Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2011

The Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall collection, modelled by Julia Saner and Olga Sherer, was described as a  "liberated wardrobe for a woman who goes out to conquer the world” and this seemed evident throughout, with the models striking powerful stances in tailored slightly flared trousers, 1920’s hats and elegant clutch bags. Utilizing deep, rich colours such as a mix of dark blue, burgundy and mahogany, the collection was grown-up, straight to the point and quick to evoke a feeling of being back in time - it was daringly retro inspired but with chic modern updates thrown in to the mix such as patent thigh-high boots, fur capes and punchy tote bags.

Louis Vuitton are clearly reeling in the years for their inspiration, and when the outcome is this good - I say why not? Retro inspiration has never been so palpable, yet this off-beat reinvention makes it look cutting edge and simple to wear. With fur capes, elongated coats and heavenly tailoring - it was all super luxurious (rounded off with a dash of sequins, shearling and fur for good measure) - this collection showcased yet another astounding range of clothing that had the ability to make hearts melt - if the last few Louis Vuitton collections are anything to go by, fashion's rich past is the key to it's future.
