Marc Jacobs presented his Spring/Summer 2011 collection for Louis Vuitton in Paris on Wednesday and there was no mistaken of the Chinese influence in the collection. LV’s hat tipped to the affluent Asian consumer with a strong acknowledgment of the significance China and other Asian countries have on luxury fashion.
The collection is electrifying in bright colors of fuchsia, red, jade, purple, orange and of course, glitter. One can see Mr. Jacob’s genius of producing superlight and supercool references even with plush velvets or shimmering fabrics. Paying homage to 1920s Shanghai, cheongsams and pandas were used in these gorgeous and wearable designs.
It’s not hard to see that China is hot retail property for Louis Vuitton.
