The resort shows have been taking place over the past several weeks on a maddening non-schedule, and there’s no end in sight. I usually wait for the Celine presentation before I post a round-up, but Phoebe Philo decided to keep the resort collection under wraps.
Ho hum– I’ve liked a few things here and there, but found nothing terribly exciting until the Louis Vuitton collection today. And it’s a ‘wow’! The L.V. women’s design director Julie de Libran told Style.com that her inspiration this season was “the French girl”, a “sophisticated bohemian”. Sounds a bit like Isabel Marant, but that’s not a bad thing.
This is a very cool collection, I especially love the clogs.
