LV, Prefall 2010

There weren't any Afro wigs, but the vibe at Louis Vuitton's pre-fall presentation was just as playful as at the Spring ready-to-wear show—think crocheted tube socks in place of furry clogs and micro-mini cashmere sweater dresses instead of pleated kilts.


This season, the design backstory goes, the Vuitton woman has stumbled across a stash of brimming LV heritage trunks (lucky girl!). Inside them is a treasure trove of goodies, many with a 1960's slant, from a gray fox vest straight out of Love Story and a swingy cape cut from a vintage Vuitton blanket to reverse tweed skirtsuits and stripey handkerchief dresses.


And then there are the accessories: tote bags in steel lamé jacquard lined in quilted safety orange, and evening sandals complete with fur leg muffs. The collection may be young at heart, but it's 100 percent luxe.

Hi Tuesdai, it's been so long since the last time I paid a visit to your blog sweetie. I'm losing your link. I've tried over and over again to go to your blog, but with no successful result. Has it been deleted? Because I tried to type the address but it didn't work either... If you have a new link, please do share honey. I miss you...

And you too, Chantelle dearie. I really miss you. Now that you've turned off the comment widget I don't know how can I get in touch with you honey, I miss you...
