The designer collection by Louis Vuitton presented the theme of fetishism where the models in suggestive uniforms walked down the glassy black catwalk.
Their faces covered up with tiny plastic masks, S&M corseted waistlines, mini handcuffs and bits of bondage gave them more of a ladylike appearance, revealing something but no flesh on display.
Marc Jacob, the designer, served up lots of great products, from nipped waists yet voluminous coats, often worn with knee boots in sex-shop latex, snazzy pencil skirts and high-waisted jodhpurs that all looked great. And there was plenty of firepower in the accessories – suggestive rubber riding boots with high heels or lacy fetish booties, LV-stamped totes or commercial and cool fur shoulder bags.
A perfect show for the finale to the Paris Fashion Week. Last to appear was Kate Moss, who strode the catwalk in tight jacket, black knickers and boots, smoking a cigarette.
Backstage, Jacobs said the idea for this season’s show came from Claridge’s hotel in London. “Whenever I stay there, I see all these incredible women, coming and going in the morning and the afternoon and at night. I love looking at what they are wearing trying to guess who they’re with – husbands, lovers, clients.”
