This collection is definitely one of my favorites from Paris Fashion Week. Besides my somewhat biased opinions, as Louis Vuitton is one of my favorite design houses, I loved the colors, clean lines, accessories, and classic designs of this runway collection. One of my favorite aspects of Louis Vuitton in general is the art of taking something so simple and making it elaborate and fabulous. I love the hats and the bright colored dress shoes, as seen in the first three pictures, as well as the classic khaki pants paired with a track jacket and traditional dress socks, as seen in the next picture.
I saw a lot of cropped or rolled-up pants in the Spring 2010 Menswear shows, and I must say that I love it (ankles are the new chest cleavage lol), and what better to pair with a bare ankle than sparkly shoes! (pictures five, six and seven) One of my favorite things about fashion is untraditional portrayals, especially when combined with the traditional (such as the rolling-up of dress pants, love it). I'm crazy about feminine characteristics of a masculine item, such as these oh-so-shiny shoes, especially when worn with gorgeous suits, tailored shorts, and classic fitted jackets, as seen here.
The last picture was actually the first look of the show; it looked very well put together and for some reason, to me, slightly resembled American sportswear. I love those amazing shoes (all the shoes in this collection are amazing) especially with the scrunched socks, also seen a lot in this collection and in several other Spring 2010 Menswear shows. I usually don't like too much of one color, especially when worn on top of each other but I liked the long-fitting jacket/cardigan with the pushed-up sleeves, on top of the matching colored collared shirt, paired with the rolled up shorts. Not to mention the glasses to top of the sunday with a cherry.
I also enjoyed the simple accessorizing of the lanyards, scarves, bow ties, and again those wonderful hats. Overall I thought this collection was a success. The colors were great, the cuts and necklines of all the pieces were perfect and the relaxed effect (rolled-up, pushed-up, scrunched-down) made everything look very classic yet luxurious.
