Louis Vuitton / Spring 2013 RTW

REVIEW: by Sarah Mower
What Marc Jacobs began with stripes in New York at the beginning of the season he finished with checks at Louis Vuitton on the last day of the Paris shows. That’s checkmate in the über-corporate chess game of international memorability. As the models progressed, two by two, down a bank of four escalators onto a runway tessellated in giant squares of white and acid yellow, the sixties theme was instantly apparent. Every girl had been uniformly beehived, her ’do finished with an Alice band with a satin bow on the side. Each one wore highly desirable low, pointed-to-square–toe satin pumps with slim metallic heels. There’s nothing simpler, more reductive, and essentially cheerful than that narrow phase of the sixties.
