Probably yes and that’s what Marc Jacobs did for his latest spring/summer 2014 collection presentation for Louis Vuitton at the recent Paris Fashion Week.
Rest assured, fans could look forward to experiencing a new take on Louis Vuitton’s artistry and heritage based on Ghesquiere’s point of view.
Why Cher and Miley? The answer is simple: Cher used to rock the punk gothic look back in the 80s and 90s when Tom Cruise was her boyfriend.
Furthermore, the spring/summer collection too juxtaposes some of Jacob’s previous works; hence it can be aptly seen as his retrospective of works throughout his long tenure with the storied French maletier and maison du mode.
On her head is a headpiece made of ostrich plumes, designed by renowned milliner Stephen Jones. The same headpiece was also spotted on the retinue of other models throughout the presentation of the 41 looks.
Abound with New York Street influence, the spring/summer collection is laden with outlandish pieces such as luxurious Mongolian lamb rugs, heavily embellished biker jackets, and faded blue denim worn underneath sheer tulle tank dresses that are heavily peppered with flapper spirit (think heavy art deco-esque embellishments). Lots of plumage could be seen adorning the shoulders while meticulous patchworks go with the manly blazers.
For instance, the boucle jacket with plumage embellishments does look great on a 40-year old fashionista if she ditches the outrageous headpiece and maybe, pair it with a pair of subtle palazzo trousers in the same colour.
Ditto a two-piece pantsuit with heavy embellishments on the shoulders and around the waistline with light volumes for a 50-plus partygoer as long as she does not literally copy the look in its entirety. Well, unless if she’s attending a Halloween or a costume themed party, that is.
