Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2009

Creative Director Marc Jacobs revisits the forties for Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Fall 09 collection.

Louis Vuitton’s pre-fall collection takes on a deeply tonal autumnal aesthetic, as soft silhouettes and subdued colours consume the luxury brand. Celebrating the forties hourglass figure, the collection focuses on cinched waistlines and detailed tailoring as cropped hemlines at the ankles and wrists reveal old style ladylike allure. Fur pieces including shrugging caplets and lavish jackets also draw on this forties mood, while splashes of fuchsia combine with textures and shapes to add an extra element of glamour.

Some of the stand out pieces from Louis Vuitton’s pre season, as chosen by Dazed and Confused Fashion Editor, Karen Langley, include luxurious suede boots that zip off at three levels to create a multi-functional pair of shoes for every outfit; sky-high cork wedges embellished with military style studs and patent leather clutches in bright orange and brooding black.
