What better muse than the utterly chic french woman? Relaxed, almost bohemian yet tailored, the Louis Vuitton‘s resort collection formed an entire womans wardrobe, with outfits suitable for every and any occasion.
In fact, Julie de Libran [Louis Vuitton’s women’s design director) specified that the collection was for a “sophisticated bohemian…[who] likes to mix and match, and combine comfort and sensuality”.
With such versatility on the agenda, there was an air of nonchalance and an eclectic mix which drew to mind those French icons of the ’70’s. Fittingly, a deep French blue was championed through a double-breasted pantsuit, and there were no shortage of tweed pieces (which are an obvious essential to any French woman). The French blue continued, making for a very maritime esque classic appeal.
Cashmere robe like coats were tied at the waist, alongside boxy tops and miniskirts, and there was even a casual-ish take on the traditional suit. There was also a decent amount of denim pieces embedded within the looks (funnily enough the word denim actually comes from “de Nîmes”: the French region where the fabric was first made), with a-line frayed hem skirts, maxi skirts and button downs. Tying into Jacob’s last collection with the house, floral frocks mimicked those embroidered tulle wallpaper like vintage prints.
