaller Monogram canvas purse inside. For Spring/Summer 2012, three shapes – a dainty Lockit Clutch, the classic Lockit and the stretched Lockit East-West – are embroidered inside and out with the Monogram pattern and trimmed with white leather, creating a pure white-on-white look that is one of the key directions of the season.
