Colourful Optimism: The Louis Vuitton Show At PFW

From tiny, almost pixel-like squares, to giant versions of the geometric shape, the square was the starting point of the collection created by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.

Inspired by artist Daniel Buren’s Les Deux Plateaux installation, which features three columns of varying heights, Jacobs too chose to present this season’s clothes in three different lengths: mini, midi and maxi.

The skirts, maxi dresses, jackets, tops and pants with a retro Mod vibe were not however the only pieces to receive the famous Damier look (Louis Vuitton’s signature square print). The simple, monochrome looks, just like the ones with a discreet floral print, were paired with reinvented versions of the Vuitton Speedy bag and pointy pumps, all adorned with tiny squares.

An energetic collection, full of freshness and vitality, in an utterly optimistic chromatic palette, absolutely perfect for the spring/summer season.
