Spring 2012 Trends: Youthful Innocence at Louis Vuitton (Lace & Pastels)

Feb 26, 2012

Given my propensity for lace, it's probably no surprise that it's my favourite trend for spring. Of all the collections that showcased it, the Louis Vuitton line was by far my favourite and not just because Kate Moss walked in the show! The subtle use of pastels in the pieces was the most appealing aspect; dresses with an almost ombre effect, soft pinks and minty greens overlaid with white over-sized eyelet lace meant that anyone could wear the colours of the season without having to worry if they were flattering. 

This was a super sweet collection that channeled a youthful romantic vibe, reminiscent of the 60s. Besides being mesmerized by the doily lace, ostrich feathers and eye catching accessories, I was struck by the silhouettes and longer hemlines. Everything looked slightly vintage yet modern in a modest way. There was a bit of an over-sized, but balanced feel to the details; exaggerated collars, big buttons and large lace cutouts working in harmony with the shapes that appeared on the catwalk. 

The accessories were as beautiful as the rest of the collection; candy coloured shoes interspersed with metallic accents, purses that looked like they'd go with anything, dishevelled up-dos topped with rhinestone tiaras and headbands, I look forward to seeing if Marc Jacob's fashion fairytale influences what's available in stores this spring.
