Who other than Marc Jacobs muse, Sofia Coppola, could have better contributed to Louis Vuitton’s latest collection. The film director and iconic SC bag creator worked with Louis Vuitton’s studio design director Julie de Libran on the Cruise 2012 Collection. Handpicking some of her favorites from Libran’s past creations, Sofia and Julie set about working on their reinterpretation. For Cruise 2012 the message is clear; you need a Vespa (to go with your Leo Sprouse printed helmet), a fur bolero for chilly evenings, a perforated bag, a heart print jumpsuit and of course a tweed sequined jacket.
The Pre-Fall 2010 heart print was re-conceptualized into miniature form. Another print, featuring the Eiffel Tower and other Parisian monuments, was a recurring theme throughout the collection, done in white, red and navy. To top the playful aspect of the clothes, the show was presented on a full grass installation at the NYC Four Seasons Restaurant.
Bags included vintage shaped pieces, such as the Saumur, refreshed as a perforated Monogram. These classic bags covered the color spectrum using a variety of easily desirable hues, from salmon to black, teal and white. Sofia Coppola’s Louis Vuitton SC bag was also showcased in exciting new colors such teal and hot red.
