Louis Vuitton Spring 2012

Marc Jacobs‘ spring collection is a lovely shift towards the dainty and delicate, but not without a little edge. The show itself contained a miraculous white carousel at the epicenter on which the models sat poised in delicate laces and sheer pastels. The bags themselves are tough crocodile and leathers made dainty by the light springtime coloring.

The late great Alexander McQueen lives on through the eyes of designer Sarah Burton. While this Spring collection might not be as dramatic as one would expect from McQueen himself, the pieces overall are equally as breathtaking. The garments are literally dripping with gold; the shoes are to die for and the gowns are extraordinary. There’s a wonderful variety of pleating, lavish collars and headpieces, intricate beading, shimmery fabrics, ruffled layers and metallic accents. The collection is a mythical journey into the extravagant lives of underwater goddesses.

This collection has a definite rock ‘n’ roll gypsy vibe with a concentration on bringing things to the center with accessories like: belts, corsets and waist ties. It’s all in the details as the models were adorned with rockabilly up-do’s, piles of punky jewelry and faint tattoos reminiscent of blue pattern china.

I wasn’t so keen on the rest of the collection. However, this dress is to DIE for.

This collection haunts my dreams. I’m obsessed.
