Marc Jacobs could not have chosen a better note with
which to close the Spring 2002 collectionshis Louis
Vuitton show perfectly captured the dreamy, romantic
aesthetic that has dominated the season.
One of the many feats Jacobs pulled off was to make snakeskin soft and demure. His gently scalloped silver python skirts and
cropped jackets conveyed not a hint of aggression, while a
delicate snake trim also surfaced on a mini-suit and
several perky dresses. Elsewhere, Jacobs offered some of the best
peasant dresses aroundA-lined, swimming with delicate
paisley prints, and grazing the floor. The same
silhouette was used for the empire washed denim robes,
which gave the humble fabric an air of grandeur. Lamé
jackets with naif embroideries are just the thing to
throw over any of these superb dresses.
This is clearly the season to invest in Louis Vuitton
accessories. After the street-inspired (and by now
ubiquitous) graffiti totes, what better change of pace than a sweet butterfly, mouse or winking owl bag?
