Louis Vuitton, RST12, Paris.
The recent Resort 2012 collection from Louis Vuitton featured Parisian details and prints in tones of mid blues and raspberry reds. The collection pieces are the result of a collaboration between Sophia Coppola and the Louis Vuitton Studio Design Director, Julie de Libran.
The collection features a peek-a-boo motif across the various fabric textures from perforated leather on garments and accessories, to fabric made out of woven strips and cut-out details, as well as eyelets used both as decorative borders and as a center front fastening. There were also repeat prints and placement prints featuring a hyper-Parisian Eiffel Tower motif and some other more organic textured prints that looked as though bleach had been dripped across the fabric. It also interesting to note the reappearance of the raglan sleeve shape that has been seen on other collections recently, continuing a silhouette with a softer and more rounded shoulder.
