Recently, in the archetypal Louis Vuitton style, a coterie of celebrities, socialites, fashion industry bigwigs and clients, together with Creative Director Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton’s President and CEO Yves Carcelle, gathered in Milan to preview the renovated flagship store. The beautiful evening started with a cocktail where guests mingled and looked around the newly refurbished store, followed by the exhibition and the after party.
Most renowned fashion dictators such as jeweller Delfina Delletrez Fendi, Franca Sozzanni of the Italian Vogue, Anna Dello Russo from Vogue Japan and socialites Virginie and Claire Courtin Clarins were seen in Louis Vuitton’s fall/winter 2011 pieces.
Of all the women mentioned above, Dello Russo seemed to gain the most attention as she sported one of the runway looks, complete with patent leather corset belt and driving cap.
Also present at the event were ex-Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld, looking simple yet stunning in a dark top paired with printed skirt from Ricarrdo Tisci for Givenchy fall/winter 2011 collection, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Stefano Accorsi, actress Chiara Mastroianni, the Missoni sisters, Shingai Shoniwa of Noisettes and Brazilian beauty Isabelli Fontana.
