Roving Reporter : Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton was a feast of colour. Bright yellow, monochrome, peach, nude and emerald green all made an appearance. There was a distinct Rococo feel in the prints, with a very 'wallpaper, vintage' style. The colour combinations were divine and exciting and each new look brought new beauty.  Love the printed leggings!

This collection featured a host of ruffled pieces and was extremely romantic. I love the asymmetric ruffling on this skirt. Its all about the details these days, to get shoppers to part with their cash, designers know they have to offer beauty to the extreme and this modern and pretty, young collection did just that. Vuitton set the ball rolling for becoming more edgy with their S/S 09 collection (see Madonna adverts) and this furthers their good work.

When not ruffling it up, models were decorated in very voluminous pieces. Big skirts, peplum jackets and squared shoulders all borrowed from the eighties and a slight punky feel that was accentuated by the thigh high, lace up boots.

Like with a host of other designers. Vuitton has gone for the skinny belt for 09, choosing to waist voluminous jackets to create a full, curvy, silhouette.

A cool, edgy, youthful collection from one of the worlds most lusted over fashion brands.
