LV-ism

12 Jul


Oh, Louis. LV’s latest line summons the age of longer skirts and smaller waists. Once again styles from the 50s are appearing on our runways, with a modern twist. This low neckline and the thin straps would never fly back in the day. But today, they bring this tried and true ultra-feminine silhouette into the 21st century.

What this means for us: As with the line from the costume designer of Mad Men, you must pay attention to the silhouette. That’s the huge change here. A-line, voluminous skirts that reach below the knee mixed with a very small, accentuated wasitline and a tight upper – this is the shape we’re going for. The silk gloves and leather materials are just an added bonus.
