It was a Belle Epoque: Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuittton

The Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 show was a dark, romantic, tattered version of the Belle Epoque with jet embroidered jackets, some tasseled and a mise-en-scene reminiscent of a dreamscape Folies-Bergere.

It was also the last collection to be designed by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.

I have always been a Louis Vuitton girl.  I love the small production, the little brown cards that came with each piece often noting the fragility, the handwork, recommendations to hang your LV piece on a padded hanger or folded in a drawer, fringing made by hand...

Will Nicolas Ghesquiere go to LV?  I think he could be the perfect choice to carry on the dress making for the Louis Vuitton girl...
