Well it's about that time......I'm pretty sure most of you fellow fashion-mavens have already read the newest editions of this seasons high fashion magazines, and what I am about to share is probably nothing new. I think we all get a little excited come September, not only for the cooler weather (in my case), but of course for a change in fashion too!. The change of fashion into Fall & Winter- which allow me wear my favorite coats & hats, and well frankly I live in Arizona. So any chance that there might be cooler temperatures on the horizon, is relieving news for me. This happy feeling of anticipation for Fall, goes hand in hand with the fun of taking a peek into the pages of the fashion magazines. A pastime in the world of fashion if you will. Since the early days of fashion publications & catalog's.
Not that I could actually afford anything that is for sale on the runway these days. I just have an interest in viewing the seasons new collections, styles, and amazing work of Art Directors, Designers, & Stylists in the ad campaigns. Vogue, Harper's Bazaar & Glamour magazine mostly all have the same high fashion ads in their publications, but the first time I saw Louis Vuitton's fall collection was in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. The cover has Jennifer Aniston, beautifully re-creating an image of Barbara Streisand.
I get especially excited when the seasons styles incorporate an appreciation for an era of fashion in the past. In this case, Louis Vuitton's fall collection has beautifully represented a taking to the classic, sophisticated, feminine 1950's! Complete with mid-calf full skirts in plaid wool for casual, and luxurious satins for glamming it up. He even took into the details of exhibiting the classic red, blonde & brunette heads into his advertising campaign, I love it! Well done Vuitton team! Oh ya! and I almost forgot to mention the fabulous dressing room set they created!
Even though I have been wearing the mid-calf skirts and sweaters of the 1950's, long before they were on the high fashion runway, and you can bet-cha bottom dollar, I will still be wearing them long after they are yesterday's news. I am still extremely delighted to see an appreciation for, and bringing back of the glorious 1950's influence in mainstream fashion. Even if it is for just a short time!
I have attached the link to view all of Louis Vuitton's 1950's inspired, fall collection- fashions from the runway!
Is anybody else excited about this collection? What are your thoughts?
