Louis Vuitton Handbags Autumn 2011

 Louis Vuitton Handbags Autumn 2011

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, when it comes to Louis Vuitton runway shows, keep an eye on the bags for they are  the label’s money maker. The Autumn 2011 collection shown during Paris Fashion Week was overall a strong one, with what looks like four or five different themes, starting with the logo collection, which was highlighted by bags with frame silhouettes (which Miu Miu also showed). Generally frame bags have an automatic vintage feel and LV’s are no exception, though the glossy logo leather somehow gives them a gangster moll edge, which adds to their appeal. There was also a satin logo group, and a tote handbag  collection, featuring rich colors like burgundy and green. Finally a fleece fur group, the kind of bag you buy when you are a very rich girl blessed with multiple LVs and are looking for something novel and different. A very solid, back-to-basics collection that should do great at retail. Many more images on the next page.

Designer Giles Deacon of Ungaro chose to make quite the bold statement with with a red talon manicure, featured on the models who walked his Paris Fashion Week Autumn 2011 runway show. These images come courtesy of nail designer Sophy Robson’s blog so I’m assuming she was in charge of nail art duties at the show.

PFW Video: Kate Moss Smoking For Louis Vuitton

10 March 2011, 15.07 | Posted in Fashion Week, Models, Runway Show, celebrity | No comments »


No idea Kate Moss had been retired from the runway for seven years prior to her appearance yesterday on Marc Jacob’s Paris Fashion Week runway for Louis Vuitton Autumn 2011. Or that the day she appeared was some sort of anti-smoking day. In any case, her puffing and half-exposed bum are garnering lots of mainsream news presentation, though we’re still not certain if this is a plus for LV or not. In a way, it’s already overexposed, then again, having Kate sprinkle her magic fairy dust on brands has proven more or less to be money in the bank.

PFW Video: Miu Miu Runway Show Autumn 2011

Miu Miu’s moment continues with its Autumn 2011 runway show at Paris Fashion Week, with its trademark swallows and lush mink stoles back in play. Miucca Prada’s genius is her ability to create signature patterns and graphics, which are instantly identifiable as belonging to Miu Miu (or older sis, Prada).  And what the fashion plates love is that those swallows, monkeys and bananas speak to almost a secret/insider language, far elevated above that of a logo, which for some is viewed as almost crude in its directness.

Chanel presented its Autumn 2011 ready-to-wear collection for Paris Fashion Week today and as always the arrivals were as entertaining as the runway presentation itself. Karl’s girls always go all out, many of them wearing Chanel head to toe or at the very least carrying a quilted bag or clutch. Above is major girl of the moment, Alexa Chung, on the next page Lily Allen, Anna Wintour, Duffy, Emma Roberts, Leigh Lezark, plus a few more.

Sonny Vandevelde gives us his always  humorous look at the backstage ambiance during fashion week. This time enjoy a look at Manish Arora’s Paris Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2011.  Since Arora’s appointment as the creative director fo Paco rabanne we’re curious to see if his collection will finally have the recognition it deserves. Style.com only started documenting his runways in fall 2010, when the label is over a decade old and Vogue UK’s goes as far back 2006. Just some interesting observations…

Jun Takahashi’s Autumn/Winter 2011collection not only illustrates his uncanny ability to create unique looking pieces to be desired, but also a consistent focus on outerwear that has been a recurring theme on many runways. Lots of furry and plushy textures with a street edge and distinction and of course unexpected details . The cat clutch above kind of did it for me. Complete looks on the flip via Vogue Italia.

Nicola Formichetti For Thierry Mugler ‘Anatomy Of Change’ Runway Info

01 March 2011, 22.29 | Posted in Music, Runway Show, celebrity | No comments »

Six months into his role as creative director of Thierry Mugler, Nicola Formichetti will show his first ready-to-wear women’s collection (he debuted men’s in January) tomorrow during Paris Fashion Week. Titled ”Anatomy of Change,” it will livestream on the Thierry Mugler Facebook page at 3PM EST (9PM CET). The above video is a sort of stylistic preview and is part of a series of images Formichetti has been releasing in the lead up to the show. And the look is also in sync with some of the alien looks sported as of late by Formichetti’s favorite partner in crime, Lady Gaga.  

Gaga will be lending a helping hand at the show by premiering her latest single, which her Monsters are speculating will be “Judas,” a song whose lyrics she released on Twitter last week. It’s not clear whether she will sing live at the show. She debuted a remix of “Born This Way” at the January show, but didn’t perform it live.

[UPDATE: Thecut informs that the Monsters are dead wrong....Gaga will be performing a song titled "Government Hooker," not "Judas." And she'll be walking the show! Will she sing and walk at the same time? We shall soon see.]
