Kate Moss closed the Louis Vuitton show in Paris today, but unlike last season, she was sans cigarette, bondage-free, and wore a feathery white dress. According to Marc Jacobs, it was Moss's idea to walk again. "[I have] an attitude about being consistent, so I thought, you know what, we're going to consistently close the show with Kate Moss," he explained afterwards.
The show commenced with a curtain drawing back to reveal a life-size white carousel, complete with models perched atop the horses. Jacobs explained to the Telegraph
There's a carousel in the Tuileries, and I'm a hopeless New York Francophile, and it's very Paris ... It's also a bit of a metaphor about this cycle of fashion and how it goes around and around, and regardless of what your references are, whatever you choose to look at, it's just cyclical...We had one of the horses in the office, because all the girls had to pose on it during the fittings. So I did get on it and did some crazy poses.
Reporters were apparently told that Jacobs "would turn-tail and walk away" if asked about Dior, so there was no word on that front, unsurprisingly. The clothes themselves were airy and light, with feathers and a repeating motif of wishbones and daisies, which Jacobs descried as "little talismans that were hopeful and wishful." Some of the dresses were embroidered with tiny jingle bells with pearls inside them. The dominant shape was sixties-inspired, with full skirts, cap sleeves, and lacy collars; meanwhile, the color palette was mostly cream and Easter egg shades of yellow, blue, and green.
