LOUIS VUITTON WOMEN’S COLLECTION AUTUMN-WINTER 2013-14
This season the focus of the collection is on the luxurious quality and treatment of the materials produced by the savoir-faire of Louis Vuitton ateliers. The house’s Monogram and Damier canvas are nowhere to be seen on the catwalk; instead, its three iconic bag shapes have been realized in supple fabrications and softer constructions to emphasise their more sensuous and feminine aspects.
The mink Speedys have handles carved in exotic, aromatic woods that have been antiqued by hand; the handles on the python bags are made from horn; and the signature metal chain on the Pochette Accessoire has been adorned with precious stones.
Fabrics and structures derived from menswear have been rendered more feminine through their fabrication. From marabou linings to feather embroidery to dégradé effects, the embellishments are decadent indulgences redolent of the boudoir. Don’t take our word for it, head on over to Limegrove in Holetown and ask them about it…
